U.S. President Donald Trump has been awarded death penalty by North Korea’s state media for insulting the country’s leader, Kim Jong Un.
According to an editorial in the ruling party newspaper, Donald Trump made an offensive remark against Kim Jong Un when he denounced North Korea’s “cruel dictatorship” during his tour to Asia, and for that, he deserves the death penalty, according to the North Korea’s state media.

Donald Trump’s Death Penalty for Insulting Kim Jong Un
According to AFP, Donald Trump was terrified of visiting the North Korean border as he “was just too scared to face the glaring eyes of our troops”, reports the editorial. Donald Trump canceled the trip to the North Korean Border holding bad weather as the reason.
“The worst crime for which he can never be pardoned is that he dared to malignantly hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership,” the editorial said. The editorial further states “Donald Trump should know that he is just a hideous criminal sentenced to death by the Korean people”
Throughout the Asian trip, Donald Trump made a significant attempt to unite the Asian governments in an attempt to curb down North Korea’s nuclear global threat, in addition to making offensive, insulting remarks against Kim Jong Un, the current leader of North Korea.
During a visit to Seoul, he delivered a stern warning to North Korea, saying: “Do not underestimate us. And do not try us.” But he also signaled for the first time that he might be open to discussions with Kim Jong Un
Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un Verbal Spats
Trump sent a tweet from Hanoi taunting the North Korean leader over his height and weight. During the final stages of his Asian Tour, he posted on Twitter: “Why would Kim Jong-Un insult me by calling me ‘old,’ when I would NEVER call him ‘short and fat’?”
The state newspaper of North Korea has left no stones unturned in insulting Donald Trump by even calling him a “rabid dog”. The state newspaper is often perceived as the mouthpiece for the government and had regularly attacked Donald Trump.
Since Trump became president, the two leaders have exchanged numerous insults. In September, Trump called Kim Jong Un “rocket man” during a speech to the UN.
The North Korean leader returned the insult by calling Donald Trump as a mentally deranged human being whose intellect is on the decline with age. He specifically said that Donald Trump is a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard.” According to a blog on Merriam-Webster’s site, dotard means a person who is in a state of deteriorating intellect.
