She Said

SHE:  The issues with Donald Trump’s twitter have been discussed since he announced his campaign in June of 2015. People have debated whether the controversial statements he has tweeted should worry us, or if we should brush them off. 

“Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me ‘old’ when I would NEVER call him ‘short and fat?’ Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend- and maybe someday that will happen!” tweeted Trump.

The President of the United States decided it was a smart idea to type this out and post it for the whole world to see. He called Kim Jong-un, the leader of North Korea, a man known for enacting nuclear threats, short and fat. Trump responds like a teenage girl who is fighting with someone who talked behind her back. This was not the only time he tweeted about Kim Jong-un either. He continues to ignore the line between professional and personal behavior.

“North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the ‘Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.’ Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a nuclear button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my button works!” tweeted Trump.

It seems like 2018 will be the year of the second cold war, where two countries continue to make threats. He is making claims that are provoking Kim Jong-un to push the “nuclear button” that is apparently on his desk at all times. Trump tweets multiple times a day; how long before he tweets something so insane, North Korea actually drops the nuclear bombs, and starts a war.
