Koreans rip into 'old man' Trump

World | AGENCIES 10 Dec 2019

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un wants Donald Trump to stop making "inappropriate, dangerous" comments, a Pyongyang official said yesterday, calling the US president an "impatient, old man."

Kim Yong Chol, who helped arrange a second summit between Kim Jong Un and Trump - it was a failure - said Washington was ignoring a year-end deadline to soften a demand for the North to halt nuclear activities. "We have nothing more to lose," he said.

Trump said on Sunday that Kim Jong Un risks losing "everything" if he resumes hostility and that North Korea must denuclearize. That was after Pyongyang had announced a "test of great significance."

Kim Jong Un, meanwhile, opened a mountain spa and ski resort at Yangdok so people could enjoy "high civilization under socialism.''

The resort has been one of Kim's major development projects along with another mountain resort in the town of Samjiyon and a summer resort being built in Wonsan town.
