Trump: 'North Korea Is Starting To Respect Us' - North Korea: 'Don't Bank On It'

Trump: 'North Korea Is Starting To Respect Us' - North Korea: 'Don't Bank On It'by 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

While every US President is unique in one way or another, current Commander in Chief Donald Trump has certainly made a name for himself as one of the most memorable. Do we really need to count the ways? In any case – while Barack Obama was the first President to truly make use of Twitter at its height, Trump is the first to really use it as his personal soapbox, away from the mass media he has derided so much. Further to this, he has also used it to make statements contradictory to those made by the White House, to firm up his official stance on issues such as the threat of North Korean strike, the infamous border wall he has pledged to make Mexico pay for and more besides. In fact, it was mooted for some time as to whether or not Trump would continue to have unadulterated access to Twitter during his Presidency – however, for better or for worse, he seems to still have access to his beloved social media account.

His use of Twitter – and some of the controversial comments he has made via the service – has gained international infamy, with even foreign diplomats commenting on the President’s tweeting as and when he makes a particularly charged statement. Among them, Pyongyang – home of North Korean leader and controversial figurehead Kim Jong Un, whose recent rhetoric in back-and-forth with Trump has led to some concern over where rising tension will end. Trump had recently stated that North Korea was ‘starting to respect’ the US – however, someone didn’t seem to pass this memo along to Pyongyang, who took a swipe at the US leader’s Twitter obsession.

The KCNA news agency – operated completely by the North Korean state – advised that Trump was known to ‘spout rubbish to make his assistants have a hard time’, and that his Twitter feed was full of ‘weird articles of his ego-driven thoughts’. It seems, therefore, that while President Trump may think that healing between the two nations is on the way, this may not necessarily be the case – at the very least, it seems that a war of words is still on the cards. Will relations between US and North Korea change for the better in time? Who’s to say – but for as long as Trump has access to Twitter, he will surely continue to make headlines!
