Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Wednesday that President Donald Trump spoke “in language that Kim Jong-Un would understand.”

“I think what the president was doing was sending a strong message to North Korea in language that Kim Jong Un would understand, because he doesn’t seem to understand diplomatic language,” Secretary Tillerson said while en route to Guam, the U.S. territory specifically threatened by Kim Jong Un on Tuesday.

The secretary’s remarks come as reports indicate the North Koreans have produced a miniature nuclear device for an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). People’s Pundit Daily reported earlier Wednesday that the Obama Administration knew of these developments but chose not to act on it or disclose them to the public.

“I think the president just wanted to be clear to the North Korean regime that the U.S. has an unquestionable ability to defend itself, will defend itself and its allies and I think it was important that he deliver that message to avoid any miscalculation on their part.”
