Trump takes Kim to the brink: America and North Korea are locked in extraordinary standoff after US president vows ‘fire and fury’

The world is holding its breath today amid fears the crisis over North Korea could spiral in to global war after Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un made unprecedented threats to trade devastating missile strikes.
Pyongyang’s volatile dictator warned he was ‘carefully examining’ plans to make ‘an enveloping fire’ around the US island of Guam which is home to about 163,000 people and a sprawling American military base.
It came after US President Donald Trump’s apocalyptic warning that North Korea faces ‘fire and fury like the world has never seen’ over its nuclear program.
America then released images of supersonic bombers flying over the Korean peninsula while American airmen in Guam have said they are ready to ‘fight tonight’. The North said the training mission ‘proves that the U.S. imperialists are nuclear war maniacs’.
Kim, who boasts that his intercontinental rockets can reach the west coast of America, has warned the US that it would ‘pay dearly’ for UN sanctions it successfully imposed over the weekend, which were backed by China and Russia.
