Who has the bigger nuclear button? Kim Jong Un warns that he’s got a nuclear button on his desk. From CBS:

“The U.S. should know that the button for nuclear weapons is on my table,” he said during the speech, as provisionally translated by the AP. The official transcript of his address was expected to be released shortly. “The entire area of the U.S. mainland is within our nuclear strike range. … The United States can never start a war against me and our country.”

Last week, North Korean officials said it was a “pipe dream” for the United States to think the isolated nation would give up its nuclear weapons, and called tough new U.N. sanctions targeting the country “an act of war” that violate its sovereignty.

Trump replies (via Twitter, naturally) that he’s got a much bigger button on HIS desk. From The Independent:

Donald Trump has threatened North Korea with a nuclear strike, boasting of America’s superior capabilities. 
“North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the ‘Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.’ 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!” Mr Trump wrote on Twitter.

As the world has struggled to contain North Korea’s belligerence, with sanctions failing to deter the isolated state from repeatedly testing intercontinental ballistic missiles, Mr Trump has regularly taunted the nation and its leadership.

He has dubbed Mr Kim “Little Rocket Man” and repeatedly threatened to punish North Korea with a military response. That has fuelled a cycle of mutual animosity. Mr Kim dismissed Mr Trump as a “mentally deranged US dotard” in a rare address, and Pyongyang called Mr Trump’s threat before the United Nations to “totally destroy” North Korea if necessary a declaration of war.
