‘Maybe it wasn’t tough enough. They’ve been doing this to our country for a long time, for many years, and it’s about time that somebody stuck up for the people of this country and for the people of other countries,’ Trump countered. ‘So if anything, maybe that statement wasn’t tough enough.’
Trump said Kim Jong-Un should be ‘very, very nervous’ about U.S. retaliation. ‘Because things will happen to them like they never thought possible, OK?’ he said.
He warned Kim in remarks from his golf club’s doorstep not to even contemplate an attack on the U.S. or its allies or he will pay the ultimate price. Unlike previous American leaders, Trump said, he is not ‘weak and ineffective’ and will follow through on his threats.
The president spoke to reporters ahead of a national security briefing this afternoon on the intensifying crisis with North Korea.
