North Korea says targeting the U.S. mainland with its rockets is inevitable after "Mr Evil President" Donald Trump called Pyongyang's leader "rocket man", further escalating rhetoric over the North's nuclear weapons and missile programs.
In a personal statement, Kim slammed what he called the "mentally deranged behavior of the USA president", adding he would make Mr. Trump "pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying the DPRK".
"North Korea's nuclear weapons and missile development is a grave threat to peace and security in our world, and it is unacceptable that others financially support this criminal rogue regime", he said.
Kim on Friday threatened the "highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history" in a tirade against Trump's warning that Washington would "totally destroy" the North if the USA or its allies were threatened. Last week Trump referred to Kim as "rocket man" and said the United States would "totally destroy" North Korea if America or its allies were attacked.
He added: "We will consider with seriousness exercising a corresponding, highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history".
'I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged United States dotard with fire, ' Kim said in the rare direct statement, referring to Trump.
