The footage released by Kim Jong-Un’s state run media featured a macabre shot of Trump at cemetery, apparently in Guam, and Vice President Mike Pence engulfed in flames.

The video showed North Korea launching the ballistic missiles and its troops marching in unison through Pyongyang.
‘Americans should live with their eyes and ears wide open,’ the caption is believed to read.
It goes on: ‘They will be tormented day and night by the Hwasong-12 rockets without knowing when they will be launched. They will be in jitters.’
The video emerges shortly after the reclusive nation threatened to turn the US into ‘a heap of ashes’ in a typically aggressive response to the American war games in the neighboring South.
South Korea’s president, Moon Jae-in, said the drills are defensive in nature and necessary because of repeated provocations by North Korea.
Today’s fiery confrontation at the UN was sparked when the US envoy highlighted Trump’s focus on protecting his nation from North Korea – and that he was ‘ready to use ‘the full range of capabilities at our disposal’ to do so.
He added: ‘Its recent ICBM tests are another example of the dangerous reckless behavior of the North that is deestablishing the region and beyond.’
Meanwhile North Korea diplomat Ju Yong Chol said that measures taken by his country to strengthen its nuclear deterrent and develop inter-continental rockets were ‘justifiable and a legitimate option’.
He said: ‘As long as the US hostile policy and nuclear threat remains unchallenged, the DPRK will never place its self-defensive nuclear deterrence on the negotiating table
North Korea, for its part, threatened to launch missiles toward the American territory of Guam.
A statement by the state-run Korean Central News Agency branded the US ‘imperialists’ and South Korea as ‘war maniacs’.
‘The US imperialists and the South Korean war maniacs Monday launched Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military drills aimed at a preemptive attack on the DPRK,’ KCNA stated according to Xinhua news agency.
‘Even mercenaries from seven vassal countries, including Australia and the UK, have joined them.
The KCNA also attacked Trump, describing him as a leader who frequently tweets ‘weird articles of his ego-driven thoughts’ and ‘spouts rubbish’ to give his assistants a hard time.
This came after US military commanders dismissed the calls for Washington and Seoul to pause or downsize their joint military exercises.
No field training like live-fire exercises or tank maneuvering is involved in the drills, in which alliance officers sit at computers to practice how they would engage in battles and hone their decision-making capabilities.
