North Korea's Kim Jong-Un Calls Donald Trump A 'Dotard'

North Korea's Kim Jong-Un Calls Donald Trump A 'Dotard'”

Others have suggested "old beast lunatic" as another translation.

"North Korea has continued to make provocations and this is extremely deplorable and this has angered both me and our people", Moon said.

Trump called it "a lucky word'".

Ri did not respond when asked by reporters whether North Korea had conducted a new nuclear test.

Many anti-Trump users had a field day highlighting that the US President's twitter account is now the first that comes up in the search box when looking up "dotard".

Mnuchin declined to say exactly what the United States was seeking from North Korea, but said the country must "stop their missile tests and give up their nuclear weapons". The rare statement from the North Korean leader responded to Trump's combative speech days earlier where he not only issued the warning of potential obliteration for the isolated nation, but also mocked the North's young autocrat as a "Rocket Man" on a "suicide mission".

Trump has responded by driving a raft of new tough sanctions on Pyongyang and engaging in blistering rhetoric, culminating in Tuesday's United Nations address, where he said Washington would "totally destroy" North Korea if the U.S. or its allies were threatened. The depth of the quake was 5 kilometers (3.1 miles).

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

"It is only a forlorn hope to consider any chance that the DPRK (North Korea) would be shaken an inch or change its stance due to the harsher sanctions by the hostile forces", he said.

"Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!" the president tweeted.

US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said he had spoken with the head of China's central bank.

"I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire", Kim said. "Analysis ongoing", CTBTO Executive Secretary Lassina Zerbo said in a Twitter post, referring to the September 3 test.

North Korea has been maintaining a torrid pace in nuclear and weapons tests as it accelerates its pursuit of nuclear weapons that could viably target the United States and its allies in Asia.

North Korea also produces coal, some $1.2bn of which was exported to China in 2016, but China had already strictly limited its imports of North Korean coal earlier this year.

The United States Geological Survey was neutral in its assessment on the cause of the tremor, which it recorded as a 3.5 magnitude quake, saying in a statement that it could not "conclusively confirm at this time the nature (natural or human-made) of the event".
