President Donald Trump answered questions from the press at a security briefing Thursday. Trump clarified his “fire and fury” comments on North Korea, saying America’s allies are safe but North Korea will face the worst fate of any country if they don’t change.


He also said his earlier comments might not have been tough enough.

The president also took the opportunity to reiterate his displeasure with China regarding its influence with North Korea not being strong enough. Trump expressed how unfair he thinks the trade relationship America has with China, wielding the comments as an apparent stick toward China if North Korea isn’t reined in.
