Many of the world's most powerful leaders spoke at a United Nations meeting this week, but one in specific stood out.
That person, as you may of guessed, is our own president, Donald Trump.Trump has already made many controversial claims during his short presidency, but this one stands out among others.
This past week Trump made multiple claims that caught the eye of the media. He made threats to completely destroy North Korea, all the while belittling their leader, Kim Jong Jun.
“Rocket man,” as President Trump refers to Kim Jong Un, did not take the threats and name calling lightly.
Responding that “Now that Trump has denied the existence of and insulted me and my country in front of the eyes of the world and made the most ferocious declaration of a war in history that he would destroy the D.P.R.K. [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea], we will consider with seriousness exercising of a corresponding, highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history.”
It may appear evident that Kim Jong Un is ready to take any measure of action to combat these threats, but it’s really not that simple. In reality, it’s a lot more complicated than that.
Although he appears just as tough as the the big, bad, USA, in reality, Kim Jong Un is just acting to keep up his image of being a powerful leader. He does it to keep up a facade of hardness that anyone with a little base knowledge of him can easily see through.
He can fool his people who have little to no access to modern information and the rest of the outside world, but he can’t fool anyone with access to a TV, wifi, or anything of the sort, which happens to be most of the world.
We’ve deduced there isn’t much bite to his bark through analyzing his previous patterns of action, such as the missile tests, and threats to shoot down US planes.
