The morning after the US Geological Survey confirmed multiple tremors in North Korea that appeared to corroborate the rogue nation’s boasts of a missile-ready hydrogen bomb, President Donald Trump took aim at South Korea to insist that “appeasement with North Korea” will simply not work.

On Sunday morning, Trump issued a salvo of tweets condemning North Korea’s belligerent actions and laying out a stern approach to dealing with Pyongyang’s outsize aggression in the region.

“North Korea has conducted a major Nuclear Test,” he wrote. “Their words and actions continue to be very hostile and dangerous to the United States. North Korea is a rogue nation which has become a great threat and embarrassment to China, which is trying to help but with little success.”

“South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work, they only understand one thing!” Trump continued, echoing previous sentiments that the U.S. would ultimately respond with “fire and fury” if provoked.

The president went on to outline how he and his administration would proceed, suggesting drastic action that would further isolate North Korea after endless United Nations Security Councils have failed to bring about the desired effect.

“I will be meeting General Kelly, General Mattis and other military leaders at the White House to discuss North Korea. Thank you,” he wrote. “The United States is considering, in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea.”

On Saturday night, Pyongyang announced via the country’s KCNA news agency that Kim Jong Un now had at his disposal “a multi-functional thermonuclear nuke with great destructive power, which can be detonated even at high altitudes for super-powerful EMP attack according to strategic goals.”

The pronouncement was followed by a “surface” explosion recorded by the USGS that was followed by a shallow 6.3-magnitude quake, which in turn preceded a 4.6-magnitude tremor, both of which were attributed to weapon tests.
