It’s no secret that President Trump and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un have been feuding for months. But the Pyongyang’s state media evidently had enough of Trump's insults to the dignity of their “supreme leader.” Buzz60


North Korea gave its version of a diplomatic verdict Wednesday on President Trump's recent trip to Asia: He's a coward who deserves to die.

Pyongyang's state media slammed Trump for insulting North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un while on a five country tour of Asia. It said the American president, who Kim has feuded with for months, deserves the death penalty. 

"The worst crime for which (Trump) can never be pardoned is that he dared (to) malignantly hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership. He should know that he is just a hideous criminal sentenced to death by the Korean people," it said. 

The comments were published in an editorial in the Rodong Sinmun newspaper, a mouthpiece for Kim's ruling Workers' Party of Korea.

The paper also branded Trump a coward for canceling a visit to the heavily fortified border area that separates North and South Korea.

Trump returned to Washington on Tuesday after a tour of the region that included stops in Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines. The purpose of the trip was to discuss trade and efforts to halt North Korea's nuclear ambitions.
