“Get your acts together” or face extraordinary “trouble”, Trump tells North Korea

N'KOREA: Trump tones down on harsh rhetoric but warns of US power

Sensing that his “fire and fury” rage at North Korea may not have struck the right chord, President Donald Trump has fired another warning at Kim Jong-Un’s government to “get their acts together” or face extraordinary “trouble”.

Sensing that his earlier threat was too mild, Trump, in the latest US salvo in an escalating exchange of threats between the nuclear-armed nations said; “Maybe that statement wasn’t tough enough”.

Flanked by Vice President Mike Pence, Trump accused his predecessors of insufficient action, saying it was time somebody stood up to the pariah nation led by Kim.

He said; “North Korea better get their act together, or they are going to be in trouble like few nations have ever been in trouble”.

The president insisted the North had been “getting away with a tragedy that can’t be allowed”.

24-hours ago, North Korea described Trump’s “fire and fury” threat should an American territory be targeted or attacked by Pyongyang as a “load of nonsense”.

Gen. Kim Rak Gyom, commander of the Strategic Force of the North Korean People’s Army, said in a statement said that Trump’s comments fail to grasp the ongoing situation, calling the U.S. president a “guy bereft of reason” and saying he is “extremely getting on the nerves” of the country’s army.
