North Korea’s state media agency KCNA accused the US President of escalating tensions between the two countries “to the extremes” and called on America to “oust” its header.
“No-one can predict that lunatic old man of the White House, lost to sense, will start a nuclear war,” KCNA said. “The world is undergoing unprecedented throes because of Trump, a notorious ‘political heretic’.”
“The US must oust the lunatic old man from power and withdraw the hostile policy towards the DPRK at once in order to get rid of the abyss of doom.

“The US had better make a decisive choice ... if it does not want a horrible nuclear disaster and tragic doom.”
The KCNA's calls for Mr Trump's removal come after the billionaire attacked the “haters and fools” who he said are preventing the development of good relations forming between the US and Russia.
“When will all the haters and fools out there realise that having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing,” Mr Trump tweeted.
