Nobody — Including the Trump Admin — Knows What America’s North Korea Policy Is
(ANTIMEDIA) — A day after President Donald Trump warned that the military would unleash “fire and fury” on North Korea if it continued to threaten the United States, two top Trump administration officials delivered conflicting messages regarding the Hermit Kingdom on Wednesday.
“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,” Trump said Tuesday, responding to a reporter’s question while vacationing at his Bedminster golf club in New Jersey. “They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
In response, Pyongyang did exactly what the president warned against. Calling the island territory of Guam “the United States’ outpost and starting base for invasion,” North Korea’s state media reported late on Tuesday that the country’s military is “carefully examining the operational plan for making an enveloping fire at the areas around Guam.”
While tiny at only 30 miles long and four miles wide at its narrowest, Guam is a highly strategic territory for the U.S. in the Pacific.
