In a tweet on Tuesday night, US President Donald Trump bragged that in comparison to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s nuclear launch button, his is “much bigger & more powerful.” Earlier this week, Kim said that his button is always on his desk.

After North Korean leader Kim Jong-un claimed that his country’s nuclear button is always on his desk, US President Donald Trump taunted the dictator on Twitter, saying that his nuclear button is “much bigger.”

“North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the ‘Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.’ 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 tweeted.

During a speech on New Year’s Day, Kim emphasized that Pyongyang’s nuclear launch button “is always on his desk.” Kim also said that “the nuclear powers of North Korea are a reality, not just a threat” and reiterated that his country has the capability of striking the US mainland.
