President Trump addressed reporters in a press conference today wherein he discussed, and further emphasized, his stance on North Korea in the current moment.
The President referenced his “fire and fury” comment prior to his full statement, stating:
“My critics are only saying that because it’s me, if somebody else uttered the exact same words that I uttered, they’d say, ‘what a great statement, what a wonderful statement,’ but I will tell you, we have tens of millions of people in this country that are so happy with what I’m saying because they’re saying, ‘finally we have a president that’s sticking up for our nation, and frankly, sticking up for our friends and our allies.”
Despite numerous attempts to placate the North Korean dictator and numerous attempts to silence his aggression, Kim Jong-Un persists with his frightening language. The President addressed this today by stating:
“And [Kim Jong-Un] will not get away with what he’s doing, believe me. And if he utters one threat, in the form of an overt threat, which by the way, he’s been uttering for years, and his family has been uttering for years, or if he 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.”
