AP

After North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Sunday warned that the country was close to testing a intercontinental ballistic missile, Donald Trump assured Americans that North Korea would not obtain a long range nuclear missile.

The President-elect did not elaborate on his plans to keep North Korea from creating a nuclear missile or his doubt about the country’s capabilities.

Trump also published a tweet criticizing the way China has responded to North Korea’s periodic threats to attack the United States with a nuclear weapon.
