Tensions between the U.S. and North Korea have been rising dramatically over the past few months. Now, they appear to be boiling over in a terrifying way.

Daily Mail reported that American President Donald Trump has just spoken with Russian President Vladimir Putin about North Korea’s nuclear program. The White House said that Trump “reiterated the importance” of ensuring that North Korea is denuclearized.

This comes a month after Trump accused Russia of helping North Korea evade international sanctions meant to punish Pyongyang for its pursuit of a nuclear-armed missile capable of reaching the United States.

“Russia is not helping us at all with North Korea,” Trump said at the time.

Last week, North Korea slammed Trump’s State of the Union address, calling it “the height of Trump-style arrogance” and vowing that the regime’s nuclear capabilities would deter the president “and his lackeys from showing off on the Korean peninsula.”

Fox News reported that Pyongyang’s foreign ministry spokesman attacked Trump in an interview released by the state-run Korean Central News Agency. He disputed the president’s claim that the U.S. had “made incredible progress and achieved extraordinary success” in the last year.

“This is indeed the height of Trump-style arrogance, arbitrariness and self-conceit,” the spokesman said.”The whole world is deeply concerned, seeing as an omen of new disaster the address of Trump who asserted ‘America First’ and ‘unmatched power’ based on nuclear weapons while forcing other countries to submit themselves to the U.S. chauvinistic interest.”

The official said that North Korea’s “self-reliant defense capability with the nuclear force as its backbone will, however, completely deter Trump and his lackeys from showing off on the Korean peninsula. If Trump does not get rid of his anachronistic and dogmatic way of thinking, it will only bring about the consequence of further endangering security and future of the United States.”
