Trump's Wall Street Journal interview is incoherent and freaky

"I believe, Mr Kim Jong-un has certainly won this round", he added, also saying that the leader "has a nuclear (charge) and a ... missile with a range of up to 13,000 kilometers that can reach nearly any place on Earth or at least any territory of his potential adversary". "All of the mainland United States is within the range of our nuclear strike".

Fresh UN sanctions and ongoing North Korea missile tests have ratcheted up already high tensions between the hermit nation and the US.

"These activities underscore North Korea's continued efforts to maintain the Punggye-ri site's potential for future nuclear testing", it said.

Since President Donald Trump bragged about the size of his "nuclear button" in a tweet directed at North Korea on January 2, companies selling products meant to protect people in the event of a nuclear attack have seen an exponential uptick in sales and calls.

In a sweeping interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump explained that him calling the North Korean leader a "maniac", a "bad dude", "short and fat" and "rocket man" is part of a broader strategy to win over his enemies.

Would Kim Jong-Un flex his country's muscles by ordering missile tests while the Games are going on? "I'm a very flexible person".

Although Mr Donald Trump was unable to visit the Demilitarized Zone during his Seoul visit previous year, South Korean officials made sure the U.S. president's helicopter ride showed him that the capital was only 56km from the border.

And the newspaper, a mouthpiece for Kim and his tyrannical government, said Fire and Fury's popularity reflected 'rapidly surging anti-Trump sentiments in the worldwide community'.

However, Donald Trump's ill-considered riposte on Twitter-'I too have a nuclear button, but it is a much bigger and more powerful one than his, and my button works'-only heightened worldwide concerns over his mindset on using nuclear weapons.

Defectors have said being found in possession of a Bible is a punishable offense in North Korea. "Only our leader knows the issue in full, '" they said, according to Vorontsov. It appeared to be a softening of rhetoric, given that Trump lectured Secretary of State Rex Tillerson a year ago that it would be a waste of time "trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man", Trump's nickname for Kim.

In November, Trump said while on a trip to Vietnam that becoming friends with Kim "might be a unusual thing to happen but it's a possibility".

"I understand that a lot of things are hard to negotiate prior to an election", Trump said. If Japan and South Korea got nukes, it would generate a series of cascading aftershocks as China responded to Japanese nuclear acquisition in particular, and India responded to China's moves, and so on. "It should be the last option - and heaven forbid we have to use it".
