The tyrant had tough words for Trump, according to the nation's state-run news paper Minju Choson.
Jong un's message to the United States says North Korea will "turn the US into a pile of ash" if Trump tries to stop its nuclear program by force.

The latest threat to the U.S. is more bad news after Kim launched an intercontinental ballistic missile on the 4th of July. Many experts say the nation is capable of reaching Alaska and even the west coast.
