President Donald Trump issued another dire warning regarding North Korea, suggesting Thursday that the country would face an unprecedented attack if it struck Guam.

“It will be an event the likes of which nobody's seen before, what will happen in North Korea,” Trump told reporters. Trump also said that Kim Jong Un had greatly “disrespected” America and that he wouldn't get away with that in a Trump presidency.

“He's not going to go around threatening Guam,” Trump added. “And he's not going to threaten the United States. And he's not going to threaten Japan. And he's not going to threaten South Korea.”

On Tuesday, Trump similarly warned that North Korea would face “fire and fury” in response to additional provocations. Two days later, Trump said those comments may not have been “tough enough.

As was previously reported, North Korea said Thursday that by mid-August it would complete plans to attack the waters near Guam.

Trump added he would like to “de-nuke” the world before appearing to say that nuclear proliferation was the greatest threat facing nations.

“I would like to de-nuke the world,” Trump said. “I know that President Obama said that global warming is the biggest threat. I totally disagree. I say that it's a simple one. Nuclear is our greatest threat worldwide. Not even a question.”

Jeff(2 likes)I think he is just stating the obvious.  At least he is letting his position be clearly known.  Unlike previous appeasment or ignoring the problem policies of Clinton and Obama.  Apparently this new "bombshell" report from a couple of days ago from the DIA was actually released in 2013 and Obama chose to ignore it.  Trump is called "bombastic" by the left and "how un-presidential" it is to make threats.  So I guess that makes Obama's ignoring an extremely dangerous situation "presidential".  Let's take a poll of the American people to see what they consider more predidential:  ignoring the serious problem or stating the consquences of aggressive action by N Korea?
@OtisamsoniteEliminate ALL the North Koreans if Un does anything.
