The Republican businessman dismissed any criticism of his "fire and fury" warning, saying it possibly "wasn't tough enough" given threats made by the government of Kim Jong Un to both Washington and its allies.

"Frankly, the people who were questioning that statement, was it too tough? Maybe it wasn't tough enough," he told reporters in his golf resort in New Jersey after the DPRK announced a detailed plan to send four missiles over Japan and towards Guam, where some 6,000 US soldiers are based.

Despite his harsh rhetoric as the war of words intensifies between Pyongyang and Washington, Trump offered assurance to the public, saying that the American people "should be very comfortable."

On Tuesday, Trump issued a controversial warning to the DPRK that appeared to threaten a nuclear war with the Asian country.
