Washington, September 8 (RHC)-- U.S. President Donald Trump has said that a U.S. military strike against North Korea would be “a very sad day for North Korea.” Speaking at a news conference in the White House in Washington, DC, on Thursday, Trump said a military action against Pyongyang is still on the table while said that “nothing’s inevitable.”
Trump went on to say: “I would prefer not going the route of the military, but it's something certainly that could happen. Our military has never been stronger.” Trump stated since his inauguration he has increased military spending, saying that “each day, new equipment is delivered, new and beautiful equipment, the best in the world, the best anywhere in the world by far. Hopefully, we're not going to have to use it on North Korea.”
Trump told Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Sunday that the U.S. is ready to use the “full range” of capabilities, including nuclear arsenal, at its disposal in dealing with North Korea, after the country conducted a test of a hydrogen bomb that could be placed on an intercontinental ballistic missile.
In his earlier remarks, Trump warned that North Korea would face “fire and fury” should it continue to "threaten" the United States.
