Trump left Kim Jong-un right

Two charismatic men, both of which are hairstyle pioneers and have the nations they lead head over heels. Who comes to mind?

Presenting, in no particular order, Kim Jong-un and  President Donald Trump. Yes, you probably guessed, they’re at it again. This time, North Korea has threatened to attack the U.S territory and strategic military base of Guam. In response, Donald Trump has threatened that “they’ll be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen”. It’s arguable that this rhetoric is simply giving North Korea the reaction they want, in proving they can provoke such a reaction from a power like America, who are taking their nuclear stance seriously. Furthermore, responses like this perpetuate America as a threat to the reclusive nation of North Korea, which strengthens Kim Jong-un’s position in the eyes of his people.

Like Kim Jong-Un, Trump is a controversial character, often regarded as a complete imbecile with no good intentions on the world stage. Both leaders hardly represent their countries at all, acting on impulse to strengthen their political standing, which gets people hyped up in the drama of their intermittent squabbling. Trump equally shows little interest in diplomacy because he’s always on the offensive, just like when he insulted the LGBT community a short while back. However, the threat of a real nuclear response between both countries remains a genuine possibility, which means we’ll continue to follow their spats, just like Connor who and Floyd who?
