US President Donald Trump lashed out at North Korea for its recent missile launch which flew over its Asian neighbour Japan. Trump stood before a B-2 stealth bomber and a vast US flag, while warning that advanced US weaponry could make the souls of America's enemies "crumble."
Addressing several hundred air force personnel after reviewing some of America's most high-tech fighters jets and bombers, Trump warned that Pyongyang had "once again shown its utter contempt for its neighbours and for the entire world community."
"After seeing our capabilities, I am more confident than ever that our options are not only effective but overwhelming," Trump said.
The UN Security Council on Friday strongly condemned North Korea's "highly provocative" launch of a missile that flew over Japan and demanded that Pyongyang immediately halt such actions.
In a unanimous statement backed by China, the council said the launch was carried out just three weeks after a first missile overflew Japan and less than two weeks after Pyongyang's sixth and biggest nuclear test.
