Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Tuesday that President Donald Trump, who said he would meet threats from Pyongyang "with fire and fury," should make sure he's ready to "do what you say you're going to do" before he makes threats to North Korea.

However, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Wednesday that he disagrees — Trump is "definitely ready to act" against North Korea, in response to their nuclear weapons program.

"On this, I disagree with [McCain]," Huckabee said on Fox News' "America's Newsroom" Wednesday. "I think President Trump is ready to act and surrounded by some of the top military minds we've ever produced."

He added, "I do believe that this is a president who is not going to take it lightly that a person is threatening to use nuclear weapons against the United States of America. When people continue to say they'll kill you, sooner or later you better take them seriously and you better do something to stop them."

The former governor expressed doubts about a diplomatic solution, saying that "now while we hope for some diplomatic solution, let's be clear, the North Koreans have to understand that we're not going to just allow them to continue . . . to make the threats."

Huckabee continued, "let's keep in mind they are lighting the candle on their missiles repeatedly trying to test them and get them to go further and further. That's where it no longer is just a diplomatic issue. Now it's a military issue. They light the candle on those missiles, they are taking military action and we have to be prepared to take military action to pre-emptively stop them from hitting a U.S. city."
