Trump on Kim Jong Un's Expanded Missile Testing: 'It Won't Happen!'
In his annual televised New Year's Day address, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un promised more missile tests and a stronger military for his country.
However, according to President-elect Donald Trump, "it won't happen!"
North Korea just stated that it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the U.S. It won't happen!

In the address, Kim said:
"Research and development of the cutting-edge tech weapons are actively progressing and strengthening our defense capabilities, including last stage preparation of tests for intercontinental ballistic rocket launch have been continuously succeeding."
Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer joined "Special Report with Bret Baier" Monday to discuss North Korea's potential missile testing.
"If the North Koreans test an intercontinental ballistic missile, that means they can wipe out Los Angeles tomorrow," Krauthammer said. "They can mount a warhead on it. That would be the single most important and threatening action that one can imagine for 2017."
He continued that Trump must be asked at his next press conference exactly what he meant by "it won't happen."
"He is aware of the fact that we are looking at a strategic hinge point in history. ... This is an insane regime with the ability to push a button and wipe out a U.S. city," Krauthammer said.
