Donald Trump: North Korea should be 'very, very nervous'

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert

The President's tweets came hours after he warned North Korea the US would act with "fire and fury" like the world hasn't seen before after it threatened a missile strike on a US Pacific territory of Guam.

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States", Mr Trump told reporters in remarks aired on television and broadcast around the globe. And they should be very nervous.

President Donald Trump's doubling down on his "fire and fury" comment is only encouraging Pyongyang to stay on its current nuclear weapons "course", says an arms control expert.

Trump stated at his New Jersey golf club. "Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world!"

Because of North Korea, the USA will increase its military budget by "many billions" of dollars, including expenditures on missile defense, Trump said on Thursday.

"What they've been doing, what they've been getting away with, is a tragedy and it can't be allowed", he said.

North Korea's state run KCNA news agency said that the country's army will complete the plans in mid-August for the firing of four missiles, citing General Kim Rak Gyom, commander of the Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army.

Despite worldwide condemnations seen in new and stronger sanctions unanimously adopted Sunday (Seoul time) by the U.N. Security Council, the communist regime says it will continue to stage missile launches, this time targeting the USA -controlled island of Guam in the Pacific, home to several US military units.

Cops agree with Trump: more needed
Tuesday afternoon, Trump met with health officials and members of his administration to receive an update on the crisis. Williams told MetroNews Wednesday he was "perplexed" about Trump's response earlier this week, and told U.S.

Japan and South Korea vowed a strong reaction if thetr North were to go through with the plan. Trump's threats, Gorka said, were deadly serious.

In a message to the public, Guam's Governor Eddie Baza Calvo said there was now "no threat" to the U.S. territory and the Marianas archipelago, but it was "prepared for any eventuality".

The leader of the country, Kim Jong-un, has promised to continue the tests, drawing condemnation from the United States and its regional allies, South Korea and Japan. "And I think China will do a lot more".

Trump spoke after having a national security briefing with Vice President Mike Pence, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

Earlier that day, a Defense Intelligence Agency report concluded North Korea is now capable of miniaturizing a nuclear warhead, stoking fears the country could soon be able to mount one on an ICBM capable of reaching the US mainland.

"I think China can do a lot more, yes, China can", Trump said, predicting it will do more in the future. It's not going to continue like that. "We never do. I don't talk about it", Trump told reporters.

"We hope all relevant parties speak cautiously and move prudently, stop provoking each other, avoid further escalating the situation and strive to return to the correct track of dialogue and negotiations as soon as possible", the Foreign Ministry said. The report did not mention any threat of the use of nuclear missiles near Guam.

President Trump assured Wednesday that the United States has a nice nuclear arsenal - and it would be a shame if something happened with it.
