- Donald Trump issues strong warning to Kim Jong-Un from South Korea.
- Trump says nuclear weapons are putting Kim's regime in North Korea in grave danger.
- North Korea is a country ruled by a cult.
The President of the United States of America Donald Trump has issued a strong warning to North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un while addressing the South Korean
government during a two day visit and shortly before he embarked on a State visit to China.
Trump warned his North Korean counterpart that his regime was in grave danger if he continued on the current path of developing his nuclear programme.
“Do not underestimate us and do not try us,” Trump told North Korea as he wrapped up a visit to South Korea with a speech to the National Assembly before heading to Beijing, where he was making his first official visit.
“We will not allow American cities to be threatened with destruction. We will not be intimidated,” he told South Korean lawmakers. “And we will not let the worst atrocities in history be repeated here, on this ground we fought and died to secure.”
“The world cannot tolerate the menace of a rogue regime that threatens it with nuclear devastation,” Trump said, speaking as three U.S. aircraft carrier groups sailed to the Western Pacific for exercises - a rare show of such U.S. naval force in the region.
During his speech in Seoul, Trump aimed his words directly at Kim.
“The weapons that you are acquiring are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger. Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face.”
“North Korea is a country ruled by a cult,” Trump said in a speech that was interrupted several times by applause and ended with a standing ovation.
“To those nations that choose to ignore this threat or, worse still, to enable it, the weight of this crisis is on your conscience,” he said.
President Trump has now arrived in China on Wednesday where he is expected to discuss bilateral trade and also the North Korean threat.
