The secluded country at the heart of a back-and-forth with President Donald Trump is calling for him to be legally executed. North Korean media outlets released a statement in retaliation for comments the President made just last week, when he called dictator Kim Jong Un “short and fat” on Twitter. The announcement officially means that, for perhaps the first time ever, posts on Twitter could very well incite an outright war between two countries. Both leaders parried insults back and forth over recent weeks, as Trump traveled throughout five Asian countries, only to later cancel a visit to the border. Kim Jong Un also called the President, “old.”
- The message was posted in Rodong Sinmun, a local editorial newspaper in North Korea. It read: “The worst crime for which he can never be pardoned is that he dared [to] malignantly hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership. He should know that he is just a hideous criminal sentenced to death by the Korean people.”
- Trump also called Kim Jong Un a “cruel dictator” and accused him of running the North Korean people “like a cult.” NK fired back by calling Trump a warmonger and a dotard.”
- Despite the barbs, Trump responded encouragingly by suggesting they may one day reconcile. “Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me ‘old,’ when I would NEVER call him ‘short and fat?’ Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!” Trump posted last Saturday.
- Though Trump did cancel his trip to the border, it was not out of “fear” (as was suggested by North Korean leadership). Instead, the trip was cancelled due to bad weather.
- The same editorial calling for his death suggested this claim was false. “It wasn’t the weather,” it said. “He was just too scared to face the glaring eyes of our troops.”
