Donald Trump late this week told reporters that “Maybe this is the calm before the storm,” and when pressed by follow-up questions to figure out exactly what he meant by that, the president said, “You’ll find out.”

Could it have been another hint that he wants to start a war with North Korea? Given his tweets on Saturday afternoon, that now seems like a possibility.

Trump has been taunting North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, calling him “Little Rocket Man” and informing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that diplomacy won’t work with the rogue nation.

“Save your energy Rex, we’ll do what has to be done!” Trump tweeted earlier this month.

In August, Trump proclaimed that North Korea would “be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen” if the country continued to threaten the U.S.
