Chinese President warns Trump to tone down language after 'fire and fury' threats to North KoreaXi Jinping has urged Donald Trump to “avoid remarks and actions that escalate tensions on the Korean peninsula” following the US President’s repeated outspoken statements on the nuclear crisis. Mr Trump has warned North Korea it faces “fire and fury like the world has never seen” if it continues to threaten the US with missiles, and issued similar threats after provocations from Pyongyang that included a claim it was planning a strike on Guam. In a phone call, Mr Trump and Mr Xi “agreed North Korea must stop its provocative and escalatory behaviour,” the White House said in a statement, and reiterated their mutual commitment to removing nuclear weapons from the Korean peninsula.
