Kim Jong Un Vows To 'Tame The Mentally-Deranged' Trump 'With Fire'

Early Friday, Kim said that the president's remarks at the United Nations merit the "highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history".

Trump came up with his new nickname for Kim during a speech to world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly.

Trump met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Thursday, with Trump moving to impose new sanctions against the country. Kim also said the comments were reflective of "mentally deranged behavior".

The conflict in eastern Ukraine between Kyiv's forces and Russia-backed separatists has killed more than 10,000 people since it erupted in April 2014. The North has responded by a slew of weapons tests and warlike and often-mocking rhetoric against Trump.

Chinese banks were told in a memo to cease working with new and existing North Korean entities, according to a Reuters report, citing the need to cooperate with United Nations sanctions.

"We have no idea about what actions could be taken as it will be ordered by leader Kim Jong Un", he said.

While lecturing Trump to be more prudent in selecting words when making a speech, Kim said he can not avoid thinking that the USA president is "unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country".

Last month, the USA announced sanctions against five Chinese companies and one individual, two Singapore-based companies and three Russian citizens, which it accused of supporting North Korea's nuclear weapons programme. South Korean media called it the first such direct address to the world by Kim.

But North Korea's top diplomat, Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho, on Thursday likened Mr Trump's comments to "the sound of a barking dog".

U.S. President Donald Trump on September 22 warned "madman" North Korean leader Kim Jong-un that he would be "tested", the latest in an exchange of insults between the two.

"We have reduced all our diplomatic measures as much as possible to try and see how we can get to him (Kim)", she said.

Saying the Japan-U.S. relationship "has never been closer", Trump said much progress had been made on the North Korean issue and bilateral trade.

She delivered her warning just a day after President Donald Trump told the UN that the United States was ready to "totally destroy" the rogue state if it attacked America or its allies.

"Tolerance for this disgraceful practice must end now", he said of providing resources to North Korea.
