North Korea: Trump Says He Is Prepared To Take ‘Devastating’ Military Action To End Tensions

 Donald Trump says that the US is ready with a “military option” to end the escalating crisis with North Korea that would be devastating for Pyongyang.

“We are totally prepared for the second option, not a preferred option,” Mr Trump said at a White House news conference alongside Spain’s prime minister. “But if we take that option, it will be devastating, I can tell you that, devastating for North Korea. That’s called the military option. If we have to take it, we will.”

The President proceeded to say that North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho – who said over the weekend that it was “inevitable” that North Korean rockets would hit the US mainland – was acting “very badly, saying things that should never be said.”                       (The Independent)
