Donald Trump took rising tensions with North Korea to a new level on Tuesday when he promised to rain down “fire and fury” if Kim Jong Un doesn’t bow down and kiss his tangerine ass. The North Korean leader wasted no time responding to Trump’s threats and now Guam may bear the brunt of his wrath.
North Korea is considering a plan to fire missiles at Guam, state media said,” Reuters reports. “A spokesman for North Korea’s military told KCNA that it would carry out a pre-emptive operation if there were signs of U.S. provocation.”
In addition to Guam being a U.S. territory with a population of 162,000 people, it is also home to 4000 U.S. service members stationed at Andersen Air Force Base. And now, every single one of those lives are in danger because Trump can’t keep his big mouth shut.
When news broke that North Korea has nuclear weapons that may be able to reach the United States, Trump apparently decided that the best way to respond was to threaten Kim Jong Un with “fire and fury.” Because, why not?
“He has been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as I said they will be met with fire, fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before,” Trump said on Tuesday.
This new round of threats comes just one day after Ri Yong Ho, North Korea’s foreign minister, reportedly said that the country “is ready to teach the U.S. a severe lesson with its nuclear strategic force.”
On Tuesday night, North Korea released the following statement, warning the U.S. to “stop its reckless military provocation,” or else.
