'We will never yield, never waver and never falter in defense of our freedom, ' Trump said.
During election campaigning, Trump said South Korea and Japan must make more contributions for together hosting 80,000 USA troops or he might withdraw those soldiers. With North Korea's defeat - but at what cost?,' Givens said.
He is warning North Korea's heavily persecuted Christian minority will be the first to suffer if Trump doesn't back down.
A report by the Congressional Research Service released last month estimates that as many as 25 million people on either side of the border, including more than 100,000 US citizens, could be affected by an escalation of a military conflict on the Korean Peninsula.
