Trump issued a new threat against North Korea Friday morning saying the country's military is 'locked and loaded'.

Bedminster - President Donald Trump on Friday issued fresh threats of swift and forceful retaliation against nuclear North Korea, declaring the USA military "locked and loaded" and warning that the communist country's leader "will regret it fast" if he takes any action against United States territories or allies.

"I want to reassure the people of Guam that now there is no threat to our island or the Marianas", he said.

As a practical matter, Mr. Trump's tweets do not necessarily indicate a specific change in military readiness or any imminent action.

Guam, a part of the Mariana Islands, is 2,100 miles away from the Korean Peninsula and home to Andersen Air Force Base and Naval Base Guam.

"What I would say here ladies and gentleman, my portfolio, my mission, my responsibility is to have military options should they be needed", he said.

The North Korean military said it could carry out a pre-emptive strike if there were signs of an American provocation.

The United States is likely to "seriously consider" shooting down any North Korean missiles tests aimed at the waters around the USA territory of Guam, but experts warn the technology isn't guaranteed to work. Trump responded by vowing to rain down "fire and fury" if challenged.

Speaking in Bristol, Mr Corbyn said: "We can not play fast and loose with nuclear weapons and nuclear threats because do you know what - a nuclear explosion doesn't stop at national borders, it doesn't stop at the vicinity where the bomb drops". "Our readiness, we are ready". Guam elects a delegate to the U.S. House, but that delegate isn't allowed to vote on a bill's final passage.


The U.S. military has said it plans to increase its presence on Guam and will move thousands of U.S. Marines now stationed in Japan to the island between 2024 and 2028.

The US deploys its Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (Thaad) system around Guam.

"Let's see what he does with Guam", Trump said of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un from his golf club in Bedminster, N.J.

The full statement: "North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States".

Theresa May, who is still on holiday, is yet to comment on the growing crisis between North Korea and the US.

And the president warned the United States would strongly retaliate against any attack on Guam.

Japan could legally intercept a North Korean missile headed towards Guam, Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera said on Thursday in remarks reported by Kyodo news service.

There's a sense of patriotism among those who cite the island's history of Guam residents serving in the USA military.
