In a recent speech welcoming the new year, the North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has stated that the United States would not start a war against his country, as he has nuclear weapons capable to reach anywhere in the US. Claiming to have a nuclear button on his desk, Kim stated that it’s ‘a reality and not a threat.’
Donald Trump took to twitter to respond against Kim & his New Years’ speech, here’s what he had to say :
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

In the speech welcoming 2018 Kim also says what he plans to do this year which is focus on mass producing nuclear warheads & ballistic missiles for ‘operational deployment’. Kim has also agreed to talk & open doors to South Korea for high-level talks in search for reconciliation and unity declaring his hope “for (a) peaceful resolution with our southern border.”
North Korean representatives will also start talks with their South Korean counterparts as soon as possible about sending a delegation to the 2018 Winter Games next month in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Which the South Korean president welcomed & called for swift measures to help North Korea participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics.
