North Korea Describes Trump’s Warning As “Load Of Nonsense”
North Korea’s state-run television KRT on Thursday (August 10) described U.S. President Donald Trump as “senile” and his threat as a “load of nonsense”, referring to Trump’s “fire and fury” warning.
Trump said on Tuesday (August 8) North Korea “will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen” if it threatened the United States again.
Following Trump’s comments, North Korea said on Thursday it was completing plans to fire four intermediate-range missiles over Japan to land near the U.S. Pacific island territory of Guam in an unusually detailed threat that further heightened tensions with the United States.
North Korea continued its attacks on Trump with the KRT saying, “The U.S. commander-in-chief who was on a golf course again let out a load of nonsense about ‘fire and fury’, failing to realise the ongoing grave situation. This is extremely getting on the nerves of our infuriated Hwasong (North Korean tactical ballistic missile) artillerymen.”
“We cannot have a sound dialogue with a senile man who can’t think rationally and only absolute force can work on him. This is the judgment made by our soldiers of the Strategic Force,”
The reclusive communist country, technically still at war with the United States and South Korea after the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended with a truce and not a peace treaty, is known for making bellicose threats.
