N.Korea likens Trump to Hitler

The war of words between US President Donald Trump and Pyongyang has escalated in recent months

The war of words between US President Donald Trump and Pyongyang has escalated in recent months

Labelling Trump's idea of placing Americans on the priority list as 21 century Nazism, the North said Trump's policies were more "ferocious, brutal and chauvinistic nature" compared to that of Hitler.

Trump was "following Hitler's dictatorial politics" to divide others into two categories, "friends and foes" to justify "suppression", it added.

"The 'American-first principle, '" the Korean Central News Agency asserted, "advocates the world domination by recourse to military means just as was the case with Hitler's concept of world occupation".

Madigan's position on nearly every issue is the opposite of Rauner's, and he has successfully blocked Rauner at almost every turn. Despite no movement on term limits and legislative district reforms, Madigan said he is hoping for a compromise .

Tensions have been escalating between the two nations following the death of USA student Otto Warmbier, who was arrested in North Korea and sent home in a coma after 18 months, and in the face of Pyongyang's military and nuclear ambitions.

The report comes as President Moon Jae-in and Trump are set to hold their first summit in Washington later this week, during which North Korea's nuclear issue is likely to top the agenda.

A notable exception was the hawkish former president George W. Bush, who included the North in his "axis of evil" along with Iran and Iraq and called then-leader Kim Jong-Il a "tyrant".

One of the names that gained some traction is "The FEDS", an acronym for Fultz, Embiid, Dario Saric, and Simmons. We aren't there yet though, and Durant is here to remind us we might need to pump the brakes a little.

Trump decried the "brutality" of the regime of leader Kim Jong Un last week after the return of USA student Otto Warmbier in a coma. The North's latest verbal attack against the Trump administration follows Pyongyang's declaration that South Korea should realize that "following psychopath Trump" will only lead to destruction and disaster.

KCNA accused it of blocking medical supplies in what it said was "an unethical and inhumane act, far exceeding the degree of Hitler's blockade of Leningrad".

North Korean state media has always been known for its vitriol - which has often been directed at US and South Korean leaders who defied Pyongyang. Back in January, North Korean diplomat Choe Son Hui was all set to come to NY, presumably to open up a dialogue between our two countries - but then the State Department backed out, following the assassination of Kim Jong Nam, crazy-ass dictator Kim Jong Un's half-brother.
