President Donald J. Trump used his Twitter account to send a very clear message to North Korea and its rogue leader, Kim Jong Un, on Friday.
In the tweet, he said the United States military, which is the most powerful in the world, is ready to strike if necessary.
The tweet reads: “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!”
The president sent out the tweet on the heels of a report wherein China says it will protect North Korea and the Kim regime if the U.S. attacks first. China made the statement through its state-run news agency.
Meanwhile, Defense Sec. James Mattis told reporters on Thursday that he will not reveal his plans to the enemy, but emphasized the United States military stands ready.
The tensions between the United States and North Korea continue to mount as Kim Jong Un warns that he will fire missiles at the island of Guam.
The president’s tweet on Friday morning follows a series of strong-worded warnings he’s sent to North Korea this week, including the “fire and fury” comment.
The president has been praised by some in the media for taking a strong position and sending a clear message that America will not be a victim of a nuclear attack by North Korea, and that the U.S. will protect its allies. Others, including Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), believe the president’s rhetoric is too strong and unnecessary.
DML NEWS launched a poll on Friday morning asking readers if America should fire the first shot at North Korea. So far, more than 70% of respondents state the U.S. should not take a preemptive strike. The poll is available by clicking here.
