Trump Threatens to ‘Totally Destroy’ North Korea in Speech to UN

Also calls Kim Jong Un as “rocket man” in the speech at the UN:

In his speech before the United Nations’ general assembly in New York on Tuesday morning, President Donald Trump referred to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un as “rocket man,” just as he did in a tweet over the weekend.

“Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime,” Trump said in his speech while discussing how the United States could react to North Korea’s attempts to obtain a nuclear weapon.

“The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself for its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,” the President said. “The United States is ready, willing, and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary.”
