North Korea finally issued a response to President Trump’s tweet calling Kim Jong Un “short” and “fat,” and it’s not good, according to BizPacReview.
Trump has apparently been “sentenced to death by the Korean people.”
Here’s Trump’s tweet:
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!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 12, 2017
Check out the response (via Fox News):
“The worst crime for which [Trump] can never be pardoned is that he dared [to] malignantly hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership,” the editorial stated. “Trump, who is no more than an old slave of money, dared point an accusing finger at the sun.”
It added: “[Trump] should know that he is just a hideous criminal sentenced to death by the Korean people.”
The fiery back-and-forth came in response to a powerful speech against the regime that Trump gave during his time in South Korea.
“We will not allow American cities to be threatened with destruction. We will not be intimidated,” President Trump said. “The world cannot tolerate the menace of a rogue regime that threatens it with nuclear devastation.”

But North Korea wrote the words off as “rubbish,” asserting that “Rabid dog’s barking can never frighten the Korean people. It is the principle and way of [North Korea] to toughly react to any acts of hostility.”
