The recent hype between North Korea and the US is on the rise, as President Trump fires back at Kim Jong-un. The statement by North Korean Leader, Kim Jong-un just stated that the ‘Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.’ The open threat to the United States was not taken lightly by President Trump, who replied back saying “Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”
North Korean President declared rather openly about the missile range of North Korea’s nuclear weapons and clearly stated that the entire mainland of the US is within the range of their nuclear weapons. The claim is rather a threat than a reality, as North Korea clearly undermines the defense power of United States.
US Ambassador, Nikki Haley announced that “If war comes make no mistake: the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed” The US Ambassador clearly states the nation’s power to nullify North Korea’s defense mechanism and take out the country in case of a violent progression. The United States denies North Korea’s nuclear weapons and states that it is an obstacle to achieving global peace. US Ambassador Nikki also stated that the United States will never accept North Korea as a nuclear country and will do everything in its power to prevent the peace of the world from disrupting.
The democrat of Massachusetts, Ed Markey mentioned in the Senate hearing that “I don’t think that the assurances that I’ve received today will be satisfying to the American people,” He further stated that “I think they can still realize that Donald Trump can launch nuclear codes just as easily as he can use his Twitter account.”
President Trump’s reply to North Korea is a clear distinction between reality and delusion. At this stage, North Korea is perhaps overly excited about its new achievement, but the country’s immaturity is a clear sign that they do not have the capacity to handle such destructive force in their hands.
North Korea can talk with anyone they want,” US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley announced. But the US is not going to recognize it or acknowledge it until they agree to ban the nuclear weapons that they have.” If there are talks, they would be the first formal dialogue between the Koreas since December 2015.
