The United States is ready with "military solutions" for the North Korea threat, President Donald Trump said Friday morning, promising they are "locked and loaded."

Trump tempered his aggressive statement with a note of hope that North Korea's leader "Kim Jong Un will find another path."

Trump's message, delivered on his personal Twitter account, comes the morning after he ramped up his rhetoric. On Thursday, he warned North Korea that if it "does anything" to the U.S. or its allies, "things will happen to them like they never thought possible."

"He has disrespected our country greatly," Trump said of Kim Thursday. "He has said things that are horrific. And with me, he's not getting away with it. He got away with it for a long time between him and his family...This is a whole new ball game."

North Korea's army reportedly will complete plans in mid-August to fire four intermediate-range missiles over Japan to land near Guam.

In an apparent move to illustrate his assertion, Trump us his personal and presidential accounts to retweet a message from the U.S. Pacific Command showing B-1B Lancer Bombers on Guam, ready to respond to North Korea.

His tweets came just hours after North Korea's state-run KCNA news agency called the White House "warmongers" who "are unaware of the fact that even a single shell dropped on the Korean Peninsula might lead to the outbreak of a new world war, a thermonuclear war."

"We consider the U.S. no more than a lump which we can beat to a jelly any time," the North Korean satement said.
