Kim Jong Un calls Trump 'dotard,' ramps up war of words

Trump, during a speech at the United Nations General Assembly earlier this week, warned the US would "totally destroy" North Korea if Pyongyang continued its provocative actions, leading North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to up the ante by calling Trump "deranged".

Late Wednesday, North Korea's foreign minister responded to the threat by comparing Trump's comments to a "barking dog". Speaking at the United Nations general assembly in NY, she called for the world's leading powers to intensify efforts to force Kim Jong-un to abandon his nuclear programme, reported Inews.

Mr Trump said North Korea's textiles, fishing, information technology, and manufacturing industries were among those the United States could target. "Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime", Trump said earlier this week.

Trump also expressed his appreciation to China, which recently told its banks that they could no longer do 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".

"North Korea has no intention whatsoever, of abandoning its nuclear or missile development", Abe said.

Mr Trump said the measure would also disrupt other trade avenues for North Korea in efforts to halt its nuclear weapons program.

The North Korean dictator concluded his comments with a final threat to Trump and the USA: "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire".

Trump would make the announcement about economic penalties on Friday during a meeting NY with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, U.S. officials said.

Donald Trump is "deranged" and will "pay dearly" for his threats, according to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

President Trump signed an executive order on Thursday created to choke North Korea's economy.

"That would be a disaster beyond compare for the region, for the people of North Korea, who have no dog in this fight, who are just trying to feed themselves", he told reporters in Perth on Friday. "It was a somewhat unexpected move and we appreciate it".

The ongoing war of words between the two leaders on opposite sides of the Pacific have been exacerbated in recent months amid growing tension over North Korea's nuclear weapons build-up. "If North Korea makes a decision even now to stand on the right side of history, we are ready to assist North Korea together with the global community".
