President Donald Trump continues his tough stance against rogue state North Korea and its dictator Kim Jong-un despite the earlier statement of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that diplomatic efforts are being opened to negotiate with the isolated Asian country. As far as Trump is concerned, it’s no longer the time to be “nice” to the dictator.

The President tweeted: “Being nice to Rocket Man hasn’t worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed. I won’t fail.”

Prior to that, Trump also tweeted a message for Tillerson telling him to “’stop wasting his time” trying to negotiate with the regime of Kim. Trump wrote: “I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man. Save your energy, Rex, we’ll do what needs to be done!”

Trump and Kim have been engaging in the media war, something the North Koreans seem to be taking increasingly more seriously. North Korea’s foreign minister last week said that Trump’s tweets “threatening the lives of North Koreans are tantamount to a declaration of war.”

But the Trump administration has stated the United States is not at war with the belligerent nation. Trump has issued tough warnings against it in his UN speech last month if Kim does not stop his nuclear ambitions that threaten the peace and security of the region affecting close U.S. allies as South Korea and Japan.

Kim has been in power since 2011.

The UN has been stepping up efforts to impose stricter sanctions against North Korea, and members have been responding, including North Korea trade partner China who has instructed all North Korea-owned businesses in China to shut down.
