North Korea has lambasted President Donald Trump for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, renewing its description of him as a ‘dotard’ in a statement released Saturday on state media.
Trump and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un have traded threats of war and personal insults in recent months as tensions remain high over the North’s missile and nuclear threats.
Now the hermit state has joined near-universal condemnation of the president’s decision on Jerusalem, calling it a ‘reckless, wicked act’.
‘Considering the fact that the mentally deranged dotard openly called for a total destruction of a sovereign state at the UN, this action is not so surprising’, a foreign ministry spokesman was quoted as saying by the state-run KCNA news agency.
‘But this move clearly shows to the whole world who is the destroyer of world peace and security, pariah and rogue in the international community’, he said, using epithets usually reserved for the North.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed not to accept “double standard” from Europe on US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Muslim terrorists continued rioting for the third day on Saturday in Jerusalem, Judea-Samaria and Gaza in response to US President Donald Trump’s declaration earlier this week recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
