The feud between US president Donald Trump and North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong-un has again made headlines.
This time North Korea’s state media has declared that Trump should be awarded a death penalty for his recent tweets regarding Kim. They also called him a coward for not visiting the inter-Korean border.
Rodong Sinmun, the leading newspaper of the ruling party of North Korea, came out with an article which condemned Trumps visit to South Korea.
Trump’s visit was part of a marathon five-nation Asia tour with an attempt to focus on the cruel dictatorship of the North Korean leader and make a statement against the nuclear ambitions of the country.
The North Koreans hit back by saying that Trumps gesture of hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership is an unpardonable offense which results in a death sentence. He is now a hideous criminal sentenced to death by the Korean people.
Trump has been vocal against the North Korean dictatorship since the beginning of his electoral campaign and after becoming president he has traded personal insults and threatened war against them.
Trump’s tweet targeted at Kim Jong taunted him over his height and weight. Trump wrote that although Kim calls him old, he would never call him short and fat. This statement didn’t go well with the supporters of Kim who is considered a god by many in his country.
Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me "old," when I would NEVER call him "short and fat?" Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!

The article of Rodong Simun took a dig at trumps cancelled visit to the demilitarised zone (DMZ). This is the border of two Koreas. They wrote that Trump was too afraid to look into the glaring eyes of North Korean soldiers.
