North Korean leader Kim Jong Un wants world recognition for his regime and the USA needs to stop backing him into a corner. "Nobody loves a peaceful solution more than President Trump, that I can tell you..." "It's tailor-made for somebody to misuse".

The comments came after Trump unleashed a slew of fresh threats against North Korea on Friday, declaring the US military "locked and loaded. What we need is someone bringing calm to the situation, not spiking it".
"That's why we see more and more people making the argument that the North Korea's nuclear development is not aimed at the USA, not aimed at South Korea, but aimed at reunification".
The missiles are created to carry nuclear weapons but it is not clear if the North has warheads small enough to fit on them, or the technology to bring them back to earth in one piece.
Trump responded to that development by threatening to unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea if it continued to threaten the U.S. Since then, Trump has exchanged threats with North Korea, which said Wednesday that its military would have plans in place by mid-August to attack waters near the U.S. territory of Guam.
