Foreign banks will have to decide whether to work with the US or do business with North Korea, President Trump said Thursday at the United Nations General Assembly during a meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and other world leaders. And let's just say he's not too pleased with Trump's comments.
The conflict in eastern Ukraine between Kyiv's forces and Russia-backed separatists has killed more than 10,000 people since it erupted in April 2014. Some 90 percent of North Korean economic activity involves China, and Chinese entities are the main avenue for North Korea's limited global financial transactions.
The North Korean leader concluded his statement by saying that he will "surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire".
"He added that he was "thinking hard" about his response, but Mr Trump will "pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying" North Korea".
"In the end you can't sanction North Korea into collapse or compliance".

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reacted sharply to U.S. President Donald Trump's recent United Nations address in a very rare statement reported Friday, warning that Washington could face the "highest level of hard-line countermeasure". Trump called it "a lucky word".

Ri's comments followed Kim's extraordinary statement lashing out at Trump, vowing the American leader would "pay dearly" for his threat to destroy North Korea.
Following Trump's threat of "fire and fury" over Pyongyang's missile programme in August, the North said it was considering strikes near United States strategic military installations in the Pacific territory of Guam.
"We have reduced all our diplomatic measures as much as possible to try and see how we can get to him (Kim)", she said.
