In case you missed it, the situation with North Korea has been steadily escalating. The rouge nation recently test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile which they claim can reach the continental United States. Tensions are rising, and President Donald Trump is doing little to relieve them:

Trump turned many heads with his ominous threat of "fire and fury" the likes of which the world has never seen. However, it's been revealed that Trump's words were entirely improvised, and that he said them without consulting any of his advisors.

Some generals surely expected questions about North Korea, and a "tough" response from Trump, but nothing this extreme:

Making huge, controversial statements is nothing new for our President:

Many people are wondering what the improvised nature of Trump's comments mean for his policy:

Though many believe a hard stance with North Korea is the best step, most everyone agrees massive statements against a threatening foreign power shouldn't be improvised in front of microphones.
