North Korea is still outraged that President Donald Trump dared to insult “the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK,” North Korean state media reported Sunday.
The U.S. will regret “letting such a depraved and stupid guy occupy the Oval Office,” the Korean Central News Agency reported, citing the Minju Joson. The regime’s criticisms come on the heels of Trump’s speech in South Korea, during which he addressed Kim directly and called North Korea a “hell that no one deserves.” The president also tweeted at Kim, taking pot shots at his decidedly short stature and growing waistline.
Speaking in South Korea, Trump painted a bleak picture of life in North Korea, highlighting the North’s long history of atrocities and human rights violations. “North Korea is not the paradise your grandfather envisioned,” Trump said, speaking directly to Kim. “It is a hell that no person deserves.” The president accused Kim of committing crimes “against God and man.”
“It is a stark reality that the old and ailing U.S. is heading toward the hell,” the Rodong Sinmun, the newspaper of the ruling worker’s party, wrote in a separate article. “Trump must clearly understand that his rubbish is leading the U.S., to say nothing of himself, to irretrievable road to the hell.”
