Seismic activity detected near North Korean nuclear site; cause is unknown

Donald Trump

Donald Trump has continued to belittle North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a rally speech in Alabama. Trump tweeted Friday that Kim was "obviously a madman" who would be "tested like never before". Dotard is a word used to describe an elderly person in a state of senile decay, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary.

The United States and the European Union on Thursday moved to impose new unilateral sanctions on North Korea as South Korea warned the United Nations of the risk of accidentally igniting a war.

The Pentagon said the mission was created to show the many military options U.S. President Donald Trump had to deal with the grave threat presented by the North Korean nuclear program.

Kim was responding to a speech by Trump at the United Nations General Assembly in which Trump said the United States would "totally destroy" North Korea if it threatened the United States or its allies.

He also mocked Kim Jong-un with a disparaging nickname, saying: "Rocket man is on a suicide mission".

He offered more vitriol for Trump, saying he was "unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country, and he would 'pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying North Korea".

'His remarks. have convinced me, rather than frightening or stopping me, that the path I chose is correct and that it is the one I have to follow to the last, ' Kim Jong-un said in a statement.

The quake also caps a week in which President Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong Un exchanged increasingly bellicose insults toward each other and follows a threat on Thursday by the North to carry out a significantly more unsafe nuclear test.




North Korea's weakest nuclear test, the first one conducted in 2006, generated a magnitude 4.3 quake.

Mnuchin declined to say exactly what the United States was seeking from North Korea, but said the country must "stop their missile tests and give up their nuclear weapons".

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said he believes the North could consider a hydrogen bomb test on the Pacific Ocean of an unprecedented scale, but the comments had little immediate impact on South Korean markets.

The spokesman, Lu Kang, said Beijing complies with U.N. Security Council resolutions. Satellite photos after the September 3 quake showed numerous landslides apparently caused by the massive blast, which North Korea said was an advanced hydrogen bomb.

North Korea was scheduled to speak at the UN General Assembly Friday night, but dropped off of its planned roster spot. -South Korean military drills to kick-start talks.

Media captionHow would war with North Korea unfold?

"Trump told the U.N. General Assembly this week that the US will have no choice but to "totally destroy" North Korea if the North continues to threaten the USA and its allies, including Asian neighbors South Korea and Japan". While many were baffled by the word, upon knowing what it means said it was "perfect", others lauded Kim for knowing better English that Trump!

In response to statements by trump North Korea threatens a hydrogen bomb.
