White House press secretary Sarah Sanders pushed back when confronted by reporters on Wednesday about President Donald Trump’s tweet directed at North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

When one reporter argued the president was “taunting” a world leader with the strongly worded tweet, Sanders shot back a blunt response.
“It’s a taunting tweet to say that he has a larger nuclear button,” the reporter said.
“I think it’s just a fact,” Sanders responded.
