Did Kim Jong Un call Donald Trump 'dotard' or 'old beast lunatic'?

Did Kim Jong Un call Donald Trump 'dotard' or 'old beast lunatic'?

Kim Jong Un, the North Korean leader who President Donald Trump labeled a "madman" in a Friday morning post to Twitter, will "be tested like never before" the president wrote.

If Pyongyang makes good on the threat, it would mean marrying the two most powerful weapons known to man: a fusion-type nuclear weapon and a ballistic missile.

However, the rhetoric was starting to rattle some in the global community. The rare statement from the North Korean leader responded to Trump's combative speech days earlier where he not only issued the warning of potential obliteration for the isolated nation, but also mocked the North's young autocrat as a "Rocket Man" on a "suicide mission".

Peter's said that China needs to intervene before the USA and North Korea go to war.

As President Trump and Kim Jong-un trade words and North Korea amps up their nuclear weapon development, many Americans are living with fear.

Kim said his country will consider the "highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history", a possible indication of more powerful weapons tests on the horizon, but didn't elaborate.

"This could probably mean the strongest hydrogen bomb test over the Pacific Ocean", North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told reporters in NY on Thursday in response to a question about what action the regime might take against the U.S. He has also said that previous US presidents allowed the North to develop its nuclear weapon.

Believe it or not, Kim's statement actually used gentler language than his propaganda specialists have favored in the past. He described the president as "a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire".

Lee is from Goesan, South Korea and her family still lives there. It also called Obama a "monkey".

But the original is nearly as odd as the translation: the North Korean leader referred to Mr Trump as a "늙다리미치광이" ("neulg-dali-michigwang-i"), which translates as an "old beast lunatic" according to a South Korean journalist.

Earlier, Mr Kim's comments had prompted swift criticism from the Japanese government.

Lt. Col. Ralph Peters on Friday said if North Korea tested a nuclear bomb in the Pacific Ocean it would be the closest the Hermit Kingdom has come to committing an act of war.

For North Korea, the threats to overturn of the social system and "regime change" have always been in their comfort zone, as they did not expect a US president to actually act militarily against them.

Trump's threats have given Pyongyang just what it craves: The chance to show Kim standing toe-to-toe with America.

His remarks which described the US option through straightforward expression of his will have convinced me, rather than frightening or stopping me, that the path I chose is correct and that it is the one I have to follow to the last. After all, he typically leaves the threats to his propaganda mavens and lower-level officials.

Responding to the speech, Kim said Trump's comments amounted to an insult. Because the US president was speaking publicly on the world stage at the U.N., Kim thought he'd resort to "stereo-typed, prepared remarks a little different from what he used to utter in his office on the spur of the moment".

Kim offered some unsolicited advice to Trump as well. "I'd like to advise Trump to exercise prudence in selecting words and to be considerate of whom he speaks to when making a speech in front of the world", Kim said.

After taking office Trump has rendered the world restless through threats and blackmail against all countries in the world.
