President Trump hailed as “leader of the world”
‘Do not underestimate us. And do not try us,” Trump warned North Korea during an address Wednesday before South Korea’s National Assembly.
“The world cannot tolerate the menace of a rogue regime that threatens it with nuclear devastation,” said Trump in a tough speech televised around the world.
“All responsible nations must join forces to isolate the brutal regime of North Korea – to deny it any form of support, supply, or acceptance. It’s a country ruled like a cult by a deranged belief in the ruler’s destiny.”
The president warned Kim Jong-un: “The weapons 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.”
Trump concluded: “North Korea is not the paradise your grandfather envisioned,” he said, referring to the nation’s founder Kim Il-sung. “It is a hell that no person deserves.”
South Korean Assembly speaker Chung Sye-kyun praised President Trump as “leader of the world,” and described First Lady Melania Trump as “beautiful and wise.”
