Trump's United Nations address demonstrates 'insanity'

23 September 2017

Trump was "a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire, rather than a politician", said Kim on Friday.

Trump said on Friday morning that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un "will be tested like never before", as the two leaders continue trading insults and Pyongyang threatened to test a hydrogen bomb over the Pacific Ocean.

North Korea's textiles, fishing, information technology, and manufacturing industries are among those the U.S. could target, Mr Trump said. In his statement, Mr. Kim called the US Leader "mentally deranged" and a "frightened Dog".

Kim responded in a statement Thursday saying Trump will "pay dearly" for his address to the United Nations and that North Korea is considering the strongest possible response to what he called the USA president's provocation.

"I do not know what measure it will be, because the decision will be made by our Dear Respected Comrade [Kim Jong-un], the chairman of the State Affairs Commission", said North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho on Thursday in NY.

North Korea could test a powerful nuclear weapon over the Pacific Ocean in response to US President Donald Trump's threats of military action, the country's foreign minister has warned.

North Korean state-run agency KCNA has released Kim's statement in which he said North Korea "will consider with seriousness exercising of a corresponding highest level of hardline countermeasure in history". Earlier this month, North Korea conducted its most powerful nuclear test to date, drawing stiffer United Nations sanctions.

The dispatch was unusual in that it was written in the first person, albeit filtered through the North's state media, which are part of propaganda efforts meant to glorify Kim.

"As President Trump said, the worldwide community must continue to work together to confront rogue regimes and that is exactly what the Prime Minister will be doing in discussions with world leaders in NY this week". Such type of tests could lead to radioactive fallouts as well as strong electromagnetic pulse and North Korea may face a significant diplomatic backlash. "Voices from every corner of the world are calling on him to cease his program, come to the table and let's talk about the future of North Korea and the North Korean people".

Trump had recently ordered fresh sanctions over Pyongyang's weapons programmes and even praised China for taking an action to limit financial transactions with North Korea.

The latest threats of a bomb-and-missile test coming out of Pyongyang, as NPR's Geoff Brumfiel reported earlier this month, raises the specter not seen since the height of the Cold War.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said banks doing business in North Korea would not be allowed to also operate in the US under the new sanctions order.

Earlier this month, North Korea conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test to date drawing stiffer United Nations sanctions.

Japan's prime minister said that the country's stance on North Korea's tactics of intimidation align with that of the U.S.
