Vastavam web: US President Donald Trump says Washington is “totally prepared” to take a “devastating” military action against Pyongyang as rhetoric heats up between the two countries following the recent spate of tit-for-tat barbs. “We are totally prepared for the second option, not a preferred option,” Trump said at a White House news conference on Tuesday, referring to military force. “But if we take that option, it will be devastating, I can tell you that, devastating for North Korea. That’s called the military option. If we have to take it, we will.” “He’s acting very badly,” Trump said of North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un. “He’s saying things that should never ever be said.” The US president also said that the North Korean crisis could have been dealt with in the past, blaming “past administrations” for not taking action.
