North Korea to US: We’re on the brink of nuclear war

By Bob Fredericks

President Trump’s increasingly bellicose rhetoric aimed at North Korea has pushed the US and the communist dictatorship to the brink of nuclear war, according to the North’s foreign minister.

“By his belligerent and insane statement at the United Nations, Trump, so to say, lighted the fuse of war against us,” Ri Yong Ho told Russia’s state-run news agency TASS on Wednesday. “We need to settle the final score, only with a hail of fire, not words.”

At the UN, Trump mocked dictator Kim Jong Un, dubbing him “Rocket Man” and warning that the US may be forced to “totally destroy” the rogue nation. “If the righteous many do not confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph,” Trump said. “Rocket Man is on a suicide mission.”
