North Korea sentences Donald Trump to death for remarks about Kim Jong-un

North Korean media blasted the American President for insulting remarks made about the country's leader

North Korea has apparently sentenced Donald Trump to death for insulting Kim Jong-un.

The US President visited South Korea last week as part of his tour of Asia and in a speech given to legislators in the country, he condemned the secretive state as a "cruel dictatorship." 

Towards the end of the tour, Trump also called the North Korean leader "short and fat" on Twitter. 

In response, North Korean media has blasted the US President, claiming he could never be "pardoned" for daring to "malignantly hurt the supreme leadership's dignity."

An editorial in the newspaper of the ruling party, Rodong Sinmun, labeled him "a hideous criminal" who would be "sentenced to death by the Korean people."

The paper also mocked Trump's planned trip to the demilitarised zone - a tradition for senior US officials visiting South Korea - which had been cancelled due to poor weather. 

Tensions between North Korea and the United States have increased amid an increasingly personal war of words between the US President and North Korean leader.
