US President Donald Trump issued another warning to North Korea on Friday with a reference to American weapons as being “locked and loaded.”
“Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!”
Trump wrote on Twitter, a day after his defense secretary said the United States was ready to counter any threat from Pyongyang.
Trump had warned North Korea on Thursday not to strike Guam or U.S. allies, saying his earlier threat to unleash “fire and fury” on Pyongyang if it launched an attack may not have been tough enough.
After North Korea disclosed plans to fire missiles over Japan to land near the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, Trump said the move would prompt “an event the likes of which nobody`s seen before.”
