‘My Red Button Is Bigger Than Yours’ Trump Issues Deadlier Threat To North Korea Leader, Kim Jong-Un

Trump and Kim Jong-Un
Donald Trump has warned Kim Jong-un that his ‘Nuclear Button’ is ‘much bigger & more powerful’ than the North Korean leader’s.

The US President tweeted in response to Mr Kim’s declaration earlier this week that he has a button for nuclear weapons on his table and the entire US mainland is now within strike range.

Mr Trump asked if someone from Mr Kim’s ‘depleted and food starved regime’ can ‘please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!’

 He said: ‘Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!’

The president does not actually have a nuclear button on his desk. Known as the nuclear ‘football’, it is carried by a rotating group of military officers everywhere the president goes.


Yesterday Pakistan hit back over Trump’s tweets describing his New Year’s Day message as being ‘completely incomprehensible’.

The government summoned the US ambassador to complain but stopped short of demands by protesting Islamic groups to expel the envoy. The latest round of tit-for-tat attacks between the two countries was ignited by Mr Trump’s tweet on Monday. 44

He said the US had ‘foolishly’ given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars (£24 billion) in aid in the last 15 years and had received nothing in return but ‘lies & deceit’.

He also reiterated longstanding allegations that Pakistan gives ‘safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan’.

A statement issued after a National Security Committee meeting, which was attended by Pakistan’s prime minister and the powerful army chief of staff, said the US was making Pakistan a scapegoat for its own failure to bring peace to Afghanistan after 16 years of war.
