President Donald Trump fired a verbal warning shot at North Korea on Thursday, stating that China should be able to handle the aggressive nuclear threats of leader Kim Jong Un, but if it can't, the United States will.

In an early morning tweet, the commander-in-chief wrote:

Trump's no-nonsense missive comes just days after his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping and amid saber-rattling by Kim, who is continuing to conduct missile tests.

It comes as U.S. warships headed toward the North Korean coast with the Asian nation preparing to celebrate the 105th birthday of its founder, Kim Il-sung, on Saturday.

The celebration may put North Korea on a military collision course with the United States.

The New York Times reports that Kim will mark the day by either firing a ballistic missile or testing a nuclear device. Such actions could trigger a U.S. military response.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has said North Korea may have the capacity to deliver missiles equipped with sarin nerve gas.

Trump also took to Twitter on Thursday to comment on the ongoing tension between the United States and Russia, following the U.S. missile strike of a Syrian air base last week.

Trump tweeted:

On Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met in Moscow that was described as chilly.
