The North Korean government said Saturday that Donald Trump’s first trip to Asia showed he’s itching for all-out Armageddon on the Korean peninsula.
‘Trump, during his visit, laid bare his true nature as destroyer of world peace and stability and begged for a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula,’ the hermit nation’s foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement carried by the state news agency.
‘Trump made his conceived attempt yet again to alienate our people from the government,’ he said.
The North Korean spokesman said it will not be possible to deter Pyongyang from pursuing a fully fledged nuclear weapons program.
The U.S. president said Wednesday in Seoul, South Korea that the ‘sinister regime’ to the North has become a dangerous menace, and warned dictator Kim Jong-un not to test his patience.
‘Today, I hope I speak not only for our countries, but for all civilized nations, when I say to the North: Do not underestimate us. And do not try us,’ he told South Korea’s National Assembly in an impassioned speech.
Addressing a global audience, he insisted Wednesday that ‘the world cannot tolerate the menace of a rogue regime that threatens it with nuclear devastation.’
‘All responsible nations must join forces to isolate the brutal regime of North Korea – to deny it any form of support, supply, or acceptance.’
