Kim Jong Un a 'madman' who 'will be tested like never before'

Kim Jong Un on Friday described Donald Trump as "deranged" and Pyongyang's foreign minister said North Korea may test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific as the recalcitrant nation hit back at the United States president after the latest attempt to curb its nuclear programme.

Mr Ri told reporters he had "no idea about what actions could be taken as it will be ordered by leader Kim Jong-un".

"I am now thinking hard about what response he could have expected when he allowed such eccentric words to trip off his tongue", Kim said.

Kim said he would consider the "highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history" against the USA and that Mr Trump's comments only confirmed his own nuclear program was "the correct path".

"I will make the man holding the prerogative of the supreme command in the USA pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying [North Korea]..."

Kim did not specify what action he would take against the United States or Mr Trump but described him as a "mentally deranged U.S. dotard". The word also doesn't appear much in literature, though Herman Melville used the word in a poem about a shark and William Shakespeare included it in a line from Much Ado About Nothing.

On Friday, web search engines the world over lit up with people looking for the obscure 14th century term "dotard", which the Oxford Dictionary defines as "an old person, especially one who has become weak or senile".

North Korean officials described Trump's speech as "the most outrageous declaration of war against our republic, " and said Trump's statements is "priming powder" that is setting "tens of millions civilians in ultra-response mode".

Kim said that Trump is "unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country".

North Korea had already tested a hydrogen bomb inside their own borders, but testing a nuclear device outside of its own lands would mark a major escalation in tensions.

But he added: "It is up to our leader so I do not know well".

The Hermit Kingdom already has Japan on edge after launching multiple missiles over the island nation.

Isolated and impoverished, the North says it needs a nuclear deterrent to protect it from an aggressive United States and the autocratic regime has made militarism a central part of its national ideology. Find us on Facebook too!
