After President Trump delivered some of his harshest threats directed at the North Korean regime at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley tells "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday that Mr. Trump doesn't actually want to go war with the North Koreans. "No one wants war, the president doesn't want war, we tried to do this through dialogue, we tried to do this through sanctions we've tried every diplomatic matter we can, and we're not giving up on that," said Haley, appearing to shift from Mr. Trump's warning of "total destruction" in his first speech to the General Assembly.
Now he’s called North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un “Rocket Man” on Twitter and in a speech to world leaders at the United Nations.
It led New Yorker humorist Andy Borowitz to write a satirical piece with the headline “In war of Elton John lyrics, Kim Jong Un calls Trump ‘Honky Cat,'” a reference to another Elton John classic. It leaves room to be interpreted in a few different ways, largely because of the mega-hit song performed by Elton John, a fact that wasn’t lost on many people paying attention to Tru speech.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has warned President Trump that he will make the U.S. leader “pay dearly” for his threat to totally destroy North Korea, in an unusual direct and angry statement published Friday. Calling Trump a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard” and his speech to the U.N.
Whatever Trump might have expected, he will face results beyond his expectation,” Kim said, saying that he would “tame” Trump “with fire.” In his maiden address to the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, Trump called Kim “Rocket Man” and said that his administration was prepared to defend the country and its allies if Kim continued to threaten the United States and to destabilize East Asia.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, in an extraordinary and direct rebuke, called President Donald Trump "deranged" and said he will "pay dearly" for his threats, a possible indication of more powerful weapons tests on the horizon. Hours later, North Korea’s foreign minister reportedly said that his country may be planning to test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean to fulfill Kim’s vow to take the "highest-level" action against the United States.
