United States President Donald Trump on Friday tweeted that military solutions were "fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely."
However, the tweet did not seem to have gone down well with several Twitter users, including actor Kal Penn, who quoted the tweet asking if Trump's Twitter account could be suspended for "threatening violence" against North Korea?
Penn has previously worked with former US President Barack Obama.
Several Twitter users have over the last 24 hours reported Trump's tweet, which threatened violence against North Korea. Critics have said that the tweet from Trump's personal handle — @realDonaldTrump — is a threat of violence and is, therefore, a violation of the social networking site's terms of service.
However, there were also some who seemed convinced that Trump's tweet was not a threat of violence.
Military solutions are now fully in place,locked and loaded,should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!

Several users slammed Trump's tweet:
Threatening nuclear war on Twitter feels like a terms of service violation — Pablo S. Torre (@PabloTorre) August 11, 2017
I assume that you don't even have a clue what you are talking about. I just Hope Mattis and Kelly have you under control...

This isn't funny anymore. He is clearly mentally ill and in dire need of assistance. @flotus or someone inside the WH needs to stand up.

Trump's tweets have made headlines several times in the past with many calling for the suspension and banning of his Twitter handle.
"We do not comment on individual accounts, for privacy and security reasons," Mashable quoted a Twitter spokesperson as saying.
