“North Korea vowed Monday to strike the U.S. with “thousands-fold” revenge after the United Nations imposed new sanctions in response to a recent intercontinental ballistic missile launch from the rogue regime…  North Korea, which consistently threatens to send “gift packages” to the U.S., vowed to take “righteous actions” that would make America pay “thousands of times.”  The fiery response from the nation came in the face of the sanctions and as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson demanded the rogue nation halt its missile tests so the U.S. and North Korea could start negotiations.”

“U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley called the resolution “the single largest economic sanctions package ever leveled against the North Korean regime” and “the most stringent set of sanctions on any country in a generation.”

Haley told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” “What we basically did was kicked them in the stomach, told them to stop and told them they are not going to put up with it anymore and the ball is now in North Korea’s court. They have a big decision to make. They can either respond by pulling back and said that they’re not going to be part of this reckless activity anymore, or they can see where it goes…”
