Donald Trump continues to play with fire and put America in danger when it comes to relations with North Korea. As recently as yesterday, Trump was tweeting on his 17-day vacation and making threats of nuclear attacks to the regime. Trump tweeted:
“My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal. It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before. Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world!”
Today, North Korea has responded, once again defying Trump’s previous threat of “fire and fury.” North Korea issued a concerning statement, making it perfectly clear that it was ignoring Trump and moving forward on “seriously examining” a plan for an “enveloping strike at Guam”.
The statement further insulted Trump by calling his threats “a load of nonsense” and claimed that “only absolute force” can work on the United States thanks to its moronic POTUS.
“Such a guy bereft of reason and only absolute force can work on him.”

While North Korea couldn’t be more correct about Trump and his inability to reason like an adult, this is heightening the situation to dangerous measures. Trump is so unstable, there is no doubt that he will react far worse to North Korea making fun of him.
