It was only a matter of time before North Korea’s Supreme Leader, Kim Jong un, responded to the American President’s recent remarks aimed not only at his nation, but at Kim personally. In his first time addressing the United Nations, President Trump once again referred to Kim Jong un as “Rocket Man on a suicide mission” a; throwback to a recent post on Twitter. He also said in no uncertain terms that if the United States was forced to, it would destroy Kim’s nation.
“The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,” he said.
Kim, who is no stranger to WWE style geopolitical rhetoric, responded to the President’s remarks before the UN on Thursday, as did North Korea’s Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho.
“A frightened dog barks louder,” Kim said of President Trump’s speech on Thursday. “He is surely a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire, rather than a politician.”
