Kim Jong-un is not handling the “short and fat” remarks by President Trump very well. In response North Korea “sentences Trump to death.”
President Trump just wrapped up a 12-day trip across Asia. While in South Korea, he gave a powerful speech that included a warning to North Korea dictator Kim Jong-un to not mess with the United States or its allies.
“The weapons you are acquiring are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger,” Trump said while speaking at South Korea’s National Assembly in Seoul. “Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face.”
That wasn’t enough, though. Trump did what he does and took it a step further on Twitter.
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!

North Korea’s response? Their state media has called for the death penalty for Trump. They also called him a coward for cancelling a visit that was scheduled to the Demilitarized Zone that sits between South and North Korea. In actuality, fog stopped the visit, forcing the helicopter to turn around.
Per Daily Wire:
In an editorial in the state-controlled newspaper Rodong Sinmun, North Korea said Trump should be executed.
“The worst crime for which he can never be pardoned is that he dared [to] malignantly hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership,” the editorial said.
“He should know that he is just a hideous criminal sentenced to death by the Korean people,” it added.
On the scrubbed trip, the paper said: “It wasn’t the weather. He was just too scared to face the glaring eyes of our troops.”
Kim had disappeared for two-months, holding no public events. But the day the editorial came out, Kim visited a tractor factory which he claimed produced products made mainly with locally produced parts, despite punitive sanctions against the nation.
North Korean officials described Trump’s trip as “nothing but a business trip by a warmonger to enrich the monopolies of the US defense industry.”
“Trump, during his visit, laid bare his true nature as destroyer of the world peace and stability and begged for a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula,” the nation’s foreign ministry said in a statement.
More tough talk from a nation that is incapable of actually taking any action. Why would any world leader in their right mind go near North Korea?
