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.
