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

By Collin Gossel

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.
