My nuclear button is much bigger, powerful and it works: Donald Trump

US President Donald Trump has responded to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s claims he has a “nuclear button on his table” by saying the American nuclear button is “much bigger, powerful, and it works”.




In his annual address to the nation on the New Year, Kim Jong Un suggested he would continue with his mass production of weapons even though it has given rise to immense international tensions. It was in the same speech in which Kim Jong warned The United States of America that it has a “nuclear button” on his table ready for use if North Korea is ever threatened.

The nuclear button portion of the speech was replied to by the US President through his social media handles, with Donald Trump tweeting a reply earlier today which mocked Kim Jong Un’s claims.

Here’s what the US President tweeted :-

North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

The comment is aimed to mock the relative underdevelopment of North Korea when compared to The US of A and can only serve to further strain the relationship between the two nations who are already at loggerheads with each other.




Kim Jong Un, in his annual speech, also reiterated that North Korea has achieved it’s goal of becoming a nuclear state. He has presided over the ramped up efforts in 2017 to make Pyongyang a nuclear power, a move which has been strongly opposed by the US Government. Washington has made it clear they will not tolerate a nuclear armed North Korea and Pyongyang has to undertake denuclearization steps before any peace talks can take place between the USA and North Korea, and now there is a growing belief there is little hope of a diplomatic solution to the crisis.

Mike Mullen, a former chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, said the Trump presidency had helped create “an incredibly dangerous climate”, in an interview on ABC’s “This Week”.




Amidst all the tensions surrounding USA and North Korea relations, Kim Jong’s annual speech had a rare sign of peace towards South Korea, with talks of North Korea sending a delegation to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang next month and “peaceful resolution with our southern border”. The South Korean President’s office welcomed Kim Jong Un’s peace talks.
