Earlier in the day Thursday, the liberal mainstream media attempted to suggest the Trump administration is sending mixed messages about North Korea.
President Donald Trump put that notion to bed with two strong statements about the consequences if Kim Jong-un decides to attack the U.S. or its allies. He provided no specifics, but made it clear those consequences would be dire.
First, at a press gaggle held at his golf course in Bedminster, N.J., he said:
f North Korea does anything in terms of even thinking about attack of anybody that we love or we represent or our allies or us, they can be very, very nervous. I’ll tell you what, and they should be very nervous, because things will happen to them like they never thought possible. Okay? He’s been pushing the world around for a long time.
Later, at a separate event, the president added:
Let’s see what he does with Guam. He does something in Guam, it will be an event the likes of which nobody’s seen before—will happen in North Korea … It’s not a dare, it’s a statement. It has nothing to do with a dare—it’s a statement. He’s not going to go around threatening Guam, and he’s not going to threaten the United States, and he’s not going to threaten Japan, and he’s not going to threaten South Korea.
The president said he had a great deal of respect for China and Russia and their joining in a unanimous United Nations Security Council sanctions vote. But, he also believes there is much more China could do to rein in Kim and North Korea.
Ultimately, he said, North Korea “better get their act together” or it will be “in trouble like few nations ever have been in trouble in this world.”
