A Republican senator said President Donald Trump has the power and inclination to engage North Korea in an event that would be "one of the worst catastrophic events in the history of our civilization," according to reports.

Sen. James Risch, R-Idaho, made the comments Sunday at the Munich Security Conference in Germany, adding that Trump is committed — and will not waver — to ensuring that North Korea never marries a nuke with a delivery system that could reach the U.S.

"The president of the United States has said, and he is committed to, seeing that Kim Jong Un is not able to marry together a delivery system with a nuclear weapon that he can deliver to the United States," Risch said. "And anyone who doubts the president's commitment to see that that doesn't happen does so really at their own peril.

"If this thing starts, it's going to be probably one of the one of the worst catastrophic events in the history of our civilization," Risch said. "It is going to be very, very brief. The end of it is going to see mass casualties the likes of which the planet has never seen. It will be of biblical proportions."
