Just days after Donald Trump mocked Kim Jong-un in front of the entire United Nations, the world waited for the North Korean leader to respond. As expected, Kim didn't hold back his thoughts in a prepared statement.

Kim on Trump

During the 2016 presidential election, it became clear that Donald Trump wouldn't pull any punches when dealing with his critics. Whether it was the Democrats, members of the mainstream media, the liberal-leaning celebrities in Hollywood, or even some members of his own Republican Party, the former host of "The Apprentice" made a name for himself by lashing out on social media, in interviews, and even during speeches.

Since his upset election win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Trump has only amped up his attacks, while also expanding them to several world leaders. In recent weeks, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has made the decision to launch several test missiles in the region, which has resulted in the United Nations implementing strict sanctions on the country. In addition, Trump has often gone rogue with his thoughts about Kim, mocking him as "Rocket Man" on Twitter, while using the term once again as he addressed the United Nations General Assembly earlier this week, while also threatening to "destroy" the country as well. As reported by the Associated Press on September 21, Kim is not pleased.

In a statement released on Thursday, Kim Jong-un hit back at Donald Trump and his controversial rhetoric. "I'd like to advise Trump to exercise prudence in selecting words and to be considerate of whom he speaks to when making a speech in front of the world," Kim wrote.

"I will make the man holding the prerogative of the supreme command in the U.S. pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying," Kim continued.

"Whatever Trump might have expected, he will face results beyond his expectation," Kim Jong-un warned, before stating, "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U.

S. dotard with fire." As expected, it didn't' take too long before social media users gave their thoughts.

Twitter reacts

Within minutes of Kim Jong-un's statement being released to the public, critics of Donald Trump spoke out. "So, Kim Jong un just called Trump 'mentally deranged.' Which puts me in an awkward spot, as I now have agreed with Kim more often than Trump."


JONG. UN. thinks DONALD TRUMP is 'mentally deranged.' the pot did a cursory assessment of the kettle and told it to chill the fu*k out," one tweet read. "Kim Jong Un should be called missile punk or rocket punk . Not rocket man or missile man. He's not even a man he's something else," an additional tweet added.

"Kim Jong Un talks to Trump like I talk to my ex-boyfriends," another Twitter user noted. As the backlash continued, it showed that those who oppose Donald Trump were not going to let up anytime soon.
