Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Wednesday that Americans “should sleep well at night” regarding the situation with North Korea, according to NBC.

Tillerson said he has “no concerns about this particular rhetoric over the last few days.”

During a planned stop in Guam, however, Tillerson said he had seen nothing in the past 24 hours that made him think military action was more likely, and that he had no reason to reroute his trip.

“Well, the North Korean missile capability can point at many directions, so Guam is not the only place that can be under threat,” he said in Andersen Air Force Base — the very same facility mentioned in North Korea’s statement.

Tillerson added that President Trump is using aggressive language to get the attention of Kim Jong Un.

“I think what the president was doing was sending a strong message to North Korea in language that Kim Jung Un would understand because he doesn’t seem to understand diplomatic language,” Tillerson told reporters on the plane.

“The President just wanted to be clear to the North Korean regime that the U.S. has an unquestionable ability to defend itself, will defend itself and its allies, and I think it was important that he deliver that message to avoid any miscalculation on their part,” he added.

All of this comes one day after President Trump said North Korea will be met “with fire and fury” if hostility continues.
