Skip to comments.Trump: I have a 'much bigger' button than Kim Jong Un
Posted on 01/02/2018 5:41:38 PM PST by Mariner
President Trump on Tuesday said that the nuclear launch button on his desk is "much bigger" and "more powerful" than that of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and that his button actually "works."
"North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the 'Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times,'" Trump tweeted. "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!"
Trump's comments came after Kim said in a New Year's Day speech that he had a nuclear launch button at his desk, and that the international community would have to accept North Korea's status as a nuclear-armed nation as a "reality."
In that address, Kim also said he was willing to send a delegation to the Winter Olympics in South Korea in February and engage in talks with Seoul about easing military tensions between the two countries.

It is inevitable.
And better now, than tomorrow or next week.
Same story, two different articles.
Agreed. Trump is not the president of SK, as bad as I feel for the resulting losses that will occur there.
He took the job. And he has the guts to make the tough decisions.
POTUS acts in the US’s interests first and always.
Trump might just have a real reset button for the Nork Nut, not like the fake one Hillary’s staff stole from a hotel Jacuzzi and gave to the Russians - mismarked as “over-charged”.
This is like some punk hoodlum disrespecting and threatening the Godfather. Once in, there is no way out and it only ends one way for the hoodlum. When does Kim wake up with a horse’s head in his bead. He already has the other end of the horse there.
Oh my dear God, that was really funny. It made me giggle.
This POTUS - Trump - does. Far too many before him have not. But you knew that...
The liberals on TV who haven’t passed out from the sight of a true man standing up to adversity are all claiming the end of the world is right around the corner.
But chances are, the little jack ass from NK is so unfamiliar with anyone speaking back at him, he’s going to go back and count his pros vs. the cons to actually starting a war with the US.
And it won’t take long to realize, he’ll never win the war of words with someone who can actually back his words up.
I wouldn’t want the job.
I dont know why anyone wants the job. Either LOVE or HATRED of country, really.
Or power, I guess.
I knew a kid maybe 30 years ago in my late teens whose father had died in a car accident.
He kept asking everyone where he could get a lot of Xanax. I kept thinking of telling his mother but I didn’t.
So he OD’s on Xanax and booze a few weeks later.
VERY VERY INDIRECTLY my fault and it haunted me for years.
Imagine THOUSANDS of people dying as a direct result of your orders.
I was dying hearing this in the car tonight. Damn right our Prezzys got a bigger one!!! And he knows how to use it!
Oh, dp, how sad. I can feel your guilt.
One friend was very upset that two of her besties (me and another girl) got into a college and she did not. She attempted to take her life. We felt terribly guilty too. Heavy burden on young people whose instinct is always to blame themselves.
That’s ONE thing Dr. Phil gets right. Young people ALWAYS find a way to blame themselves if there’s ANY way they can.
I am sorry about your friend and that is actually pretty crushing at that age to feel left behind.
But you didn’t do anything.
And even if I told the mother, what was she going to do? Lock him in his room?
It’s just life. And no one ever said it was fair :(
Thousands of officers and airmen of the Army Air Forces didn't have to imagine it.
Saddest is little kids. Parents get divorced, or worse, one dies. They ALWAYS blame themselves. They will always think something they did wrong caused it. Heartbreaking, really.
And if you had told his mother, chances are she wouldnt have believed it, or been able to stop him. She was probably bereaved and messed up herself.
THOUSANDS gave orders resulting in thousands of deaths?
I guess it’s possible.
