North Korean leader Kim Jong Un called President Trump a "mentally deranged dotard" and threatened to "tame (Trump) with fire" for making comments to the United Nations about destroying the rogue nation.

"The mentally deranged behavior of the U.S. president openly expressing on the UN arena the unethical will to 'totally destroy' a sovereign state, beyond the boundary of threats of regime change or overturn of social system, makes even those with normal thinking faculty think about discretion and composure," Kim said in a statement released Friday morning on North Korean media.

Kim said that Trump is “unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country.” He also described the president as “a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire."
