It was all but certain that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was going to fire back at President Donald Trump following the American President’s fiery address slamming Kim Jong-un before the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday. Thursday evening, the North Korean leader issued his response. And he held absolutely nothing back.
In a wild, 17-paragraph diatribe (via the AP), Kim Jong-un ripped Trump for the Tuesday speech.
“I expected he would make stereo-typed, prepared remarks a little different from what he used to utter in his office on the spur of the moment as he had to speak on the world’s biggest official diplomatic stage,” the statement said. “But, far from making remarks of any persuasive power that can be viewed to be helpful to defusing tension, he made unprecedented rude nonsense one has never heard from any of his predecessors”
From there, the statement just went totally off-the-rails.
A frightened dog barks louder.
I’d like to advise Trump to exercise prudence in selecting words and to be considerate of whom he speaks to when making a speech in front of the world.
The mentally deranged behavior of the U.S. president openly expressing on the UN arena the unethical will to “totally destroy” a sovereign state, beyond the boundary of threats of regime change or overturn of social system, makes even those with normal thinking faculty think about discretion and composure.
His remarks remind me of such words as “political layman” and “political heretic” which were in vogue in reference to Trump during his presidential election campaign.
After taking office Trump has rendered the world restless through threats and blackmail against all countries in the world. He is unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country, and he is surely a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire, rather than a politician.
