North Korea has claimed Donald Trump is worse than Adolf Hitler and the US is "an arch-criminal of wrecking global environment."
The comments were published in the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Sunday (October 15), which also claimed America “is not qualified to talk about global peace, security and civilisation.”
This is thought to be a reference to the US decision to leave both the UN World Heritage agency Unesco and the Paris climate deal, Newsweek reported.
The piece suggested this move has been branded internationally as an "act surpassing the toxic gas atrocities by Hitler" as well as a "crime to annihilate humankind by making the whole green planet a room filled with toxic gas."
However the agency did not give any further details about who made the comment.
Yesterday (October 18) the KCNA also claimed the US is “the empire of evil which inflicted the nuclear holocaust on humankind for the first time in history."
This article spoke about the bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and claimed the US President is making threats to cause similar destruction again.
As evidence it cited a report released by NBC, citing three anonymous security officials, whih claimed Trump called for America's nuclear arsenal to be increased.
But North Korea itself has broken several rulings with its own nuclear and ballistic weapons program despite UN sanctions and military pressure from the US.
Donald Trump announced earlier this year in June that it would pull out of the climate deal, which encourages countries to reduce pollution, unless it is renegotiated.
Then Trump recently said America would leave Unesco due to its alleged anti-Israel bias. Later Israel also said it would leave.
