Donald Trump warns North Korea that USA military is 'locked and loaded'

Donald Trump warns North Korea that USA military is 'locked and loaded'

President Trump took to Twitter early Friday issuing yet another stark warning to North Korea that the United States' military was "locked and loaded", and urged the rogue regime's dictator to "find another path".

Thursday, Trump warned North Korea again not to strike Guam, a major military hub and home to USA bombers, saying his earlier threat to unleash "fire and fury" on Pyongyang if it launched an attack may not have been tough enough.

Trump's comments are notably more aggressive than the messaging from many in his administration, including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary James Mattis, who have said they will continue to pursue diplomatic talks rather than military action.

Earlier this week, Trump reacted to reports that North Korea had produced a compact nuclear warhead and warned the country they "will be met with fire and fury" if they carry out an attack.

He also said the USA military backed his comments 100 per cent.

The U.S. and South Korea are due to start joint military exercises from August 21, while Japanese and U.S. military personnel have begun drills on Japan's northern island of Hokkaido that run through August 28. Trump then told reporters on Thursday that his previous threats may not have been "tough enough".

The message comes on the heels of a Friday statement from North Korea's state-run media accusing the president of pushing the Korean peninsula to the "brink of a nuclear war".

Asked if the United States was ready if North Korea made a hostile act, he said: "We are ready". However, if even one missile gets through, Pyongyang will have the advantage.
