President Donald Trump works Twitter rants into his agenda regularly, so no one is surprised he started 2018 off with a social media frenzy. However, one especially unsettling tweet regarding a “nuclear button” has people in shock!
The leader of our country has taken it upon himself to match Kim Jong Un‘s “nuclear button” comment with a “more powerful” one of his own.
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!

This “mine is bigger than yours” argument has politicians, public figures, talk show hosts, celebrities, and even the EDM world talking today. Zedd, Diplo, and more have weighed in on the topic, and although it’s a natural defense mechanism is to counter this with humor — we all know this isn’t a joking matter.
Whether you’re a Trump supporter or not, you gotta admit posing a nuclear threat on Twitter is not most definitely not a good thing to do.
