"And nobody, including North Korea, is going to be threatening us with anything", he said. "There's no real reflection in the budget, it's just a continuation - they didn't stop anything, they didn't slow anything down and they also didn't accelerate anything".

Yesterday, the president said the regime would be met with "fire and fury" if it continues to threaten the US. Moscow had last month announced counter measures in response to tough new sanctions proposed by the United States, ordering Washington to reduce its diplomatic staff.
