A menacing message from Kim Jong Un on Friday. The North Korea leader vowing to make Donald Trump pay for threatening to destroy his country at the UN. In a rare direct statement to state media, Kim called Trump mentally deranged, threatening to tame him with fire and saying he's considering quote, the highest level of countermeasure in history.
That may sound like a typically vague threat, but claims of what it could mean are chilling. The North's Foreign Minister apparently suggesting that Pyongyang could hit back with a hydrogen bomb rocket test over the Pacific. North Korea conducted its sixth and largest nuclear test earlier this month as it presses ahead with plans to build an atomic weapon that could hit the United States.
Earlier in the week, Trump said he would destroy North Korea if it attacked the US or its allies, but on Thursday he seemed to change tact, signing an executive order that slaps even more sanctions on Pyongyang.
