As President Trump prepares to set foot for the primary time on the Korean Peninsula, North Korea rolled out its twisted model of the purple carpet, mocking Trump as a “lunatic old man” and sparking fears a missile or nuke check could possibly be imminent.
“No one can predict when the lunatic old man of the White House, lost to senses, will start a nuclear war against [North Korea],” the regime’s state-run Korean Central News Agency said in a statement Monday. “The U.S. shouldn’t count on us to make any change.”
The Hermit Kingdom, referencing dictator Kim Jong Un, stated an “outstanding leader” will decide the nation’s future. Without “distinguished leadership,” North Korea would have “fallen a victim to the invasion by the barbarous U.S. imperialists.”
