North Korea calls Trump a ‘psychopath’
EXCLUSIVE: North Korea today called on US President Donald Trump to become a “psychopath” that heightened tensions following the death of American student Otto Warmbier, who was evacuated in a coma detention North Korea the week pass.
Pyongyang’s official daily Rodong Sinmun said the US president was in a “difficult situation” in the country and said he was working on the idea of a pre-emptive strike against North Korea to divert attention from an internal political crisis .
“South Korea has to realize that after the psychopath Trump … will only lead to catastrophe,” said an editorial published by the newspaper.
A series of nuclear tests and missile launches since last year have led to tensions in the Korean peninsula, and Warmbier’s death still limited relations between Pyongyang and Washington.
Trump has criticized the “brutal regime” in Pyongyang and said he was determined to “prevent such tragedies from falling on innocent people at the hands of regimes that do not respect the rule of law and basic human decency.”

His language was echoed by South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who said in an interview ahead of a visit to the White House next week that North Korea was responsible for the student’s death.
“I think we now have the perception that North Korea is an irrational regime,” Luna said on CBS television “This Morning.”
Luna, a center-left politician who was sworn in last month after a landslide victory, favors engagement with the North, rather than the hard line of his former conservative Park Geun-hye predecessor.
Washington also stepped up its show of strength in the region, blowing up two B-1 bombers on the Korean peninsula on Tuesday on a training mission scheduled with Japan and South Korea as a last demonstration of strength.
