North Korea warns United States of an unwelcome ‘Christmas gift’

North Korea said Tuesday that dialogue with the United States has been nothing but a “foolish trick” and warned Washington that it could be on the receiving of an unwelcome Christmas gift.

The North Korean regime has given the United States until the end of the year to drop its “hostile policy,” come up with a new approach to talks and offer concessions in return for its decision to end nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) tests in 2018.

Despite the tensions between the two countries, President Trump sounded an almost affectionate note about Kim Jong Un in London on Tuesday, expressing his confidence that North Korea would still denuclearize. But he also noted that the North Korean leader “likes sending rockets up, doesn’t he?”
