The North Korean president, Kim Jong-un has raised the ante in a new anti-Trump tirade which was released on Friday, the Washington Post reported. He decided to use invectives when describing the U.S President by calling him a frightened dog. The statement was signed personally by Kim.

A fresh buildup of tension

The North Korean foreign minister issued a statement earlier on, which caused raised several eyebrows to be raised. The statement which was issued in New York revealed that testing of a massive hydrogen bomb in the Pacific seas was in the offing.The buildup to the anti-Trump tirade was supported by this inflammatory statement.

The earlier statement by Kim Jong-un was enough to raise concerns in several quarters. However, the dictator’s anger stemmed from Mr. Trump's earlier address at the UN General Assembly, which contained threats to annihilate North Korea. The North Korean strongman took the threat as a personal insult and resolved to fire his anti-Trump tirade.

Analysts have now read between the lines to surmise that Jong-un would have authorized that level of a fire-raising statement for the North Korean Minister. Whether the North Koreans are rabble-rousing or not is not especially clear at the moment. This is in view of the fact that many analysts are skeptical of claims of the technological prowess to launch a nuclear weapon of such magnitude.

Many people around the globe will pay more attention now that Kim Jong-un has added an anti-Trump slant to his vituperation.

The North Korean ensuing standoff

In August, the North Korean army fired a ballistic missile over the Japanese island of Hokkaido, in a move that rattled the markets. Officials from the intelligence community asserted after the missile tests that Chicago was within striking distance of such weapons.The anti-Trump focus of the unpopular leader's brickbats were yet to emerge at that stage.

The U.S reacted to the earlier provocation by sending troops and jet fighters to conduct a show of force in the Japanese Isles. That action has not deterred North Korea from acting aloof. Mr. Trump referred to the North Korean leader as a maniac and a madman, when he reviewed the dictator’s actions. The anti-Trump tirade ensued afterward.

Misplaced tirades?

Analysts are wondering what Kin-Jong-un seeks to achieve with his anti-Trump tirades directed at the U.S president. While some see it as a show of bravado by the North Korean leader, others view it as the reaction of a leader who feels threatened.

The rest of the world can only wait with bated breath for a dousing of the war of words between both leaders. While the North Korean leader cannot be trusted to be rational in his decisions, his anti-Trump comments heighten the standoff. The expectation will be that it does not go beyond rhetoric as the world economy will no doubt take a dip if hostilities break out.
