North Korea: 'America first' is the 'American version of Nazism'

Sandy Vega | 28 June, 2017, 04:53

SEOUL-North Korea's state media described President Donald Trump's "America First" policy as "Nazism in the 21st century", and compared the USA president to Adolf Hitler, in the harshest language that Pyongyang has directed at the Trump administration.

The Korean Central News Agency said Trump's policy is the "American version of Nazism far surpassing the fascism in the last century in its ferocious, brutal and chauvinistic nature".

KCNA goes on to say that while Trump divides the world into "friends and foes", his "two-nation strategy" follows "Hitler's dictatorial politics." .

"The "American-first principle"...advocates the world domination by recourse to military means just as was the case with Hitler's concept of world occupation", read the editorial, in comments translated by The Japan Times.

Moon Jae-in, the new leader of North Korea's neighbour and arch enemy, South Korea, is headed to Washington for talks this week.

A notable exception was the hawkish former president George W. Bush, who included the North in his "axis of evil" along with Iran and Iraq and called then-leader Kim Jong-Il a "tyrant".

The Trump administration is pushing for stronger sanctions against the North over its nuclear and missile programmes.

The article also described Mr. Trump's decision to withdraw the US from the 2015 Paris climate-change agreement as a violation of worldwide norms that surpassed the horror of the Nazis' concentration camps.

Trump decried the "brutality" of the regime of leader Kim Jong Un last week after the return of U.S. student Otto Warmbier in a coma.

"The Trump way of thinking that the whole world may be sacrificed, just for the better living of the United States, has put even its allies and stooges in a pretty fix", KCNA added.

Writing on the North Korea analysis site 38North, Robert Carlin, a visiting scholar at Stanford University's Center for International Security and Cooperation, said Monday that over the past month Pyongyang had relaxed restrictions on "rhetorical attacks" on the new USA administration.
