Report claims Trump's 'fire and fury' North Korea statement was improvised


President Donald Trump sent shockwaves through the world after saying on Tuesday, "North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen."

But it turns out that Trump's "fire and fury" line was actually completely improvised, according to the New York Times.

The Times says that people with direct knowledge of the situation had no prior knowledge about the line and it wasn't run by them in discussions before the meeting.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson attempted to quell concerns of any retaliation from Pyongyang after Trump's remarks by saying, "I think Americans should sleep well at night, have no concerns about this particular rhetoric of the last few days."

The quick improvisation has also kept up tensions in the White House and the debate between General H.R. McMaster and Chief Strategist Steve Bannon about how to deal with North Korea.

So while we debate on the best course of action to take with North Korea, there is no debate that Trump's "fire and fury" line was planned... because apparently it wasn't.

It's also been pointed out that the line is eerily similar to the statement former President Harry Truman delivered to the country and the world that the United States had dropped an atomic bomb on Japan in August 1945.

"If they do not now accept our terms they may expect a rain of ruin from the air, the like of which has never been seen on this earth," said Truman.
