HBO's Maher: 'I love' Kim Jong Un for calling Trump a dotard

Hours after Trump's statements, Kim blasted him and vowed to make him pay dearly.

The war of words between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, ongoing for over a month, saw increasingly colourful rhetoric on Friday.

"I will make the man holding the prerogative of the supreme command in the USA pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying the DPRK", said the statement carried by North's official Korean Central News Agency on Friday morning.

"If this is not twisted enough, now North Korea's reckless pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles threatens the entire world with unthinkable loss of human life", Trump said at the United Nations on Tuesday.

He blasted Trump's maiden speech to the UN General Assembly as "unprecedented rude nonsense".

"I will make the man holding the prerogative of the supreme command in the United States pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying the DPRK", read the statement carried by North's official Korean Central News Agency from Pyongyang.

Pyongyang conducted its sixth and largest nuclear test on September 3 and has launched dozens of missiles this year as it accelerates a program aimed at enabling it to target the United States with a nuclear-tipped missile.

North Korea's foreign minister later said that could be a hydrogen bomb test in the Pacific Ocean if Kim orders it.

Trump threatened in his speech to the 193-member world body on Tuesday to "totally destroy" the North if provoked.

US President Donald Trump's announcement that Beijing told its banks to stop dealing with North Korea is "not consistent with the facts", a Chinese foreign ministry spokesman said on Friday, but he gave indication what steps China might be taking.

On their own, sanctions will also likely fail to defuse tensions on the Korean Peninsula , McCallum said. Kim also said that he will make the U.S. "pay dearly" for threatening his country.

North Korea continued to flex its military power with another missile test last week.

President Donald Trump has added economic action to his fiery military threats against North Korea, authorizing stiffer new sanctions in response to the Koreans' nuclear weapons advances.

In Taiwan, the Executive Yuan yesterday said in a statement that Premier William Lai (賴清德) has chose to enforce bans on imports from and exports to North Korea.

Trump did not mention Pyongyang's oil trade.

Earlier Thursday, Trump signed an executive order that would enable the United States to sanction individual companies and institutions that finance trade with North Korea.

"We assess that there is a slim possibility that it was caused by a collapse", said Park Jong-shin, one of the officials.

An global lawyer believes US President Donald Trump has "given over the real authority" to the generals in the Pentagon, the Central Intelligence Agency and the neocons, who benefit from advocating a very belligerent stance not only against North Korea but also against China, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba and Russian Federation.

DPRK is the abbreviation of the country's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Ri said the president's speech was an "irreversible mistake making it inevitable" that North Korean rockets one day would hit the US mainland.

"All of our endeavours are to prevent war from breaking out and maintain peace", Moon said in his speech.
