N Korea calls Trump ‘thoughtless’ old man over tweets

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA (AP) – North Korea insulted United States (US) President Donald Trump again yesterday, calling him a “thoughtless and sneaky old man” after he tweeted that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un wouldn’t want to abandon a special relationship between the two leaders and affect the American presidential election by resuming hostile acts.

A senior North Korean official, former nuclear negotiator Kim Yong Chol, said in a statement that his country wouldn’t cave in to US pressure because it has nothing to lose and accused the Trump administration of attempting to buy time to salvage nuclear talks.

Kim said North Korea will seek a “new way” if the US maintains its sanctions and pressure, and issued the deadline for the Trump administration to offer a deal.
