Trump follows up North Korea threats with Twitter nuclear brag

President Trump has followed up his ‘fire and fury’ warning to North Korea with a brag on Twitter about the United States’ nuclear arsenal.

Trump’s tweets came after Pyongyang said it was considering plans for a missile strike on the US Pacific territory of Guam.



The US secretary of states played down the rhetoric.


Guam is home to about 163,000 people and a US military base that includes a submarine squadron.

The two B-1B bombers that flew over the Korean Peninsula in a recent show of force had taken off from Guam.
