Yesterday, President Trump threatened the North Korean leader with “fire and fury”, and today Secretary of Defense James Mattis put Kim Jong-un on notice this way:
Mattis stmt: North Korea "should cease any consideration of actions that will lead to the end of the regime and destruction of its people"
