Trump Threatens To Destroy North Korea, Calls Kim Jong-Un ‘Rocket Man’ Again

Following his first address at the U.N. General Assembly, President Donald Trump sparked political controversy on Tuesday, September 19th, by threatening North Korea with "total destruction" if the United States is forced to defend itself. 

Trump said, in a measured tone:

The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.

Trump then continued his address, calling North Korea's leader Kim Jong-Un Rocket Man for the second time in a week:

Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary. That’s what the United Nations is all about. That’s what the United Nations is for.

Twitter was pretty frightened by Trump's promises:

Others noted that Trump's threat was not only dangerous, but illegal:

You have to admit though...Rocket Man is a pretty cool nickname.
