    As the display of martial power conducted by a US naval strikeforce off the coast of Korea apparently had little effect on Pyongyang’s determination to continue developing its ballistic missile program, the President of the United States turned to an apparently more effective tool – Twitter!

    Fresh from his latest social media escapade involving the retweet of anti-Muslim videos shared by a British right-wing activist, US President Donald Trump went on to continue his ‘Twitter war’ with North Korea.

    In his latest invective aimed at North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, whom the president has dubbed "Little Rocket Man", Trump lamented that the Chinese envoy’s trip to North Korea apparently had no impact on Pyongyang, and pitied the living conditions of the North Korean people.

    The president’s tweet elicited a string of negative responses from other Twitter users, with people wondering if this kind of name calling actually helps defuse tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
