On Wednesday, the James Bond-like war of words between President Trump and Kim Jong Un’s North Korean regime continued unabated, with North Korean state media stating Trump has been "sentenced to death by the Korean people."
An op-ed in the North Korean newspaper Rodong Sinmun stated:
He should know that he is just a hideous criminal sentenced to death by the Korean people. He will be forced to pay dearly for his blasphemy any moment … The Korean people will regard the face of Trump as a symbol of wolf-like U.S. imperialism and as a target of merciless retaliation and send him to the hell he likes so much to tout.
Last Saturday, North Korea's foreign ministry released an official statement saying,"Reckless remarks by an old lunatic like Trump will never scare us or stop our advance." Trump responded:
That followed Trump’s warning against Pyongyang's nuclear aggression when he spoke to South Korea's legislative body, asserting, “All responsible nations must join forces to isolate the brutal regime. You cannot support, you cannot supply, you cannot accept. We will not allow American cities to be threatened with destruction. We will not be intimidated. And we will not let the worst atrocities in history be repeated here, on this ground we fought and died so hard to secure."
If the righteous many do not confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph. Rocket man is on a suicide mission … 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."
Kim then called Trump a "mentally deranged dotard."
