President Trump was unimpressed with the threat-riddled speech given by the North Korean foreign minister at the UN on Saturday, and warned that if the threats keep up, they “won’t be around much longer”.
“Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N.,” the president tweeted late Saturday. “If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won’t be around much longer!”
North Korean foreign minister Ri Yong Ho on Saturday called Trump “a mentally deranged person full of megalomania,” and also asserted that a strike on the US mainland was “inevitable”.
Trump hasn’t wavered from the sentiment that he will order the full on destruction of North Korea if necessary, and the rogue state isn’t afraid to return the fiery rhetoric. Trump has pegged Kim Jong Un “little rocket man” in response.
“Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn’t mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!” the president tweeted.
In terms of tangible consequences for North Korea, Trump announced further economic sanctions, this time targeting any multinational corporations that still work with the beleaguered foreign nation.
“North Korea’s nuclear weapons and missile development is a grave threat to peace and security in our world and it is unacceptable that others financially support this criminal, rogue regime,” Trump said as he joined Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae-in for a meeting in New York.
However, the most important sanction could come from China in the banking sector. If actually enforced, it would severely impede the North’s ability to continue funding its nuclear weapons program.
So far, however, military force remains just a threat.
