Trump says North Korea will be met with ‘fire and fury like the world has never seen’ if it threatens U.S.

President Donald Trump delivered his fiercest warning yet to North Korea this afternoon.

Trump told the country’s leader, Kim Jong-Un, that additional threats of violence against the U.S. ‘will be met with fire and the fury like the world has never seen.’

‘He has been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as I said they will be met with the fire and fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before,’ Trump added in remarks at the top of an unrelated meeting.

    When Trump makes threatening statements like that you know he means business and that he is serious now when Justin makes statements of that nature it has an entirely different meaning.

      Trump doesn’t talk softly and he carries a big stick.

        Thank goodness he doesn’t lisp…Just saying if you know what I mean.

    I hope he reminds China that they will be on the targeting list too if their “pet” does anything stupid.

    I wonder to what extent seeing that Trump occupies the office but remains powerless thanks to the mounted coup against him emboldens nutjobs like Fatty to push the envelop. When the situation is clear to us, it must also be clear to foreign powers.

      To be honest, I don’t think fatty is that smart. What sort of idiot openly threatens to nuke the US? Smart people who have acquired nuclear weapons tend to do it on the quite and when they have them only hint that they might, rather than tell everyone. I don’t know what Fatty’s end game plan is. It’s possible that this is a distraction because he is losing his grip on the country, and it’s all for domestic consumption. I seriously can’t come up with a logical geo political reason why this is going on.

      • Alain

        Having given it some more thought, I suspect you are correct. Keep in mind that both Clinton and Obama were soft on N. Korea, and if I am not mistaken even Bush gave in to the blackmail. Perhaps he thinks the game will continue as before not being smart enough to know there is a big difference now.

    Be great in act, as you have been in thought;
    Let not the world see fear and sad distrust
    Govern the motion of a kingly eye:
    Be stirring as the time; be fire with fire;
    Threaten the threatener and outface the brow
    Of bragging horror:

    Time to stock up on ammo and non-perishables, perhaps. Oh, and a big underground bunker and lots of fuel stores for generators and the like would come in handy about now too….

    Trudeau is to blame for this. I encourage trump to make a preemptive strike on Ottawa.

    • Alain

      First ensure short-pants is there and not elsewhere doing selfies.

  • PaulW

    Trump needs to give the little dictator a face-saving way out: let him rave about how evil America is and that he won the showdown, but shut down the nuke program now and permanently, and let it be continually monitored. If Kim is backed into a corner though, it won’t be good.

  • ontario john

    And of course the reaction from CNN, John McCain, and the Democrats is, Trump has gone insane. WERE ALL GOING TO DIE!!

      They had a nervous breakdown when Reagan called the Soviet Union evil. There should be a limit on the number of nervous breakdowns one is allowed.

    Tired of rhetoric, shit or get off the pot.

    It might be a good time to buy some gold.

    • Alain

      Silver also works if you find gold too pricey.

    The Yanks know exactly where this little A-Hole is hiding his toys. They could sling a bunker buster in there at the drop of a hat. They just don’t want to piss off the Chinese — Yet.

  • deplorabledave

    Works for me.

  • Brett_McS

    The Chinese are losing out to SE Asian competitors (Thailand, Vietnam etc) and the government’s determination to control everything is damping their economy. The RMB was set to become a major player, but it is dropping and is now less important than the Loonie. They could be going the way of Japan, and unlike in the stable Japan that is going to be a real problem for them. Stirring up the US by supporting the NoKos isn’t going to be a priority.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    There is no graceful way out. The question is not whether Trump will resort to force, but when – and how.

  • If Vancouver was ever destroyed by Kim, how badly would that suck for Trudeau?

  • Ho Hum

    Trump is boxing himself into a corner with such inflammatory rhetoric. I know he likes to “sound tough” but when you are president of the USA you don’t publicly threaten nuclear with a nuclear power so casually. N Korea is not going to stop testing it’s missiles now that it is so close to their objective. If Trump doesn’t respond militarily he will appear weak and anything his says in the future will be dismissed as bullshit bluster. If Trump does respond militarily he will ignite a war that could claim over a million S Korean’s and 10,000’s of Americans. If this happens he will be finished in fact I could see him being force-ably removed from the Whitehouse.

    This is really quite scary. Donald (Fatboy) Trump squaring up to King Jong-Fatboy.
    Can’t see a good outcome unless the Chinese jump on the little slitty-eyed fatboy
