United States President Donald Trump took a jab at North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong-Un, calling him a “sick puppy” on Wednesday, November 29.
According to the Washington Examiner, President Trump used his speech at a rally in St. Charles, Missuori, where he discussed the Republican tax plan, to ridicule the North Korean leader.
He was in the middle of his speech about the tax cut being the “rocket fuel” for the United States economy when he deviated to take a dig at Kim Jong-Un, whom he again called “little rocket man.”
“The tax cut would mean more companies moving to America, staying in America and hiring American workers right here,” he said, adding “These massive tax cuts will be rocket fuel… (he injected “Little Rocket Man” at this point to the delight of his audience) for the American economy.”
“He is a sick puppy,” he said afterwards, before continuing with his speech.
Trump’s remarks were made on the heels of North Korea’s latest test-flight of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), which it claimed was capable of striking anywhere in the United States.
