DONALD Trump has warned the world is in “great peril” as threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea in a bombshell speech at the UN.
The US President made his presence known with a fierce 41 minute tirade as took to the podium at the General Assembly in New York.
Trump didn’t mince his words as he slammed Kim Jong-uns regime as a “twisted” and “depraved” regime – once again dubbing him “Rocket Man”.
He threatened the rogue nation to back down from its nuclear ambition warning the US can “totally destroy” North Korea.
Trump also referenced dead US student Otto Warmbier, who died after being detained by Kim’s police, the murder of Kim Jong-nam, and the state-sponsored abduction of Japanese citizens by Pyongyang.
Trump warned the world risks falling into a “valley of disrepair” as he dubbed the rogue regime a threat to the “entire world”.
“Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime”
However, he spoke of optimism and said the world will overcome the the “perils of the present” to acheive the “promise of the future”.
The US President called on the world to tackle the “wicked few” and said “we must work together confront those who threaten us with terror”.
Trump said “major portions of the world are in conflict and some, in fact, are going to hell” as he also addressed problems in Iran and Venezuela.
He added: “If the righteous many do not confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph.”
Tensions have reached new heights this year as North Korea’s nuclear missile programme advances quickly – including the detonation of an H-bomb.
Trump has previously used firey rhetoric to take on Kim, warning of “fire and fury” and chillingly saying “we’ll see” when asked if he would attack Pyongyang.
Daily Star Online revealed fears Trump may be talking the world into war as he his war talk boxes Kim into a corner.
