United States President Donald Trump has warned North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to be careful as he has a nuclear button that works.
Trump made the comment in response to Kim’s New Year speech, where he said a nuclear launch button was on his table, in readiness for the United States.
In the televised speech, Kim said the entire US was within range of Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons, adding: “This is reality, not a threat.”
And Trump tweeted late Tuesday (Wednesday morning in Nigeria) that the US nuclear button was much bigger and more powerful than Kim’s.
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!
