North Korea recently called Donald Trump “mentally ill” in a stream of propaganda delivered to Seoul

KCNA made the announcement prior to the arrival of the US President in neighbouring South Korea.

The news agency said: “He absolutely needs medicine to cure his psychical disorder.”

The state mouthpiece stated that it was reacting to the “bellicose and irresponsible rhetoric” from the “master of invective”, most likely referring to promises from Trump to “totally destroy North Korea”.

The latest insults from Pyongyang come as the country recently called Donald Trump “mentally ill” in a stream of propaganda delivered to South Korea.

The rogue nation delivered its deluge of insults via balloons sent across the Korea Demilitarised Zone (DMZ).

The fliers dropped into the South Korean capital of Seoul labelled the President “mentally ill” and a “dotard”.

With both Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump trading insults, it appears that the latter may not be able to act on his promises of “fire and fury” after Democrat Senators recently introduced a Bill to prevent Donald Trump from launching a nuclear first strike against North Korea without approval from Congress.

Senator Chris Murphy introduced the Bill yesterday, the co-sponsors include Bernie Sanders, Liz Warren and Cory Booker, along with Brian Schatz, Tammy Duckworth, Jeff Merkley and Tom Udall.

The senators cited the “escalation of irresponsible rhetoric” and “contradictory behaviour from Trump and officials in his administration”.

Mr Murphy said: “We need to take the President seriously when he threatens war because the dam could break at any moment.

“Republican and Democratic senators are alarmed over the path we’re on, and it’s important we join forces to reclaim Congress’ constitutional role in matters of war and peace before there’s no turning back.”

He added: “This bill shouldn’t be controversial since it essentially restates current law, but Congress needs to make it crystal clear that the President does not have the authority to take preemptive military action in North Korea without congressional consent.”
