The biggest story to dominate the headlines in recent days is the ongoing feud between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. The rift between the two kicked into high gear following Trump's speech to the United Nations and has only increased in recent days, with Kellyanne Conway quick to defend the president's remarks during an interview on Fox News.

Conway on North Korea

Donald Trump is not shy when it comes to giving his thoughts about a wide-range of issues. During the 2016 presidential election, it became routine to watch the former host of "The Apprentice" lash out at those who opposed him.

Whether it was members of the mainstream media, foreign leaders, the Democratic Party, Hollywood celebrities, or even members of his own Republican Party, Trump didn't care who he offended or attacked. Over the last few weeks, tension between North Korea and many countries have escalated due to Kim Jong-un's decision to repeatedly test missiles in the region. Last week, Trump took to Twitter to belittle Kim, referring to him as "Rocket Man." The president used the nickname once again while addressing the United Nations General Assembly, which resulted in the North Korean leader firing back, labeling Trump "mentally deranged" and a "dotard." These issues were discussed with Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway during a September 22 interview on "Fox & Friends."

Joining the hosts of the Fox News morning show "Fox & Friends" on Friday morning was Kellyanne Conway who wasted no time defending Donald Trump in his opposition to Kim Jong-un and North Korea.

After summing up the recent sanctions put in place by the United States and the United Nations against North Korea, Conway stated, "All of that threaded together shows world leaders, including in China, that they take seriously President Trump's actions," Conway said, before adding, "not his threats. Not his words. Talk is cheap."

"For this non-politician who is accustomed to dealing with product and deliverables and action, you see the world responding," Kellyanne Conway went on to said.

"North Korea is every nation’s problem. It’s not a distinctly American issue," she added.

Twitter reacts

Not long after Kellyanne Conway defended Donald Trump's respeonse to North Korea, critics took the time to lash out on social media.

"They weren't a problem when I was in the Navy Reagan ignored N.Korea. it's because of dump Trump provoking this dictator to go over the edge," one tweet read.

"@realDonaldTrump is every nation's REAL problem. It's not just distinctly an American issue," another Twitter user wrote.

"Trump's threat to "totally destroy" North Korea was distinctly American in origin. He is the American President, is he not?" an additional tweet wondered.

"@KellyannePolls even though your boss is shitting his pants over #TrumpRussia he can still grow up and stop the childish, reckless NK BS," a tweet noted. As the negative reaction continued, it showed that Kellyanne Conway's defense of Donald Trump was not welcomed by many Americans.
