Trump: Kim will 'truly regret' an attack on Guam
11 August 2017 world-news
President Trump has said that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will “truly regret” any action he takes against Guam.
He told reporters: “I hope that they are going to fully understand the gravity of what I said, and what I said is what I mean.
“Those words are very easy to understand.”
Mr Trump was speaking at his Bedminster golf resort in New Jersey, where he is on holiday.
Hours earlier the President tweeted that military solutions were “locked and loaded” should North Korea “act unwisely”.
But German Chancellor Angela Merkel urged both sides to tone down their tough talk.
She said: “I don’t see a military solution and I don’t think it’s called for.
“I think escalating the rhetoric is the wrong answer.”
