"Whatever Trump might have expected, he will face results beyond his expectation", Kim said. He also said if the U.S.

South Korea said it was the first direct statement of its kind by a North Korean leader. The order would penalize any company or person doing business with North Korea.

Trump's executive order expanded the Treasury Department's ability to target anyone conducting significant trade in goods, services or technology with North Korea, and to ban them from interacting with the USA financial system.
