President Donald Trump on Wednesday issued a not-so-thinly veiled warning to North Korea via Twitter, suggesting the regime — which just announced its military was mulling a preemptive attack on Guam — ought to tread lightly, because America’s nuclear arsenal was “more powerful” than it’s been.

Specifically, he tweeted: “My first order as president was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal. It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before.”

He followed with this: “…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!”

The tweets came after North Korea sent out a message through state-run media that it was considerating an attack on Guam, an American territory.

North Korea threatened an attack on Guam, a U.S. territory.

From CNN:

North Korea’s military is “examining the operational plan” to strike areas around the US territory of Guam with medium-to-long-range strategic ballistic missiles, state-run news agency KCNA said early Wednesday local time.

Specifically, the statement mentioned a potential strike on Andersen Air Force Base designed “to send a serious warning signal to the US.”

The base is one of two on the Pacific island, which are the closest bases on US soil to North Korea, and represent the westernmost tip of the country’s military might.
