North Korea Calls Trump’s Seoul Speech Declaration of War

SEOUL – North Korea called on Wednesday a recent speech by US President Donald Trump in the South Korean capital a declaration of war.

During his speech last week, Trump, who was in Seoul as part of his Asian tour, had criticized the repressive North Korean regime and painted a bleak picture of life in the country.

“The reckless remarks spouted by Trump during his junkets cannot but be viewed as the final confirmation of the White House’s hostile policy toward the DPRK, a total denial of the existence of the DPRK and an open declaration of war,” the country’s main newspaper Rodong Sinmun said in an editorial.

During his address at the National Assembly of Seoul on Nov. 8, Trump had criticized the human rights violations by the Kim Jong-un regime and said that the country is far from the paradise Kim’s grandfather Kim Il-sung had envisioned it to be.

Pyongyang’s response to this direct attack comes a day after the conclusion of Trump’s Asian tour, during which he also visited Japan, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.

“We’ve watched Trump’s ludicrous acts with patience to the last,” the article said.

“He should know that he is just a hideous criminal sentenced to death by the Korean people,” it added.

The Republican politician had also earlier called the North Korean leader short and fat on Twitter.

During his Asia tour, Trump had urged the international community to unite and put pressure on North Korea to halt its nuclear missile program.

North Korea has not carried out any new tests since Sept. 15, when it launched an intermediate-range missile that flew over Japan.
