Trump won't tolerate North Korea disrespecting America

Posted: Updated:

President Donald Trump says he's no longer going to allow North Korea to disrespect America. And if Pyongyang touches Guam - it's game over.

President Trump says he needs to get *tougher* with North Korea. The president promising to bring "fire and fury" on North Korea if it makes any more threats on the United States. "The people who were questioning that statement, was it too tough?  Maybe it wasn't tough enough," he said.

North Korea's military says the plan is in response to President Trump who promised "fire and fury" for the communist nation if it continued to threaten America. "Let's see what he does with Guam," he said. He does something in Guam, it will be an event the likes of which nobody has seen before, what will happen in North Korea."

The people of Guam are now the ones in the literal crosshairs of North Korea's weapons. Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo stated, "President Trump needs to tone down the rhetoric and recognize that words have consequences." She added, "Guam is not a bargaining chip."

Guamanians today also chiming in -- some fed up. Rita Fejeran said, "Well, it sucks. That President Trump needs to keep his mouth shut. Seems like he's causing more problems than good so they should try to negotiate so we can deal with this peacefully."

Marilyn Paguio added, "It's really pretty frightening and I'm just concerned and hopefully for the best everything goes well."  Sid Mostales shared, "Hopefully nothing happens. That's what I want."

The governor has not raised the threat level - but homeland security officials say residents should make a plan - just in case. Japan, which is one of America's closest Asian allies, responded to the threat from North Korea to say any attack on US citizens would threaten its own existence and says it will shoot down North Korean missiles flying over Japanese airspace.
