North Korea Just Sentenced Donald Trump To Death
North Korea has sentenced Donald Trump to death for insulting their leader, Kim Jong-un.
The state media said the President of the US deserved the death penalty and also called him a coward for cancelling the visit to the Korean DMZ.
The statements came from the ruling party newspaper Rodong Sinmum, in which they admonished Donald Trump for his visit to South Korea just last week.
According to The Guardian, the editorial said:
The worst crime for which he can never be pardoned is that he dared [to] malignantly hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership.
He should know that he is just a hideous criminal sentenced to death by the Korean people.
This comes after a slightly bizarre exchange of words between the two leaders, which culminated in a tweet from the US President saying he would never call him ‘short and fat’.
The North Korean paper also lodged a dig at Trump for his failed attempt to go to the DMZ due to bad weather.
The paper claimed it wasn’t the weather which resulted in the cancelled visit, but Trump’s cowardice to ‘face the glaring eyes of our troops’.
This also comes after North Korea reportedly sent a chilling warning to Vladimir Putin regarding a nuclear attack on the US.

Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin, then passed the info straight to Washington, which has resulted in a change of approach from President Donald Trump.
However, officials from the Kremlin have denied any such knowledge of a personal correspondence between Kim Jong-un and their Commander in Chief, Vladimir Putin.
The message was apparently conveyed between the two nations by a letter, though the existence of such a letter has been denied officially.
This comes as Putin meets with Trump in Vietnam today – all with the spectre of nuclear war hanging over their heads.
It wouldn’t be the first time letters have been used as forms of communication from North Korea – Russia’s Chairwoman of the Federation Council, Valentina Matvienko, admitted she’d received a letter directly addressed to Putin just last month, reports Sputnik.
It seems there’s some truth in the claims about the de-escalation of correspondence between Donald Trump and the leader of the DPRK, after Trump tweeted he one day wanted to be friends with Kim.
Previously, he’s famously promised ‘fire and fury’ unlike anything the world has ever seen and has even promised to ‘totally destroy’ the so-called Communist state.
However, during his tour of Asia, Trump has dialled-back these incendiary statements and urged North Korea to engage in talks with the rest of the world.
However, he did lay down this warning:
This is a very different administration than the United States has had in the past. Do not underestimate us. And do not try us.
Putin has also made attempts at soothing the situation and has urged both the US and North Korea to come to the table for talks, saying:
First of all, halt the rhetoric, then halt all the manifestations of aggression from all the sides and sitting down at the negotiation table eventually.
It’s currently unknown what the nuclear capabilities of the ‘rogue’ state are, despite constant threats coming from the hermit nation.
