'You gotta behave' - Donald Trump issues stern warning to North Korea

The US president has warned North Korea over its missle activities

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Donald Trump has issued a stern warning to North Korea, telling the country it has to "behave."

The President's warning comes just days after North Korea conducted a failed long-range missle test in Pyongyang. 

On the so-called Day of the Sun, one missle failed to properly launch, malfunctioning only a few seconds after take-off. But the country also delivered a massive display of military force as men and materiel, including several types of missile, were paraded through the capital Pyongyang.

The ceremony occurred as Donald Trump sent a US task force to the Korean Peninsula as tensions in the region over the country's activities continue to escalate. He had previously warned on Twitter the US and its allies would step in to quell the situation if China did not succeed. 

The White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, said in a briefing on Monday Mr. Trump would not allow the activities of North Korea to be a threat to America. 

Spicer claimed Donald Trump would take "decisive action" where appropriate.
