US President Donald Trump may claim he would never insult Kim Jong Un, but North Korea clearly thinks differently.
A furious commentary published in a state-run newspaper Wednesday said Trump had displayed his “true colors as an old lunatic, mean trickster and human reject” during his recent visit to the Korean Peninsula.
In an address to South Korea’s parliament last week, Trump criticized North Korean leader Kim and the “dark fantasy” at the heart of his regime.
“The worst crime for which he can never be pardoned is that he dared malignantly hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of (North Korea),” the Rodong Sinmun commentary said.
“Trump, who is no more than an old slave of money, dared point an accusing finger at the sun. He should know that he is just a hideous criminal sentenced to death by the Korean people. He will be forced to pay dearly for his blasphemy any moment.”
Rodong Sinmun is the official newspaper of North Korea’s ruling Workers’ Party, and the commentary was also published by state news agency KCNA.
