President Donald Trump says there is “absolutely” a chance that the United States and North Korea could end up in a “major, major conflict.”
His comments follow multiple North Korean missile tests, which have escalated tensions between the rogue Asian nation and its neighbors, as well as the U.S.
“There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea. Absolutely,” Trump said in a Reuters interview released Thursday night.
But despite these ominous words, the president said, “we’d love to solve things diplomatically but it’s very difficult.”
