North Korea says it will shoot down US bombers if it feels threatened.

It comes after Donald Trump ramped up his rhetoric on Twitter.

The President is threatening to "totally destroy" North Korea, and says the country's leaders "won't be around much longer".

Guardian world affairs editor, Julian Borger, told Rachel Smalley North Korean foreign minister Ri Yong Ho isn't mincing words in response.

"He was specific about shooting down US strategic bombers outside of North Korean airspace."
