President Trump touched down in South Korea Tuesday, warning North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un of the “unparalleled strength” of the United States military and urging the despot to “come to the table” and “make a deal.”
According to Fox News, the President made the stark warning while addressing reporters during a joint press conference with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, admonishing Kim to “do the right thing.”
“I believe it makes sense for North Korea to do the right thing,” Trump told the journalists. “I think we are showing great strength. Unparalleled strength. We have three aircraft carriers positioned. A nuclear submarine. We hope to god we never have to use. I hope it makes sense to have North Korea to come to the table. I do see certain movement, yes.”
The President’s comments come just days after Kim Jong Un directly threatened the Commander-in-Chief, warning the “lunatic” in the White House that he would continue to test nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles.
“No one can predict when the lunatic old man of the White House, lost to senses, will start a nuclear war against [North Korea],” said the state-run news agency earlier this week. “The U.S. should not expect us to make any change.”
