Trump Mocks ‘Short and Fat’ Kim Jong Un, Announces China is ‘Upping’ DPRK Sanctions in Tweetstorm


In President Donald Trump’s Saturday night Twitter rant, he referred to Kim Jong Un as “short and fat,” attacked the “haters and fools” who question his coziness to Vladimir Putin, claimed China is “upping the sanctions” on North Korea — without providing evidence — and slammed Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for their relationships with Russia.

“Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me “old,” when I would NEVER call him “short and fat?” Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!” Said the president — capping off his six part tweetstorm tonight.

Between all of Trump’s hot air against his critics in the press, foreign opponents, and predecessor, he actually announced a major change in Chinese policy by suggesting President Xi Jinping is now willing to implement harsh sanctions on the DPRK. However, despite the president’s tweet, China has not implemented any new sanctions, nor has the communist country announced plans to do so.

Trump — who is currently tweeting from in Vietnam while on his 12-day trip throughout Asia — took time out of his day to mock Clinton for accidentally misspelling “Reset Button” in Russian and instead writing “Overcharge” in 2009.
