When will President Trump learn to stay off twitter? Its looking as though some recent tweets of his in regards to North Korea may have gotten him into a bit of hot water.

 

North Korea’s vice foreign minister Han Song Ryol told The Associated Press on Friday, that if the U.S should show any signs of reckless military action that Pyongyang is ready and willing to launch pre-emptive strikes of its own. As it is reported the U.S. is prepared to pre-emptively strike North Korea if it decides to test a nuclear weapon.

He added that North Korea plans to continue stockpiling even more nuclear warheads, and continue to improve upon the country’s nuclear program. As Trump continues to weigh his options on a very public platform, Han said that North Korea would in no way just stand by if they believed Trump would in fact follow through on his threats. Han said:

“We’ve got a powerful nuclear deterrent already in our hands, and we certainly will not keep our arms crossed in the face of a U.S. pre-emptive strike. Whatever comes from the U.S., we will cope with it. We are fully prepared to handle it.”

These comments from the North Korean government are just part of the escalated tensions between North Korea and the U.S that have become more prominent since Trump took office. Trump has leaned on China, both publicly on twitter and in private to help him out, and take on a larger role in this situation.

Han called the new administration “more vicious and more aggressive” than the Obama administration. Han also stated that North Korea is not the problem here, inferring that Trump is the root of all the problems.

“Trump is always making provocations with his aggressive words. It’s not North Korea but the U.S. and Trump that makes trouble.”

Hopefully Trump can put his twitter fingers away for a few minutes and think about what the repercussions could be for America if North Korea starts to take his online threats more seriously.
