Earlier in the week, after it was reported by US intelligence that North Korea was now able to produce a miniaturized nuclear warhead deliverable by an intercontinental ballistic missile, Donald Trump threatened that North Korea faced..
“retaliation with fire and fury unlike any the world has seen before”
He went on to say that if Kim Jong Un continued to be "threatening" the country of North Korea would...
"be met with fire, fury and frankly, power, the likes of which this world has never seen before,"
Trump has all the best words the likes of which this world has never seen before.

Tough guy Trump then went on to blame previous Democratic Presidents for the present troubles in North Korea. He claimed President Bill Clinton was “weak and ineffective”, while President Barack Obama “didn’t even want to talk about it,”.
