North Korea Mocks Trump's 'Nuclear Button' Tweet as 'Spasm of a Lunatic'

Trump's history of breaking decorum with remarks on race, ethnicity

"He is making (a) bluff only to be diagnosed as a psychopath".

Trump's controversial "nuclear button" tweet was in response to Kim's New Year's Day warning that North Korea's nuclear arsenal is a real threat and that he has a nuclear launch button on his desk at all times.

"I'm not sure that talks will lead to anything meaningful", he said. He went on to threaten that the USA arsenal "works". These talks between North and South Korea are a noticeable improvement to relations even from a few short weeks ago. Instead Trump named the leaders of surrounding Asian countries, including Japan, China, and North Korea - despite being prompted by the interviewer.

"There is growing evidence that our maximum pressure campaign is being felt in North Korea".

In November, North Korea had tested its latest intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). He's quoted by state media saying, "If the US awkwardly attempts to provoke the DPRK, it will not escape from the biggest disaster in the history".

In a separate editorial also published on Tuesday, Rodong Sinmun called Trump 'a lunatic president whose thinking faculty is at the level of preschooler and who has the symptom of dementia'.

The article said the book's popularity "foretells Trump's political demise" and that it represents "rapidly surging anti-Trump sentiments in the worldwide community". "That's the good news", according to a transcript obtained by The Post. It is his harshest language yet against the regime.

In another startling revelation, Chun said that a 14-year-old child in North Korea probably receives at least 100 hours of military training in a year.

The recent Twitter battle between the US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has now a new twist in the tale.

But Trump is not alone in his aversion to using Moon's name. Asked him how Rocket Man is doing.

Another challenge in Vancouver will be the absence of China, which has significant influence in North Korea. In September, after Trump nicknamed Kim "little rocket man", Kim called Trump a "mentally deranged USA dotard".

Hecker was invited to see the secret nuclear complex in North Korea that contained extracted plutonium.

South Korea says it doesn't plan to field a joint bobsled team with North Korea during next month's Winter Games in the South.

Trump, in fact, was widely panned after this "nuclear button" tweet.

Trump and North Korean officials have traded barbs over the past year as tensions between their two countries increased.

Instead, the United States and others will have to come to terms with the reality of a nuclear North Korea, Grinius said.

The book repeatedly raises questions about Trump's mental capacities.
