Trump: U.S. Is 'Locked and Loaded' to Take on North Korea

Trump: U.S. Is 'Locked and Loaded' to Take on North Korea Read Transcript


JENNA BROWDER: President Trump is stepping up his rhetoric

toward North Korea, warning its leader against his threat

to attack the US territory of Guam.

DONALD TRUMP (ON TV): Let's see what he does with Guam.

If he does something in Guam, it will

be an event the likes of which nobody has seen before, what

will happen in North Korea.

He will see.

REPORTER (ON TV): Is that a dare?

DONALD TRUMP (ON TV): It's not a dare.

It's a statement.

He's not going to go around threatening Guam.

And he's not going to threaten the United States.

And he's not going to threaten Japan.

And he's not going to threaten South Korea.

JENNA BROWDER: The President addressed reporters Thursday

at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

DONALD TRUMP (ON TV): He has disrespected our country

greatly.

He has said things that are horrific.

And with me, he's not getting away with it.

He got away with it for a long time

between him and his family.

He's not getting away with it.

This is a whole new ballgame.

JENNA BROWDER: And outside on the front steps,

responding to concerns that his fire and fury

threat was too inflammatory, Trump

said maybe he should have been even stronger.

DONALD TRUMP (ON TV): Frankly the people

that were questioning that statement, "was it too tough?"

Maybe it wasn't tough enough.

JENNA BROWDER: He is not backing down.

But he's also not saying, what's next?

One reporter asked about a preemptive strike.

Trump said he wouldn't discuss his plans.

DONALD TRUMP (ON TV): We don't talk about that.

I never do.

JENNA BROWDER: On the ground in North Korea,

marching in the streets in support of striking Guam.

And in New Jersey, the President had a final warning.

DONALD TRUMP (ON TV): I will tell you this.

North Korea better get their act together

or they are going to be in trouble like few nations ever

have been in trouble in this world.

OK?

JENNA BROWDER: Trump is, again, making his position clear.

And while the United States is committed to diplomacy,

the world waits to see if North Korea will act on its threat.

Reporting in Washington.

Jenna Browder, CBN News.
