North Korea responded by saying it was considering a plan to attack Guam and dismissed Trump's warnings as a "load of nonsense".

"That was one of those I wish I'd not said", Ellison, who also serves as the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, told The Washington Post shortly after he made the accusation. "It's tailor-made for somebody to misuse". I mean, his rhetoric might make Kim Jong Un think that he needs to strike first. "So between that and Trump's promise to unleash fire and fury at North Korea, you could be forgiven for your confusion about whether you're listening to the fictional Daenerys Targaryen on "Game of Thrones" or the very real President of the United States".

Boris Johnson has said the regime of Kim Jong Un is responsible for the crisis over North Korea's nuclear programme and must now "fix it". "Well, he's acting more responsible than this guy".

And that doesn't mean talk hasn't been tough - the US has been speaking forcefully to North Korea all this time, said Ellen Tauscher, former USA under secretary of state for arms control and worldwide security under President Barack Obama.

The United Nations Security Council, with encouragement from the USA, voted unanimously at the beginning of August to impose new sanctions against North Korea in retaliation for the regime's recent intercontinental ballistic missile tests.

The crisis blew up following the disclosure that United States intelligence analysts had concluded North Korean scientists had developed a nuclear warhead small enough to fit on a ballistic missile.

President Trump, in contrast, Savage said, responded to Kim's threat to fire missiles that would strike near the US territory of Guam with a warning that North Korea would be met with "fire and fury like the world has never seen".
