Tensions between the U.S. and North Korea ratcheted up on Friday, as President Donald Trump doubled down on military threats.

"Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely," Trump tweeted Friday morning. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!"

Moments later, he retweeted a message from the U.S. Pacific Command’s official Twitter account, stating that "#USAF B-1B Lancer #bombers on Guam stand ready to fulfill USFK’s #FightTonight mission if called upon to do so."
