Donald Trump says US military ‘locked and loaded’ for North Korea

1 min


Donald Trump has said military solutions for North Korea are “locked and loaded”, amid escalating tensions over nuclear weapons.

His latest tweet comes after several days of strident rhetoric from both sides, including a spontaneous statement by Mr Trump that Pyongyang faced “fire and fury like the world has never seen” if it continued to threaten the US with missiles.

Mr Trump said: “Military solutions are now fully in place,locked and loaded,should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!”

The President did not specify whether the solutions were preemptive or reactive.

The latest row over North Korea’s missile and nuclear weapons programmes was sparked by its test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on 28 July.

Its range showed the North was now capable of striking the mainland US, the regime claimed.
