October 1999: ‘Sort of wacko‘
January 2000: ‘Very bad people’
September 2015, Trump called Kim a “maniac”
Feb 2016: “I mean this guy’s a bad dude

The Chinese Envoy, who just returned from North Korea, seems to have had no impact on Little Rocket Man. Hard to believe his people, and the military, put up with living in such horrible conditions. Russia and China condemned the launch.
