President Trump and North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un or however you spell it has been in a word-fight of sorts for the last few weeks with the POTUS promising to rain hell down on the wayward country.
Wanting to take it up a notch Ri Yong-ho, North Korean Foreign Minister, stated during his address to the United Nations this weekend that a “merciless preemptive strike” on the U.S. was inevitable. Further commenting that “Trump is on a suicide mission.”
Trump took to his Twitter account (God Bless Twitter and Trump) to respond in kind…
Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won’t be around much longer!
What do you think? Do you think this is just posturing or could we be on the verge of a war? If we go to war, I believe there should be no doubt that Kim will launch and if it comes to that… if defeat is inevitable, I think Kim would launch in all directions.
When Trump spoke at the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday, he warned that the U.S. would “totally destroy” North Korea if it was forced to defend itself or its allies. The president’s speech triggered an unprecedented personal response from North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, who threatened to “tame the mentally-deranged dotard with fire.”
Speaking in Alabama Friday night, the president said that the U.S. will handle North Korea because “we can’t have mad men out there shooting rockets all over the place.”
“I’m sure he’s listening,” Trump said of Kim Jong Un before calling the North a menace.
