Kim Jong Un is obviously a “madman” – Trump says after signing new executive sanctions on North Korea

Various reactions and counter-reactions continue to trail President Trump’s warning of a possible destruction of North Korea if the US is forced to defend itself or its allies.

Earlier Thursday night, Kim Jong Un labelled the US President as mentally deranged and threatened Trump would pay dearly for threatening the communist country.

According to South Korea’s Yonhap news agency, the country's foreign minister said, “There is a saying that the marching goes on even when dogs bark,” citing a Korean proverb.

“If he was thinking he could scare us with the sound of a dog barking, that’s really a dog dream,” he added. In Korean, a dog dream is one that makes little sense.

When asked what he thought of Trump’s description of Kim as rocket man, Ri replied, “I feel sorry for his aides.”

Trump on Friday in a tweet described the North Korea leader as a “madman”. He wrote, “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!”

President Trump on Thursday signed an executive order targeting any individual, companies or financial institution which conducts significant transactions with North Korea. The order authorises Treasury department to freeze the account of any company that flouts the order.

Trump reiterated the words he used in his address to world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly that the various missile test and weapon development by the North regime is a threat to global peace.

He wrote in a tweet, “Today, I announced a new Executive Order with re: to North Korea. We must all do our part to ensure the complete denuclearization of #NoKo.”
Trump said the lawless North Korea government does not respect the sovereignty of other nations. Therefore, he authorised the Treasury to use its discretion in clamping down on any company or financial institutions making significant trades such as textile production, manufacturing and IT with the Asian country.

The President’s action is aimed at halting funding that has afforded the regime the capacity to continue with his nuclear power pursuit. Trump said America and other nations have watched North Korea grown dangerously for 25 years and done nothing. He hammered that “the era of disgraceful practice ends now”.

The US President disclosed and equally commended the surprising latest move by China through its central bank ordering other Chinese banks to stop trading with North Korea. Trump.

In conclusion, Trump while noting some countries’ diplomatic and economic steps to curb Kim Jong Un’s menace, also called on other world leaders to join hands with the US and mount pressure on North Korea to ensure its denuclearisation.

In response to the order, North Korea foreign minister Ri Yong revealed the possible test of another hydrogen bomb which will fly over Japan territory to demonstrate its capacity to reach the US mainland of Alaska and Hawaii.
