Donald Trump got seriously petty after Kim Jong-un called him 'old'

“I try so hard to be his friend.”

IS IT REALLY any surprise to learn that international politics in 2017 has gotten to the point where world leaders are basically saying “You’re old!” “Yeah? Well you’re fat.”

A North Korean state media report referred to Donald Trump as a ‘lunatic old man’.

Jong-un’s statement came as a response to Trump’s speech in South Korea where he warned North Korea that “the weapons you’re acquiring are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger. Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face.”

71-year-old Trump did not deny the suggestion that he made reckless remarks (and ignored the lunatic part altogether) in his tweet responding to Jong-un’s statement. Rather, he took to Twitter and responded in a way that slightly resembles an 11-year-old’s diary entry.
