The president doubled down on his nuclear tough talk Thursday by suggesting his recent pledge - that North Korea would face "fire and fury like the world has never seen" if it didn't stop threatening the United States - could have been stronger. While it's unclear what Trump might have first said to associates in private just after taking office, his first concrete actions did not address the United States's nuclear arsenal. "It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before", he wrote on Twitter.
Trump went on to say, "Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world".
