Trump: If North Korea Does Anything to Any American Territory, They Will Regret It

“What I said is what I mean,” Trump told reporters about his ‘locked and loaded’ comments.

President Trump said that if North Korea does anything “with respect to Guam or any place else that’s an American territory or an American ally, he will truly regret it and he will regret it fast,” on Wednesday.

Trump was participating in workforce and apprenticeship discussion in Bedminster, N.J., and after Trump had concluded his remarks, he allowed reporters to ask questions.

One reporter asked Trump to clarify what he meant by saying military solutions are “locked and loaded,” as it relates to North Korea.

“I think it’s pretty obvious. We are looking at that very carefully, and I hope that they are going to fully understand the gravity of what I said, and what I said is what I mean,” Trump responded. “So hopefully they’ll understand, Peter, exactly what I said and the meaning of those words. Those words are very, very easy to understand.”
