20 September 2017

Donald Trump has taken a swipe at North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, labelling him "Rocket Man" following the secretive state's controversial missile tests.

She said: "At this stage we can not know Kim's true intentions - what we do know is that despite the condemnation and the global sanctions, he shows absolutely no sign of voluntarily abandoning his nuclear or missile programmes".

Trump has threatened to rain "fire and fury" on North Korea if the North continues with its threats.

"If North Korea does not have UDMH, it can not threaten the United States, it's as simple as that", said Sen.

"This regime is so close now to threatening the United States and others with a nuclear weapon, that we really have to move with a great sense of urgency on sanctions, on diplomacy and preparing, if necessary, a military option", McMaster told the "Fox News Sunday" program.

"If I were giving the president advice, I would have said avoid using 'Rocket Man, '" Schumer said during a press conference at the U.S. Capitol.

"If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behavior, if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed and we all know that and none of us want that", Haley said. North Korea also recently tested what it said was a hydrogen bomb. He said the launch was part of the country's plan to achieve "equilibrium of real force" with the US. "Too bad!" Trump said on Twitter.
