In the week of September 18, the United Nations uncertainly awaited President Trump at the U.N. General Assembly. On the President´s hit list of topics to discuss: the growing issue of North Korea.

North Korea’s recent missile launches have created a dilemma for the U.S. However the string of North Korea missile launches has actually been going on since 1984, according to CBS. After the current North Korean leader, Kim Jong – Un came to power in March 2014, the number of missile tests increased dramatically and brought the issue to much of the world’s attention.

The continued dilemma has prompted the United Nations to put sanctions on North Korea in the hope of stopping or at least slowing the highly ambitious Kim Jong – Un. ¨Today, we are saying that the world will never accept a nuclear armed North Korea …We are done trying to prod the regime to do the right thing, we are now trying to stop it from having the ability to do the wrong thing.¨ Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, told CNN.

President Trump seems to strongly agree. Since the beginning of the presidential election, he has expressed his dislike of North Korea and its leader, Kim Jong – Un. He repeatedly verbally insults the North Korean leader, cubbing him with titles such as “madman,” and most recently ¨rocket man¨.

In his speech at the United Nations assembly he criticized North Korea, saying the country’s “…reckless pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles threatens the entire world with unthinkable loss of human life.¨   

North Korea has claimed they have missiles that could reach the US, though this can not be proven. However, North Korea has recently launched missiles over Japan, causing much concern. Many even wonder why Japan never shoot down the missile. The world is on edge to see what North Korea’s next action will be, all while also wishing they won´t find out.  

Nevertheless, North Korea is not just a safety hazard to the world. Many suggest Kim Jong – Un could be starving his own people as well.

President Trump expressed his disgust and discontent toward North Korea in more ways than their missile launches. ¨No one has shown more contempt for other nations and for the wellbeing of their people than the depraved regime of North Korea. It is responsible for the starvation deaths of millions of North Koreans, and for the imprisonment, killing, and torture of countless more.¨

This is certainly a concern for many as the fact remains no one really knows is happening in North Korea due to its extreme secrecy. There have been multiple reports of starving and health deprived North Koreans, though it is hard to decipher truth from myth.

North Korean foreign minister, Ri Yong Ho, seemed to be outraged by Trump’s comments at the UN, calling President Trump a ¨barking dog¨. He did not express any desire to communicate with the President on this issue as of late.

So the conflict continues. Absurd nicknames, as well as ballistic missiles are continuing to be fired. At present, we can hope that the issue can be resolved soon, and above all peacefully.
