During his speech before the United Nations General Assembly, President Trump said America will “totally destroy North Korea” if the rogue nation continues with their hostile provocations.
After an address on his pro-nationalism worldview, Trump moved on to talk about how the Kim Jong Un regime has shown more contempt for the goals and ideals of the U.N. than any other nation on Earth. The president pointed to North Korea’s oppressive disregard for human rights, as well as the regime’s brutal treatment of Otto Warmbier, the American college student who died shortly after being released from a prison camp months ago.
“It is an outrage that some nations would not only trade with such a regime, but would arm, supply and financially support a country that imperils the world with nuclear conflict. no nation on earth has an interest in srm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles. 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.”
Trump continued to bring back his recent Twitter insult against Kim by saying “Rocket Man is on a suicide mission.” He went on to call for increased action by the U.N. while saying that denuclearization is the “only acceptable future” for the Hermit Kingdom.
