The notion of a substantive sit-down between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump – the most gazed-upon figures of this moment in the planet's history – is a staggering prospect and a potential logistical nightmare if the two countries ever tried to make it happen.

North Korea said Trump has 'declared war'


North Korea's foreign minister said Monday that President Trump's latest remarks were a "declaration of war" against his country, Reuters reported. As a result, he said that his country reserves the right to engage in countermeasures, including shooting down U.S. strategic bombers that aren't in North Korean airspace.

“The whole world should clearly remember it was the U.S. who first declared war on our country,” Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told reporters in New York.

“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.”

On Saturday, Trump made new threats against Pyongyang after its foreign minister delivered a fiery speech, describing the commander-in-chief as a "mentally deranged person full of megalomania" on a "suicide mission."

Trump responded on Twitter.

"If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!" he said.
