President Donald Trump told the public on Twitter that the United States is wholly prepared to take military action against North Korea and Kim Jong Un's regime should they continue with their aggression against the U.S.
"Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely," Trump tweeted Friday morning. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!"

Trump's tweet Friday follows up a series of statements he's made in the past week about the escalating nuclear situation between the U.S. and North Korea.
Tuesday saw the president issue a warning to North Korea, and claimed that if the country continued its aggression and threats toward the U.S., it would be "met with fire, fury, and frankly power — the likes of which this world has never seen before."
North Korea, in response to Trump's threat, claimed that they would launch an attack against U.S. territory Guam, and would do so by Aug. 15.
Trump doubled down on Tuesday's remarks during a security briefing Thursday at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club.
To reporters, Trump said, "I will tell you this, if North Korea does anything in terms of even thinking about attack of anybody that we love or we represent or our allies or us, they can be very, very nervous. They should be very nervous. Things will happen to them like they never thought possible.”
