Trump says USA military solutions for North Korea are 'locked and loaded'

Trump says USA military solutions for North Korea are 'locked and loaded'

President Donald Trump is warning of military action, saying the U.S.is "locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely". "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" the president tweeted. If carried out, it would be its most provocative missile launch to date.

Should North Korea attack the US or one of its allies, Trump said that "things will happen to them like they never thought possible, OK?" He did not comment on whether the U.S.is considering a pre-emptive strike on North Korea.

Trump has attempted to leverage China, North Korea's only major ally, to apply more economic pressure on the isolated regime. Beijing has expressed frustration with both Pyongyang's repeated nuclear and missile tests and with behavior from South Korea and the US, such as military drills, that it sees as increasing tensions. Defense Secretary James Mattis said Thursday that the U.S.is "gaining diplomatic results" and a conflict in Korea would be "catastrophic".

"He has been very threatening, beyond a normal statement", Trump said of Kim on Tuesday, in comments that were reportedly off the cuff.

On Thursday, Trump told reporters: " Let's see what he does with Guam".

"Let's see what he does with Guam".

"Frankly, the people who were questioning that statement, was it too tough?"

The United States has recently intensified training flights of B-1B bombers stationed at the Andersen air base in Guam after tensions rised over North Korean increased missile tests.

Trump's comments followed a North Korean claim over state television that it was preparing to fire four missiles towards the USA strategic island Guam.
