President Donald Trump turned a lot of heads when he tweeted after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un called him “old” this past weekend. In a response, Trump said, “I would NEVER call him ‘short and fat.’ Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend — and maybe someday that will happen!”
The tweet was a little surprising coming from a world leader in response to another leader who has threatened the U.S. multiple times. With the threat of nuclear war very real, and one country star thinks Trump is taking it way too lightly.
Chely Wright retweeted the President and wrote, “Jesus Pete, man. Stop this. You’re endangering millions of people with your childish impulses. C’mon.”
Some Twitter users agreed with Chely’s take. One named @JesseDowding writes, “I think Trump’s hatred of Kim Jong Un stems from jealousy. Kim gets to rule NoKo with the control and power that Trump longs to have over the U.S., but knows that he will never [have] that and can’t stand that someone else has what he so badly craves.”
Twitter user @Hunter2802 doesn’t believe the North Korean leader is going to do anything, though. That user writes, “Love how he pushes your buttons. It’s awesome! Calling it like he sees it. That short fat dictator isn’t going to do anything.”
Let’s hope that user is right.
