Various reactions and counter-reactions continue to trail President Trump’s warning of a possible destruction of North Korea if the US is forced to defend itself or its allies.
Earlier Thursday night, Kim Jong Un labelled the US President as mentally deranged and threatened Trump would pay dearly for threatening the communist country.
Trump on Friday in a tweet described the North Korea leader as a “madman”. He wrote, “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!”

President Trump on Thursday signed an executive order targeting any individual, companies or financial institution which conducts significant transactions with North Korea. The order authorises Treasury department to freeze the account of any company that flouts the order.
In response to the order, North Korea foreign minister Ri Yong revealed the possible test of another hydrogen bomb which will fly over Japan territory to demonstrate its capacity to reach the US mainland of Alaska and Hawaii.
