President Trump escalated threats against North Korea Friday morning, tweeting that military solutions are “locked and loaded.”

“Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely,” Trump tweeted from New Jersey. “Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!”
