Later Tuesday, President Donald Trump declared that North Korea would be “met with fire and fury like the world has never seen” if it continued threatening against the US.

North Korea’s Korean People’s Army responded saying the “air pirates of Guam” were in the skies above South Korea “simulating an actual war” — and that they needed to retaliate. The statement, according to the state-run Korean Central News Agency, called the US territory the “the outpost and beachhead for invading” North Korea and said it would make “an enveloping fire” around Guam.
