Even North Korea thinks Trump is 'bereft of reason'




You know things are looking bad when even North Korea says you're "bereft of reason".

A military general from North Korea issued a statement on Wednesday mocking the U.S. president, amid increasing tension between both countries.

"Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason and only absolute force can work on him," said General Kim Rak-Gyom, the commander of North Korea's Korean People's Army (KPA), according to North Korean state media KCNA.

The most surprising part? People started taking to Twitter in agreement with General Kim.

North Korea's statement comes in response to Trump's earlier announcement that threats from North Korea would be met "with fire and fury like the world has never seen" - one of the most strongly worded statements yet to come from Trump's presidency.

General Kim also goes on to say that Trump has failed "to grasp the on-going grave situation", adding that it was "getting on the nerves" of the KPA.

'A warning to the U.S.'

North Korea also announced in the same statement a detailed plan to launch missiles aimed at the waters off the coast of Guam, as a way of signalling "a crucial warning to the U.S."

The pacific island of Guam is home to the U.S. naval base as well as an air force base.

It's also located 2,000 miles (3,400km) away from Pyongyang, and North Korea has claimed that the island is within range of its medium and long-range missiles.

The statement added that the military would "complete" the plan by mid-August, and it would be reported and sent to Kim Jong-un to await "his order".
