Kim Jong Un has described Donald Trump as "deranged" and Pyongyang's foreign minister said North Korea may test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific as the recalcitrant nation hit back at the USA president's latest threats and sanctions.

The slur quickly trended on Twitter, and Merriam-Webster chimed in with a definition: dotard is a person in "a state or period of senile decay marked by decline of mental poise and alertness".

Tens of thousands of North Koreans packed into Kim II Sung Square in Pyongyang on Saturday as the government staged a massive rally against President Donald Trump and the United States.

"We are talking about two potentially nuclear powers coming into a confrontation being edged on by a level rhetoric seldom seen and certainly not heard within the confines of the UN General Assembly", he added.

Kim Jong Un is on the offensive, and the North Korean leader is not backing down from a war of words with the American president.

President Trump ordered new economic sanctions Thursday against any bank or other company doing business with North Korea, in response to Pyongyang's renegade nuclear program.

US analysts now estimate that North Korea may have as many as 60 nuclear weapons, according to a Washington Post report.

South Korea's Meteorological Administration (KMA) confirmed has, however, confirmed an event of 3.0 magnitude and said it occurred in the Kilju area of North Hamgyeong Province.

In an interview with DW, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said her government had a "clear disagreement with Trump over North Korea".

Kim's statement took a jab at Trump in part by echoing critics who have rebuked Trump's off-the-cuff remarks in the early months of his presidency.

Mr Ri did not comment on the military demonstration, but added there is no "chance that North Korea would be shaken an inch or change its stance due to the harsher sanctions by the hostile forces".
