Kim Jong-Un Just Clapped Back At Donald Trump

By: Stacy Omosa

In response to President Donald Trump’s speech full of threats at the United Nations, North Korean Leader Kim Jong-Un spoke on his state run new agency to further insult Trump.

Trump previously stated that “the United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime.”

Kim Jong-Un, obviously offended, fought back with harsh words. He said “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.” Even though those in America and abroad alike want President Trump to be considerate of what he says and who he directs it to, the world sadly doesn’t always get what it wants.

Later, Kim Jong-Un stated, "Action is the best option in treating the dotard who, hard of hearing, is uttering only what he wants to say,” and, “I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire.” Kim Jong Un taught a lot of people a new word with that statement: so, what does it mean?

The word Dotard refers to a weak, senile older person. SO, what Kim Jong-Un wanted to say about Trump’s character was that he is an insane old man. Literally someone not sane enough for the U.S presidency.

However, no matter how you feel about Trump of Kim Jong-Un, it is truly shocking to see world leaders speaking to each other this way. What’s even more shocking is that these two have access to nuclear weapons. Trump more so than Kim Jong-Un,  and is nevertheless threatening to wipe out an entire country in front of the United Nations.  It's clear this is not how to approach calming the nuclear crisis between North Korea and The United States.

Kim- Jong-Un’s insult is for sure going to get under Trump’s skin, as we have seen in the past, these are the types of moments it's easy to predict Trump will lash out with more petty behavior.
