"The North Korean blast at Biden is noteworthy for calling the Democratic candidate 'a fool of low IQ.' President Trump has'a bizarre obsession' with IQKCNA's use of 'low IQ' in reference to Biden wasa winktoward President Trump." @CSISKoreaChair
KCNA: "There is no change at all in the American evil ambition to conquer the DPRK by force. When cloud is frequent, rain will follow. The U.S. shouldbear in mind that its hostile acts will only bringtensionUse of strength is not at all a monopoly of the United States."
KCNA: "The U.S. has continued to pursue its strategy of 'maximum pressure' against us and attempted to suffocate us economically. Since August 2018, the U.S. has imposed arbitrary sanctions11 times on more than 40 entitiesfromDPRK, China, Russia, Singapore and S. Africa."
KCNA: "Even after the U.S. committed to an 'establishment of new DPRK-U.S. relations', Bolton, Pompeoand other high-ranking officialshave insulted the dignity of our supreme leadership and spitted out abusive language to the DPRK, calling it as 'rogue government.'"

on North Korea and UN Security Council Resolutions: "A short-range missile is that a violation Yes." Q - to clarify you do view the short-range testing by North Korea as a breach of the UN Security Council @ActingSecDef Shanahan: "The short-range testing, yes"
Gen. Dunford says "People can be skeptical of the diplomatic track" but the North Korea situation was "worse in 2015 and 2016" than it is now
: I was actually sticking up for Sleepy Joe Biden while on foreign soil. Kim Jong Un called him a "low IQ idiot," and many other things, whereas I related the quote of Chairman Kim as a much softer "low IQ individual." Who could possibly be upset with that

KCNA: "Bolton [is] not a security adviserbut a security-destroying adviser who is wrecking peace and security. It is not at all strange that perverse words always come out from the mouth of a structurally defective guy, and such a human defect deserves an earlier vanishing."
KCNA: "It is not a mere coincidence that criticisms are being heard in the U.S. that Bolton is a warmonger whispering war to the President when he himself evaded military service, saying he had no desire to die in a Southeast Asian rice paddy."
KCNA: "Bolton, as he confessed himself, played a 'hammer' to 'shatter' the 1994 DPRK-U.S. Agreed Framework, and he is well-known as an anti-DPRK 'war maniac' who fabricateddesignation of our country as 'axis of evil', preemptive strike and government change."
KCNA: "It takes little insight to determine that Bolton clearly does have a different mental structure from ordinary people."
KCNA: "Our military drill neither targeted anyone nor endangered the surrounding countries, but Bolton makes dogged claims that it constitutes a violation of the 'resolutions', impudently poking his nose into other's internal matters."
KCNA: "If any object is launched, it is bound to fly in trajectory. What the U.S. is taking the issue is not about the range but the prohibition of the launch itself using ballistic technology. This istantamount to a demand that the DPRK should give up its self-defensive right"
KCNA: "As for the UNSC 'resolutions' which Bolton recklessly referred to, we have neither recognized nor bound by them, because those 'resolutions' are illegal and outrageous ones that completely deny the rights to existence and development of a sovereign state."
KCNA: "Bolton, U.S. National Security Adviser has taken the issue over the regular military drill of our army, claiming that it is a violation of the "resolutions" of the United Nations Security Council. His claim is indeed much more than ignorant."
"I think I agree with him on that," @POTUS says of Kim Jong Un calling @JoeBiden a "low IQ individual."
Shinzo Abe: Trump is trying to mediate between Japan and North Korea
KCNA: "The Japanese reactionaries talk about 'abduction by north Korea' whenever they cannot find missing personsthe Japanese reactionaries went so shameless as to deliberately link all the missing cases caused by the social evils rampant in Japan to the DPRK."
DPRK dispatch terms @AmbJohnBolton a "war monger" and a "defective human product."
North Korea calls US National Security Advisor John Bolton a "human defect" that should be banished
KCNA dispatch also says giving up the test launches would violate its right of self defense.
As @POTUS and @AbeShinzo discuss North Korea here, the DPRK official news agency says @AmbJohnBolton was wrong to say its recent missile launches violated UN resolutions.
