President Trump took to Twitter early Wednesday to note the United States’ nuclear arsenal is “stronger than ever before,” hours after issuing a harsh warning that North Korea would face "fire and fury" if it continued to provoke America.
“My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal. It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before,” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. “Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world!”
Trump’s tweets come after his boldly chilling response to reports that North Korea has produced a compact nuclear warhead capable of topping missiles that could reach half of the United States.
