North Korea calls President Trump a 'strangler of peace'

North Korea continued its attacks on President Donald Trump Sunday calling him a “war merchant and strangler of peace."

A commentary in the Rodong Sinmun state newspaper that was posted by the Korean Central News Agency specifically called out Trump’s sale of weapons to South Korea and Japan, according to a CNN report.

“Trump called for total destruction of our state and people at the UN arena and continues to bring nuclear strategic assets into South Korea and its vicinity, pushing the situation on the peninsula to the brink of war,” the commentary read.

”The US is the war merchant and strangler of peace which gives rise to dispute and conflicts around the world in order to draw water to its mill regardless of the existence of mankind."
