Donald Trump continues war of words with North Korea by saying 'only one thing will work'

Donald Trump has continued his war of words with North Korea, tweeting that “only one thing will work” when it comes to dealing with the regime.

Mr Trump used his Twitter account to suggest that any agreements made by previously US governments had been violated “before the ink was dry”,

“Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid…” he wrote, adding: “…hasn’t worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, making fools of U.S. negotiators. Sorry, but only one thing will work!”

The comments come just days after the US President told reporters and top military aides that they were in “the calm before the storm”, but refusing to be more specific about what that meant.



Mr Trump has been involved in an ongoing war of words with Kim Jong Un’s regime, threatening to “totally destroy” North Korea if it needed to, in an address to the UN General Assembly.

Mr Trump also previously referred to Kim Jong Un as ‘Little Rocket Man’, while the North Korean leader called him a “mentally deranged person full of meglamania”.

After the US President’s latest tweets, North Korean state media reported that Kim Jong Un said his nuclear weapons were a “powerful deterrent” that guaranteed the state’s sovereignty.
