Reports surfaced Tuesday that U.S. intelligence officials believe North Korea has produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead. Experts had thought the compact warhead capability was years away. President Trump met the news and further aggressive language from Kim Jung Un with his own strong language, saying that North Korea will be met with "fire and fury" if it makes more threats to the United States. North Korea responded threatening a missile strike on Guam.
