Tensions continue to rise between the United States and North Korea after President Donald Trump taking office in January of this year. Since then, North Korea has made multiple threats against the U.S., recently stating that the U.S. is pushing North Korea “to the brink of nuclear war.”
President Trump reacted to North Korea’s recent threats on Tuesday, August 8th, stating that the country “best not make any more threats to the United States.” If they continue making threats, “They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
Unfortunately, North Korea is still refusing to heed the U.S. warning. After Trump’s remarks, North Korea announced their detailed plan to launch a missile in the U.S. territory of Guam.
However, President Trump continues to stand up for the people of this country and other countries. Following Trump’s powerful “fire and fury” comment, the president sent another strong warning to North Korea. He said, “Frankly, the people that were questioning that statement ‘Was it too tough?’, maybe it wasn’t tough enough.”
He continued, "What [North Korea] has been doing and getting away with, it's a tragedy. And it can't be allowed." He also mentioned that he would consider negotiation, but in the past, negotiation hasn't been effective.

Ironically, Donald Trump commented on the nuclear weapons issue with North Korea 18 years ago, long before he became President of the United States. Trump’s opinion in 1999 is oddly still relevant today.
