North Korea makes defiant statement against Trump with reckless launch

The international community has long been attempting to rein in the rogue nation of North Korea.

The authoritarian communist regime, led for decades by the Kim dynasty, has routinely been involved in grotesque instances of human rights abuse, as well as reckless, aggressive military posturing – the latter of which if often for the sake of attention from the global community.

The White House, Pentagon and US State Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

However, the joint chiefs said South Korean and US militaries were reportedly analysing details of the launches.

It is precisely this sort of behavior that had landed Kim in the hot seat prior to Trump’s election, during six decades in which the United States refused to engage in any sort of diplomacy with North Korea.
