War of the Words – The current situation in North Korea

Posted on: Fri 11 Aug 2017

“Trump quite inexplicably raised the overall political temperature by tweeting about the fire and fury America could release on [North Korea]….”

After The United Nations placed harsh sanctions on the exports of North Korea, Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-un has retaliated by threatening to plant nuclear weapons on the US military in Guam. Headstrong President, Donald Trump has ignited a war of words between the rogue nation and has escalated the already frail relations.

International Correspondent Felix Patrikeef joined Breakfast presenter Tom Mann to discuss the issue of North Korea and how unstable allies, China and The United States attempt to work together to prevent the ongoing threat of nuclear warfare.
