— North Korea's foreign minister on Monday told reporters that President Donald Trump has issued "a declaration of war" against the Hermit Kingdom in the president’s most recent statements on the country.
However, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders insisted at a news briefing on Monday that no declaration had been made.
“We’ve not declared war on North Korea, and frankly the suggestion of that is absurd,” she said.
On Saturday, Trump said that North Korea "won't be around much longer" if it continues to threaten the United States.
