Trump threatens North Korea with 'fire and fury'

President Trump, facing a growing nuclear threat from North Korea, warned the country on Tuesday against any new provocations and issued his own threat. "North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States” Trump told reporters.

The comments came after a report in the Washington Post citing a U.S. intelligence assessment that North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can be affixed to missiles, greatly expanding the country’s range and power.
Trump: "North Korea best not make any more threats to the U.S. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen."

Trump’s rhetoric in some ways mirrors his North Korean counterpart’s.
