'Mine is bigger than yours': Trump snubs Kim Jong-un reminding him that he too has a 'nuclear button' that 'actually works'
After North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un threatened the United States with a chilling New Year message that the nuclear button was always on his desk and within his reach, US President Donald Trump has responded with a tweet in his usual exuberant style.

Snubbing the North Korean despot, Trump boastfully reminded him that his nuke button is "much bigger and more powerful" than his and it "actually works".

Trump tweeted: "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!"

Kim Jong-un had taunted the US President that he cannot attack North Korea as the country's nukes were now capable of reaching anywhere in the US.

The North Korean tyrant leader had used his New Year address that was broadcast on state television to threaten the Trump administration, barely days after the UN Security Council imposed fresh sanctions restricting sale of oil to North Korea.

In his address, Kim warned the Americans that his nuclear arsenal is "reality, not a threat", also adding that a "nuclear button" was right on his desk.

He said, "The entire United States is within range of our nuclear weapons, and the nuclear button is always on my table."

Donald Trump's latest tweet comes in wake of UN ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley's recent warning that North Korea may be preparing for another missile test.

In defiance of international agreements, China and Russia have been accused of secretly supplying oil to North Korea. Russia has even offered to mediate for de-escalation of mounting tensions between the United States and North Korea.
