North Korea took another dig at President Donald Trump recently by calling him a "depraved and stupid guy" who insulted the "state and social system of the DPRK and the life of its people." Over the last few months, Pyongyang's supreme leader Kim Jong Un and Trump have been exchanging some harsh words with each other amid growing tensions in the Korean Peninsula.

On Sunday, a commentary in the state-run newspaper Minju Choson said the United States will regret letting someone like Trump occupy the Oval Office. The reclusive country went on to say that "Trump committed a hideous crime against the Korean people by malignantly hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK."

The commentary came just a day after North Korean officials said the regime would continue its nuclear buildup as long as South Korea and the U.S continued to engage in joint military exercises, which Pyongyang believes are provocations of a war.

"As long as there is continuous hostile policy against my country by the U.S. and as long as there are continued war games at our doorstep, there will not be negotiations," Han Tae Song, North Korea’s ambassador to the United Nations, told Reuters. "There are continued military exercises using nuclear assets as well as aircraft carriers and strategic bombers and then … raising such kinds of military exercises against my country."

Pyongyang has condemned the exercises, which began in August, as "reckless," claiming they heightened tensions in the Korean Peninsula.

Tensions have become increasingly heated between North Korea and the U.S. in recent months with Trump vowing to retaliate with "fire and fury" if Kim's regime continued testing its ballistic missiles.

While Trump said that all options are on the table when it comes to ending North Korea's growing nuclear prowess, Pyongyang's officials slammed Trump for igniting the risk of nuclear war with his 13-day trip to Asia, which included a visit to South Korea.

Kim's regime refrained from any provocation for more than 50 days since its testing of an intermediate-range missile over Japan in September.

Last week, North Korea called Trump a "mean trickster" and an "old slave of money." In a commentary, North Korea’s main party newspaper Rodong Sinmun accused Trump of committing the worst crime as he "dared malignantly hurt the dignity" of Kim for which the reclusive country sentenced the president to death.

During Trump's visit to South Korea, the U.S. president denounced the North’s "cruel dictatorship" in a speech to legislators in Seoul.

Trump also told Kim’s "rogue" regime not to test the United States and its allies. "Do not underestimate us," the president said. "And do not try us. We will defend our common security, our shared prosperity, and our sacred liberty."

On Monday, South Korea's spy agency said there is a possibility North Korea is developing an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the U.S. mainland this year. While there has been no sign of an imminent nuclear test, North's Punggye-ri complex appears ready for another detonation "at any time," the agency reportedly told lawmakers.

"The agency is closely following the developments because there is a possibility that North Korea could fire an array of ballistic missiles this year under the name of a satellite launch and peaceful development of space, but in fact to ratchet up its threats against the United States," the lawmakers told reporters after a closed-door briefing by the spy agency.

While the heated rhetoric between Trump and North Korea continues, Twitter users reacted to the latest comment by Pyongyang about the president.
