N. Korea berates Trump's anti-North criticism as 'declaration of war'

Officials in the North Korean government are reportedly "trying to figure out" if Donald Trump is "crazy" or if his increasingly provocative stance against the rogue state is "just an act", a USA negotiator with Pyongyang has said.

A week ago, the U.S. president, who was on a state visit to South Korea, addressed the Assembly, detailing the Pyongyang regime's cruelty and rights violations and the hardship of the North Korean people. "He should know that he is just a ugly criminal sentenced to death by the Korean people", the commentary read.

The Rodong Sinmun saw it as a sign of weakness, however, writing in the op-ed: "He was just too scared to face the glaring eyes of our troops".

Trump was given the opportunity to address the National Assembly in Seoul as part of his state visit to Seoul, the first American president to give a speech to lawmakers since Bill Clinton in 1993. The unfiltered tweets led some to worry that World War 3 would start on Twitter if the president continued to taunt Jong Un.

On Saturday, the North's Foreign Ministry responded in a statement: "Reckless remarks by an old lunatic like Trump will never scare us or stop our advance".

Throughout the trip, Mr Trump attempted to unite Asian governments in an attempt to crack down on North Korea s nuclear weapons, as well as insulting the current leadership.

The hiatus comes as China prepares to send a special envoy to North Korea and South Korea co-hosts a United Nations disarmament and nonproliferation conference. The same day, Trump said during a news conference in Vietnam that he would like to friends with Jong Un, even though it "might be a unusual thing to happen".

US President Donald Trump declared Wednesday that he will not accept a North Korea with nuclear weapons and will continue to put "maximum pressure" on the regime.

In fact, he called his tour of Asia successful in two separate tweets within 24 hours of returning to Washington.
