President Donald Trump vowed Wednesday that the U.S. nuclear arsenal is more powerful than ever before, but expressed hope that it would never have to be used.

Trump’s tweets follow his forceful pledge to the North Korean regime Tuesday that “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.”

The regime issued a threat to Andersen Air Base in Guam hours after Trump’s inflammatory statement Tuesday, saying it would “turn the US mainland into the theater of a nuclear war,” likely in a response to a U.S. flyover in the Korean peninsula and a U.S. ICBM test Aug. 2.
