The conflict between U.S President Donald Trump and North Korean President Kim Jong-Un got more intense when Trump was elected to office. The conflict goes back to the Korean War which began June 25, 1950 and ended July 27, 1953. North Korea has threatened the United States that they could take us to World War III, according to express.co.uk.
North Korea has been conducting nuclear missile testing because they plan to wipe the United States out. “As long as America continues its hostile acts of aggression, we will never stop nuclear and missile tests,” said Sak Chol Won, director of North Korea’s Institute of Human Rights. The United States response was that they’re ready for war. Donald Trump called Kim Jong-Un “a pretty smart cookie” in an interview conducted by CBS news. Trump was asked, “Why do the missiles keep blowing up?” He responded with, “We shouldn’t be announcing all our moves. It is a chess game. I just don’t want people to know what my thinking is,” according to BBC News. North Korea believes that Donald Trump is hacking into their weapon system causing their missiles to explode, etc.
