Donald Trump promised that North Korean nuclear missiles ‘won’t happen’ in a pair of tweets Monday night – but also attacked China for ‘taking money from the US’ without ‘helping’ with the hermit state.
The President-elect’s remark came after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announced Saturday that preparations for Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs) have ‘reached the final stage’.
On Monday Trump tweeted: ‘North Korea just stated that it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the US. It won’t happen!’
