US President Donald Trump has used his first speech to the United Nations General Assembly to mock North Korea’s Leader.
The controversial president took to the stage on Tuesday, telling world leaders that he will not be afraid to destroy the country if he has to.
“The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,” Trump said.

He then continued by labelling Kim Jong-Un “Rocket Man”.
“Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime,” he said.
“No nation on earth has an interest in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles. It is time for North Korea to realize that the denuclearization is its only acceptable future.”
