After Kim Jong Un's vitriolic
outburst that called Donald Trump a frightened dog and a mentally deranged
dotard on his warning to totally destroy North Korea, North Korea is now trying
to put Donald Trump in the dock for his "thrice-cursed sophism".
In a reaction to Trump's
maiden United Nations General Assembly speech, KCNA, the official news agency
of North Korea, has said that Trump's speech has shocked not just the United
Nations but the whole world.
While speaking at the UNGA on
September 19, Trump had warned that if the United States was forced to defend
itself or its allies, it would have no choice but to totally destroy North
Korea adding that the Rocket Man was on a suicide mission for himself and for
Trump invented the term
Rocket Man to describe Kim Jong Un after a series of missile and nuclear tests
by North Korea under his watch.
Trump's speech has been
widely panned by media outfits and world leaders and that may have given North
Korea a chance to browbeat its own propaganda, even if Trump didn't mean it so
and it was just a bad choice of words, something that usually happens with him.
Commentaries and reports in
publications like The Washington Post, CNN, Financial Times, The Guardian and
reactions of leaders like UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, French
President Emmanuel Macron, Hillary Clinton, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and
many others termed Trump's assertions wrong and miscalculated. They found Trump's
remarks could give rise to fatal misunderstandings as Guterres put it.
A Washington Post commentary
said that Trump's words implied that he threatened not just to uproot the North
Korean regime but the entire nation along with its people while The Guardian
wrote that Trump's language cannot be seen as funny as "he controls a
nuclear arsenal powerful enough to annihilate humanity several times over."
Declaring Trump's remarks as
heinous and something that something "that can be uttered by the boss of
gangsters rather than by a politician", KCNA added in its release that "the
international community was raising voices of denunciation, being deeply
concerned about such outbursts and wild words as "total destruction"
of a sovereign state, not just "overturn of social system" and
LATEST IN DONALD TRUMP - KIM JONG
UN WAR OF WORDS
In the latest, Donald Trump
has concluded that Kim Jong Un is a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing
his own people and for his acts he will be tested and punished like never
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
Kim Jong Un of North Korea,
who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will
be tested like never before!
Donald Trump's warning came
after Kim Jong Un lashed on him for his UNGA speech. Trump said that
denuclearization was the only acceptable future of North Korea and later on
signed an Executive Order imposing more sanctions on the nation.
In response to Trump's warning,
Kim described him as a gangster fond of playing with fire and displaying an unprecedented
rude nonsense one had never heard from any of his predecessors.
He didn't stop at this. He
further said that Trump was a mentally deranged dotard, a frightened dog who
barked louder and North Korea knew how to tame him.
And like Donald Trump had
warned North Korea last month that if it escalated nuclear threat, it would be met with fire and fury like the world
had never seen, Kim concluded that the North Korean fire would surely and
definitely tame Donald Trump. North Korea also warned that it may soon detonate
its most powerful hydrogen bomb yet over the Pacific.
Earlier this month, on September
3, North Korea had detonated a hydrogen bomb in its sixth and most powerful
nuclear test to date and Pyongyang had warned of more ‘gift packages’ for
Washington which came true when it test fired an intermediate-range ballistic
missile over Japan on September 15.
