Trump trades insults with ‘madman’ North Korean leader Kim Jong Un

President Trump labeled North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un a “madman” hours after announcing new sanctions on the rogue regime.

The comments, sent in a tweet early Friday morning, appeared to be a reaction to the North Korean leader’s dismissal of Trump in his own statement on Thursday night.

“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!” Trump tweeted.

Earlier, Kim directed his own insults at Trump, whom he called a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard.”

The back-and-forth between the United States and North Korea is the latest in a series of events escalating tensions between the two nations.

Trump ratcheted up the rhetoric against North Korea during a U.N. General Assembly meeting in New York this week, calling on allies, including China, to do more to isolate Kim.
