North Korea says Trump has declared war and will shoot down US fighter jets

North Korea said US President Donald Trump has declared war and it will shoot down US warplanes that skirt its territory even if they are outside its airspace.

This is the latest in the escalation between the US and North Korea’s war of words that may slip into a deadly military conflict.

This came after Kim Jong-un’s Foreign Minister said that Trump has declared war on North Korea following his statement that the North Korean leadership will not be around much longer.

‘Trump claimed our leadership would not be around much longer. He declared a war on our country,’ said Ri Yong-ho, the North Korean Foreign Affairs minister.

Ri Yong-ho insisted all options are on the table for Pyongyang and that his nation now reserves the right to shoot down US planes even if they are not in Korea’s airspace.

The official, talking to reporters in New York, said: ‘The whole world should clearly remember it was the US who first declared war on our country.

‘Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make countermeasures, including the right to shoot down United States strategic bombers even when they are not inside the airspace border of our country,’ the Mail Online reported.

Last week Trump made one of the most aggressive speech ever at the United Nations, saying he will annihilate North Korea and its leadership.


  1. NK always act like gangsters when they denied sinking SK boat and shell one of SK island, they can do what they wanted others cannot comment or complaint abt them but when US and SK doing something NK will accused them of provoking. NK leader’s mislead his own peoples and is a big mistakes.

  2. North Korea is the one that provoke war against US. North Korea can fly their rocket over Japan and do not allow US plane to be around the area. They can do what they like and others cannot. That is BULLY just because they have Nuclear weapons to threaten country and people. It is just like having a gun and everyone has to obey him, What he does is right and can do others can’t. North Korea Foreign Minister can make such a statement is really a shame. They should explain why they keep using Nuclear test to provoke and even flew over Japan.

    • You do know that the US has a policy of preemptive strike?

      This means that the US President, aka Commander in Chief of all US military forces, does not have to go through Congressional approval or UN approval to strike at countries.

      North Korea knows about this from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen etc that the US have take unilateral military action against them.

      Of course they would take any excuses they can find to justify defending themselves especially with that orange clad monster with a loose cannon running the world’s powerful military.

  3. Imperialist terrorist USA killed more people than North Korea. North Korea has not invaded a single country since the Korean War. Since then, USA has invaded countless countries in the name of “freedom and democracy”, supported repressive dictatorships around the world and increased terrorism in the Middle East by 65x.
