Chelsea Handler Suggests Trading Trump for 'More Sane' Kim Jong Un

Chelsea Handler Suggests Trading Trump for 'More Sane' Kim Jong Un

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho, who had earlier compared Mr Trump's speech to "the sound of a barking dog", has warned that Pyongyang could test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean in response to the USA president's threat.

North Korea's foreign minister later was quoted as saying his country could retaliate by detonating a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean.

Kim said that Trump's remarks had convinced him that the path he has chosen is correct and he will follow it.

Kim Jong Un has called Donald Trump's UN speech a "declaration of war" and says he'll make the United States president pay for threatening to destroy North Korea.

"North Korea's nuclear programme is a grave threat to peace and security in our world, and it is unacceptable that others financially support this criminal, rogue regime", Trump said in a press briefing, who was accompanied with the leaders of South Korea and Japan.

Kim vowed that he would make the United States president "pay dearly" for threatening to totally destroy North Korea.

On the fringes of the UN General Assembly in New York, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho told reporters Pyongyang might now consider detonating a hydrogen bomb outside its territory.

North Korea has put the worldwide community on alert over the past few months, conducting a slew of intercontinental ballistic missile tests, and sending two over Japanese airspace.

Meanwhile, the United States has added patrols of the region.

"We call on all countries around the world to join us by cutting off all trade and financial transactions with North Korea".

Trump had threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea in his first speech on the United Nations floor on Tuesday.

North Korea has repeatedly tested nuclear weapons and missiles potentially capable of carrying warheads since Trump's ascent to the presidency a year ago.

He described the reported decision as "very bold", adding that the North's textiles, fishing, IT and manufacturing industries are among those that could be targeted by his executive order.

President Trump may be using the decertifying threat as a means to reopen negotiations but Iran says the U.S.is looking for a way to break the deal and they will not return to the negotiating table.

"Whatever Trump might have expected, he will face results beyond his expectation", Kim Jong Un's statement continued.

Trump has become known for using language similar to that usually employed by North Korea.

North Korean diplomats were not present during Trump's speech, reports CNN.

And it bars aircraft and ships that have visited North Korea from stopping in the USA for 180 days.
