(KKTV) - Amid claims from North Korean leader Kim Jon Un that his country would test an intercontinental ballistic missile, President-elect Donald Trump is firing back.

Trump tweeted: "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!"

It isn't clear if Trump is stating he would stop North Korea if the country tried or if he's claiming the country doesn't have the capability.
