North Korea (also known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea or DPRK) is all set to challenge U.S. President Donald Trump on his own turf, Twitter.
Of late, Trump has been using Twitter mischievously to tease his North Korean counterpart Kim Jong Un. Trump also tweeted that “military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!”
In response, North Korea called Trump an impotent buffoon. “Latest idiocies vomited from the mind of Donald Trump are dismissed as the ravings of an impotent buffoon,” the communist country said in its retaliatory tweet.
In order to win the Tweet war, North Korea claims that it has acquired a 280 character “Tweet” technology which breaks Twitter’s 140- character limit.
Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea now has 280 character “Tweet” technology. Fear Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea. Bow down in awe at Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea 280 character “Tweet” technology!
On its official Twiiter account, North Korea also demonstrated the new technology with a tweet that had more than 140 characters. It lambasted Twitter for its biased behaviour saying the company failed to verify @DPRK_News as Voice of The Workers Party of Korea.
US computer company Twitter blasted for “verifying” fascists, while failing to verify @DPRK_News, Voice of The Workers Party of Korea.
Many believe there is no reason for Trump to provoke North Korea. But Trump is finding issues to divert media attention away from the discussion of his alleged ties with the enemy country Russia.
Trump’s latest threats to North Korea are part of an ill-conceived strategy to avoid the Russia probe that is being spearheaded by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Earlier, Congressman Ted Lieu had warned about Trump’s tendencies to trigger a nuclear war. Referring to the recent US missile attack on Syria in retaliation for an alleged chemical weapons attack, Ted Lieu feared that Trump might attempt a similar misadventure on North Korea, as Trump has repeatedly expressed his displeasure with Pyongyang.
Meanwhile, Ted Lieu issued a bipartisan joint statement which said that if President Trump does intend to pursue a military option against North Korea, he must come to Congress as required by our Constitution.
