Nikki Haley: Trump's fire and fury comment 'not an empty threat'

Posted: Updated:
Eli Watkins, CNN -

US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Sunday that President Donald Trump's "fire and fury" comment last month about North Korea's nuclear program was not an empty threat.

In an interview with CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union," Haley emphasized that Defense Secretary James Mattis has an array of options to destroy the nation of some 25 million people.

If the US exhausts diplomatic options on North Korea, the US military would "take care of it," Haley said,

"We wanted to be responsible and go through all diplomatic means to get their attention first," Haley said. "If that doesn't work, General Mattis will take care of it."
