Trump has ‘unchecked authority’ to order a nuclear attack

PRESS CONFERENCE - President Trump on North Korea: ‘ Fire and Fury ’ Threat May Not Have Gone Far Enough .

U.S. President Donald Trump ’s threat to unleash “ fire and fury ” upon North Korea “wasn’t tough enough ,” he said on Trump ’s chilling remarks came in response to North Korea’s statement on Thursday that an operational plan aiming at waters near Guam will be completed by mid-August.

"If North Korea does anything in terms of even thinking about an attack on anybody that we love or represent, or our allies or us, they should be very, very nervous."

President Trump said Kim Jong Un has been "pushing the world around for a long time," and warned that things will "happen to them like they never thought possible".

He also added that he thinks China can do more to pressure Pyongyang to end its nuclear weapons programme.

He said: "I have great respect for China and Russia and what they did on sanctions... I think China can do a lot more, yes, and I think China will do a lot more."

He sent a reassuring message to the US, saying: "The people of our country are safe, our allies are safe, and I will tell you this: North Korea better get their act together, or they're gonna be in trouble like few nations have ever been in trouble in this world."

The President's comments come after North Korea threatened the US by saying it would have a fully developed plan for striking Guam with intermediate range missiles by mid-August.

President Donald Trump says his " fire and fury " statement on North Korea may not have been tough enough . The remarks continue a series of aggressive exchanges between Trump and the North Korean regime in rhetoric more forceful than U.S. presidents typically use.

McMaster prior to speaking with press and was joined during public remarks by Vice President

Slideshow: The daily life of Kim Jong Un (Business Insider)

<p> North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has as been the source of much international scrutiny.</p><p> Lately, he's been in the news because of his regime's <a href= growing nuclear weapons capabilities and the case of American student Otto Warmbier, who died just days after he was released from a DPRK prison.

Information about life inside "Hermit Kingdom" is somewhat scarce, as are details about the daily routine of the country's self-styled "Supreme Leader."

However, some information has slipped through.

In 2016, North Korea scored a 28.6 on the Global Hunger Index, meaning that the situation in the country is in "serious" trouble - an "extremely alarming" food situation would be denoted by a score of over 50. The World Food Programme has reported that 70% of the country's 25.1 million population is "food insecure" and chronic malnutrition is endemic.

One thing is clear to see: Kim Jong Un's life of private islands, imported liquor, and wealth is worlds apart from the lives of the people he rules.
