With tensions growing between North Korea and the US, especially in recent weeks with numerous missile tests, President Donald Trump has responded to one big question in a worrying way.
Trump has previously threatened to stop trading with any country that trades with North Korea – such as China – and has threatened a massive military retaliation.
In a short clip filmed by ITV News, somebody can be heard asking Trump if he’ll attack North Korea, to which he replies: “We’ll see”.

This comes after the ‘rogue’ state performed their sixth and largest nuclear test on Sunday, which was apparently successful and caused a significant earthquake in the region.
A South Korean news agency Yonhap reports the Seoul defence ministry estimate Kim Jong-Un’s nuclear tests at around 50 kilotons, more powerful than the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined.
Today, South Korea said it has seen ‘indications’ the North is preparing for even more missile launches, and according to BBC, ‘possibly an intercontinental ballistic missile’.

Over the past two months North Korea has conducted ballistic missile tests, sending one over mainland Japan into the Pacific Ocean, causing warning sirens to sound.
The UN Security Council is holding an emergency meeting later on to discuss its response.
Very worrying indeed.
