The president is escalating the rhetoric toward the communist dictatorship.
President Trump, speaking with reporters outside his golf club in Bedminster, NJ, said that his statement threatening “fire and fury” on North Korea could have gone further.
“Was it too tough? Maybe it wasn’t tough enough,” he said.
“It’s about time that somebody stuck up for the people of this country and for the people of other countries,” Trump added. “If anything, that statement may not be tough enough.”
Asked about the possibility of a pre-emptive strike, the president declined to comment. “But I can tell you, what they’ve been doing, and what they’ve been getting away with is a tragedy, and it can’t be allowed,” the president said.
