Over the course of his first year in government, President Donald Trump has shown at every point in time that he is not afraid of anybody.
The often controversial President of the United States talks a big game and he has certainly proven over time that he isn’t afraid to back his words up with action.
Donald Trump has clashed with many prominent figures within and outside the United States including a long-running war of words with North Korea’s number one political figure Kim Jong-Un.
The pair have repeatedly clashed with each other, with different shots fired at themselves via social media and through media outlets.
Although the pair haven’t met each other in person before, they certainly hold an immense amount of animosity toward each other.
The latest in the tug of war between two of the world’s most powerful political figures came after Kim taunted the US in his New Year’s address to his country.
The people’s leader Kim Jong-Un taunted the U.S, telling its government not to forget that the button for nuclear weapons is on his office table.
It wouldn’t have been so far-fetched to think that there was no way President Trump would take the taunt lying down and he didn’t.
In a couple of tweets aimed at Kim Jong-Un, President Trump warned North Korea on Tuesday that he has access to a ‘bigger & more powerful’ nuclear button than Kim Jong-Un’s.
Trump warned the hermit country,
‘North Korean Leader Kim Jong-Un just stated that the ”Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.’ Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!’
These trade-off of shots followed a warning that North Korea might be staging another nuclear test.
US Ambassador, Nikki Haley told reporters that the US had heard North Korea might be planning another missile launch.
Haley told reporters the United States was hearing reports that North Korea might be preparing to fire another missile.
‘I hope that doesn’t happen. But if it does, we must bring even tougher measures to bear against the North Korean regime’
A U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said there were indications that could point towards a potential missile launch ‘sooner rather than later,’ but cautioned that such signs had been seen in the past and no test had resulted.
In the interim, Kim Jong-Un warned America that it can ‘never start a war against me and our country’ and insisted his nukes are now a reality, not a threat.
Ever since they assumed power, the pair have literally been in a game of cat and mouse.
Kim and Trump have exchanged fiery barbs in the last year and the U.S. president has warned that the United States would have no choice but to ‘totally destroy’ North Korea if forced to defend itself or its allies.
North Korea also regularly threatens to destroy the United States, South Korea, and Japan and tested its most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile in November, which it said was capable of delivering a warhead anywhere in the United States.
