In a new Interview, U.S President Donald Trump revealed that he will deal with North Korea’s growing threat of Nuclear capability if China refuses to, and now a top White House expert has revealed that with North Korea’s growing military strength, the United States could be hit with a nuke by the end of Donald Trump’s first term.
In an interview with The Financial Times on Sunday, deputy White House national security adviser KT McFarland warned: “There is a real possibility that North Korea will be able to hit the US with a nuclear-armed missile by the end of the first Trump term.”
The U.S believes North Korea is the greatest threat right now not just to Asia but to global world order, as Barack Obama warned Trump about the substantial advancements Pyongyang has made with their nuclear weapons and long-range missiles.
A Military official who doesn’t want to be named has now claimed North Korea leader Kim Jong-un is set to show the United States its capability of striking a target on the American mainland when it carries out its next missile test.
The official told the Korea Times: “The North showed off improved engine efficiency in a test last Saturday, and it will now focus on perfecting a long-range re-entry vehicle to make an operational ICBM.
“This is a step toward completing its ICBM technology.”
North Korea has never flight-tested its road-mobile KN-08 or KN-14 ICBMs, but military experts believe they are capable of flying more than 10,000km – a range sufficient to reach the United States.
