President Donald Trump ridiculed North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, just one day after the rogue regime launched another ballistic missile test.
“Little rocket man … he is a sick puppy,” Trump said.
The president made the comment during a discussion of his tax cut plan for Americans, which he said would be “rocket fuel” for the American economy.
Trump has vowed additional sanctions on North Korea after their latest missile launch and spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday.
“Additional major sanctions will be imposed on North Korea today,” he wrote. “This situation will be handled!”
After meeting with Trump on Tuesday, General James Mattis said the latest North Korean launch was a threat to the United States, as their missile test traveled higher than ever before.
“The bottom line is it’s a continued effort to build a ballistic missile threat that endangers world peace and regional peace and certainly the United States,” Mattis said.
