The president's tweet comes after days of ratcheted up rhetoric between Washington and Pyongyang.
Trump issued a stark warning to North Korea on Tuesday, saying if North Korea continued to make significant threats to the U.S. "it will be met with fire, fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before."
Defense Secretary James Mattis also strongly warned Pyongyang to change its behavior.
"The DPRK should cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people," Mattis said in a statement.
North Korea responded to Trump saying it would launch an attack on the U.S. territory of Guam.
