WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Sixty-three percent of Americans say they believe the United States will take military action against North Korea as tensions build up between the two countries.
"Most voters think it’s likely the United States will soon be at war with North Korea," the poll said.
The poll was conducted by phone and online Wednesday through Thursday among 1,000 US citizens, and has a margin of error of plus-minus 3 percentage points.
The move prompted harsh criticism from Pyongyang which subsequently vowed to use any means possible to retaliate against the United States after the UNSC approved the new US-drafted sanctions. Trump in turn, warned, that North Korea’s possible actions would be met with "fire and fury" from the United States. Following the statement, Pyongyang said it is considering an attack near the Pacific island of Guam where several US military bases were located.
Earlier in the day, Trump said that US military solutions are "fully in place, locked and loaded" should North Korea "act unwisely."
