President Trump referred to Kim Jong Un as 'Rocket Man' on Twitter


President Trump updated his Twitter followers on tense relations between North Korea and the United States and referred to Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man."

In a tweet sent on Sunday morning, Trump said he spoke to South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Saturday night about North Korea's nuclear threats. Trump said that the South Korean President told him there were long gas lines forming in North Korea.

Trump has tweeted directly about Kim in the past. In August, Trump responded to North Korea's threat of targeting Guam by saying military solutions were "fully in place, locked and loaded."

Last week, North Korea said that the United States would pay a "heavy price" if it followed through with harsh sanctions against the country. The country also fired its longest-ever test flight of a ballistic missile on Friday. The weapon flew over Japan into the Pacific Ocean.

Tensions continue to rise as leaders from across the world gather in New York City this week for the U.N. General Assembly. President Trump will speak at the gathering on Tuesday.
