Donald Trump Just Received A Disturbing Message From North Korea

The Korean peninsula has been fraught with tensions for decades, and that tension rises to a fever pitch at certain times. Like now. A statement from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has touted the country’s intercontinental ballistic missile capabilities, but that has confusingly been tempered by signals that the country is willing to engage in talks with President-elect Donald Trump.

As CNN reports, the missile talk came during Un’s New Year’s address to the nation, in which he hinted that North Korea was capable of launching a nuclear weapon that could reach any target - even US soil - “at any time.” Trump took to his favorite medium to respond to the veiled threat.

"North Korea just stated that it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the US. It won't happen!" Trump tweeted.

Trump wasn’t the only one to respond, as neighboring South Korea also didn’t take too kindly to Un’s remarks.

"If North Korea disregards our warning and launches an ICBM, it will face more powerful and thorough sanctions and pressure by the international community," said Moon Sang-gyun, a spokesman for the South Korean Defense Ministry.
