PYONGYANG, North Korea — North Korea has held a large anti-U.S. rally in its capital city, backing its leader Kim Jong Un as he exchanges insult-laden threats with President Donald Trump.
A huge crowd gathered in Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang on Saturday. They listened to speeches from senior officials excoriating the United States and its president.
A parade of marchers carried signs with slogans such as "decisive revenge" and "death to the American imperialists."
The rally capped two days of response to a combative speech by Trump at the U.N. earlier in the week. The U.S. president mocked Kim as a "Rocket Man" on a "suicide mission," and said that the U.S. "will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea" if forced to defend itself or its allies.
