North Korea’s foreign minister assailed US president Donald Trump at the United Nations on Saturday, deriding him as a ‘mentally deranged’ leader whose threats had increased the chances of military confrontation.
Ri Yong-ho told the General Assembly that Trump’s vow to ‘totally destroy’ his country if necessary had made ‘our rockets’ visit to the entire US mainland all the more inevitable.’
Describing Trump as a ‘mentally deranged person full of megalomania,’ Ri said the US leader who ‘holds the nuclear button’ posed ‘the gravest threat to international peace and security today.’
In his first address to the General Assembly on Tuesday, Trump called leader Kim Jong-Un a ‘Rocket Man’ on a ‘suicide mission,’ prompting Kim to warn in turn that the US president would ‘pay dearly’ for his threat.
Ri accused Trump of turning the United Nations into a ‘gangsters’ nest where money is respected and bloodshed is the order of the day,’ and of insulting Kim.
