Say What? Kim Jong Un Calls Trump a 'Dotard'

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un mocked Trump as "mentally deranged" - and warned that he will make the U.S. president "pay dearly" for threatening the destruction of his country at the United Nations.

The rhetorical battle came as outside experts say North Korea is getting closer to achieve its long-stated goal of building nuclear-armed missiles capable hitting anywhere in the US mainland.

But North Korea's top diplomat, Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho, on Thursday likened Mr Trump's comments to "the sound of a barking dog".

The rhetorical battle came as outside experts say North Korea is getting closer to achieve its long-stated goal of building nuclear-armed missiles capable of hitting anywhere on the USA mainland. "Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime", Trump said earlier this week.

Along with the announcement, Trump said China's central bank has told other banks in the country to immediately stop doing business with North Korea. Though the majority of North Korea's imports come from China, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said "This action is directed at everyone" and the steps are "in no way specifically directed at China". "For much too long, North Korea has been able to abuse the worldwide financial system", to finance its nuclear ambitions, he said.

Trump said that North Korea had abused the financial system to fund their nuclear weapons programs and continued threatening their neighbors.

Another fire department official, Soiman Jahid, said firefighters heard shouts for help when they arrived at the school . When met by theSun , a relative said the remains of a 14-year-old student had been identified by his mother.

North Korea's leader has issued a fierce broadside against Donald Trump whom he described as a "dotard" who is "hard of hearing".

Lavrov also urged Europe and the United States to work together with Russian Federation on the UN Security Council resolution it sponsored on peacekeepers in the Donbas region. North Korea has fired missiles over the coast of Japan, and has tested atomic weapons. "We will not seek unification by absorption or artificial means", Moon said.

During their talks that lasted for about an hour, the three leaders agreed to lobby other U.N. member nations, including China and Russian Federation, which have called for greater dialogue with North Korea, to fully implement a U.N. Security Council agreement concerning North Korea.

"I think the situation in North Korea is extremely serious", Trudeau replied.

Trump had earlier mentioned the term "Rocket Man" in a tweet, mocking the "long gas lines" forming at North Korean gas stations due to a shortage of gasoline in the country.
