North Korea has responded to President Donald Trump’s designation of Jerusalem as Israel’s eternal capital by once again calling Trump a “dotard” and by labeling the decision both “reckless” and “wicked.”
It’s no secret that there’s some bad blood between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, and comments from a North Korean foreign ministry spokesman through the restrictive state’s KCNA media further illustrate that heated dynamic.
“Considering the fact that the mentally deranged dotard openly called for a total destruction of a sovereign state at the UN, this action is not so surprising” the spokesman said, according to AFP. “But this move clearly shows to the whole world who is the destroyer of world peace and security, pariah and rogue in the international community.”
And the statement didn’t end there, as North Korea affirmed its support for Arabs and Palestinians looking to “win their legitimate rights” and once again issued a warning to America.
“The U.S. will be held accountable for all consequences from this reckless, wicked act,” the spokesman said.
North Korea’s use of the word “wicked” is intriguing, considering the country’s own record of human rights abuses.
As Faithwire has extensively documented, the restrictive regime has been known to torture and kill anyone who dissents, including Christians and other minorities.
Dramatic security footage recently showed how a 24-year-old North Korean soldier was repeatedly shot by guards as he desperately tried to escape the restrictive country by bravely fleeing over the border into South Korea. Other recent reports have claimed that officials have banned events that focus on singing, dancing and drinking.
