Donald Trump issues chilling threat to Kim Jong-un after warnings North Korea is set to test missile that can hit US

The Sun Politics 7 months ago

DONALD Trump has chillingly threatened North Korea – insisting “only one thing will work” when dealing with the rogue state.

The Republican said the North continues to make “fools out of US negotiators” as America has been trying to negotiate with the rogue state for “25 years”.

The US President didn’t make clear what he was referring to on Twitter.

But his comments come weeks after North Korea prepared to test a long-range missile which experts feared could reach the west coast of the United States.

An influential Russian politician Anton Morozov made the warning after visiting Pyongyang this week, RIA news agency reports.

A submarine missile is paraded across the Kim Il Sung Square during a military parade, in Pyongyang, North Korea to celebrate the 105th birth anniversary of Kim Il Sung, the country's late founder

Mr Morozov said: “They are preparing for new tests of a long-range missile.

“They even gave us mathematical calculations that they believe prove that their missile can hit the west coast of the United States.

“As far as we understand, they intend to launch one more long-range missile in the near future.

“And in general, their mood is rather belligerent.”

Fears are growing North Korea could test a nuke or launch a ballistic missile next Tuesday to mark the founding of its governing communist party.

North Korea often tests nukes or rockets on key state anniversaries.

This includes the birthdays of those in the ruling Kim dynasty.

Its most recent nuclear detonation last month triggered an artificial earthquake six times larger than in any previous test.

Leading the international condemnation, US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis vowed to meet any threat to America with "a massive military response".

North Korea claimed it has developed a sophisticated 120 kiloton hydrogen bomb small enough to be carried on an intercontinental missile.

A new report says Kim Jong-un's deadly nuke arsenal has the ability to wreak apocalyptic havoc on neighbours South Korea and Japan as well as the United States.

Four million people could die within MINUTES of launching a nuclear strike, shock research has found.
