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.
