Hours after U.S President tweets about Kim Jong Un, North Korea calls Donald Trump an “erratic old man
Hours after U.S President Donald Trump issued warning to North Korea leader Kim Jong Un over denuclearization, North Korea has insulted President Trump describing him as a “heedless and erratic old man”.
This attack began after President Donald Trump tweeted that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un wouldn’t want to abandon a special relationship between the two leaders and affect the U.S. presidential election by resuming hostile acts
In a statement released by former nuclear negotiator and a senior North Korea official, Kim Yong Chol, he disclosed that his country wouldn’t cave in to U.S. pressure because it has nothing to lose and accused the Trump administration of attempting to buy time ahead of an end-of-year deadline set by Kim Jong Un for Washington to salvage nuclear talks.
“As he is such a heedless and erratic old man, the time when we cannot but call him a ‘dotard’ again may come,” Kim Yong-chol said, referring to personal insults and threats of nuclear war that ?Kim Jong-un and Mr. Trump exchanged two years ago.
The former foreign Minister Ri Su Yong in a separate statement also stated that Trump’s comments were a “corroboration that he feels fear” about what North Korea might do when Kim’s deadline expires and warned Trump to think twice if he wants to avoid “bigger catastrophic consequences.”
The North Korean official also said that Mr. Trump’s latest tweets showed that the president was “an old man bereft of patience.”
Mr. Trump had on Sunday warned that the North Korean leader should not “void his special relationship with the President of the United States or interfere with the U.S. Presidential Election in November” by resuming ?hostile acts.
“Kim Jong Un is too smart and has far too much to lose, everything actually, if he acts in a hostile way … North Korea, under the leadership of Kim Jong Un, has tremendous economic potential, but it must denuclearize as promised.” he tweeted
