As Trump flies supersonic B-1B bombers from threatened island of Guam,
Fresh tensions between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un have raised fears of a devastating nuclear war between the US and North Korea.
The US military this morning released pictures of supersonic B-1B bombers flying from Guam after North Korea threatened to strike an American airbase on the remote Pacific island.
Two US Air Force B-1B jets took part in 10-hour mission over the Korean peninsula just hours before Kim Jong-un revealed his plans.
On Monday, Trump warned any threat to America would be met with “fire and fury”.
US Secretary of State: Trump is using ‘language Kim Jong-un will understand’
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Trump is sending a strong message to North Korea “in a language Kim Jong-un would understand”.
He told reporters the North Korean leader does not understand diplomatic language.
Tillerson said while he doesn’t believe North Korea poses an imminent threat, Trump wanted to deliver message that would avoid any miscalculation in Pyongyang.
“Americans should sleep well at night,” he said.
