(ShareCast News) - US President Donald trump tweeted that the US military is "locked and loaded" in reference to dealing with North Korea, the latest from the US-North Korea standoff.

"Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!", wrote the 45th President of the United States of America on his Twitter account.

This comes a day after Trump's defence secretary said the United States was ready to counter any threat from Pyongyang, which only hours before announced plans to bracket the US Pacific territory of Guam by launching several missiles into the waters around it.
