Japan to extend missile shield after N. Korea threatens Guam

Earlier Friday, Trump said on Twitter that U.S. "If Kim Jong Un said he would hit Anchorage, would he say, go ahead hit Anchorage and see what happens?", Underwood said.

In addition to the "locked and loaded" tweet, Trump also retweeted one from the U.S. Pacific Command with pictures of fighter jets and the statement that "Lancer #bombers on Guam stand ready to fulfill USFK's #FightTonight mission if called upon to do so".

A day after Trump said North Korea would face "fire and fury" if it kept threatening the U.S., a warning was issued by North Korea where it threatened to strike the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam. The unusually precise statement said the four missiles would be launched simultaneously and overfly the Japanese prefectures of Shimane, Hiroshima and Kochi.

"China opposes both nuclear proliferation and war in the Korean Peninsula". It suggested building an emergency kit and having a family plan, and in the event of an attack, lying flat and avoiding looking directly at the blast.

It comes after Trump threatened North Korea with "fire and fury" as well as tweeting that the U.S. was "locked and loaded".

Instead he promised to respond to the next provocation from North Korea with what many assumed to mean nuclear force.

"I will tell you this, North Korea better get their act together or they're going to be in trouble like few nations have ever been in trouble in this world, okay?" he added.

Trump had called on Beijing in the past to exert its control over North Korea, its trading partner, on several instances.
