The conflict between North Korea and the United States appear to be reaching a boiling point. Almost every day, the Communist country threatens to destroy the United States or her allies. Now President Trump is responding with a threat of his own, and it's likely not an idle one.
In a speech in front of the United Nations on Tuesday morning, President Trump explained what would happen if North Korea continued to threaten the United States. He said that if Kim Jong Un, who he simply referred to as "rocket man," continued his current path, then the United States would have no choice but to destroy the country.
"Rocket man is on a suicide mission," said Trump.
He continued by pointing out that, in preventing North Korea from getting nuclear weapons, he was acting in the interest of every nation.
"No nation on earth has an interest in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles. The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea."
He reiterated, "Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully, this will not be necessary."
President Trump highlighted the horrible living conditions of North Koreans. He also pointed to the nation's treatment of Otto Warmbier, a U.S. college student who was held in the nation. Likewise, President Trump underscored the morally depraved nature of their leader, who assassinated his brother to gain political power.
“If the righteous many do not confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph,” declared the president.
During the speech, Pres. Trump called on all nations to isolate the Kim regime. This is one way to curtail the leader's "reckless pursuit" of nuclear weapons, as well as discouraging the human rights abuses.
ABC News reports that the North Korean ambassador to the United Nations appeared at the General Assembly on Tuesday morning, but he left before President Trump entered the room. They also noted that the seats assigned to North Korea were empty during President Trump's speech. The only man present in their section was an unidentified individual taking notes.
The world waits with bated breath to see how North Korea will respond to President Trump's declarations. Faith Family America will keep you updated on the Communist country's response.
