How high do you think are the chances of the United States President Donald Trump’s Twitter accounting getting suspended for ‘threatening violence’ against North Korea? That is what actor Kal Penn wants to know. Twitter users have been reporting personal account, @realDonaldTrump, for threatening violence against North Korea in a tweet. Trump’s tweet on the microblogging site reads, TrumpMilitary solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully, Kim Jong Un will find another path!”

Following Trump’s fire and fury remark, North Korea said that it is considering strikes near US strategic military installations in Guam. Trump had threatened Pyongyang over its missile program days after the UN Security Council levied new sanctions on North Korea over its growing nuclear arsenal. However, along with the actor, may Twitter users also joined in saying that threatening on social media was a clear disagreement of its terms and conditions. The Indian origin actor sharing screenshots of the terms in a tweet said, “Seems pretty clear that you can’t threaten mass murder via nuclear war, right @twitter? Asking for 7.4 billion friends.” Most agreed with Penn and reported the tweet to Twitter, however, some felt there was no harm in the tweet. North Koreans Come Out in Support of Kim Jong-un After Donald Trump Issues ‘Fire And Fury’ Warning

Here is the US President Donald Trump’s tweet:

Military solutions are now fully in place,locked and loaded,should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!

Here is what Kal Penn had to say:

Hey @Twitter, is threatening nuclear war not a violation of terms of service? https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/895970429734711298

This isn’t funny anymore. He is clearly mentally ill and in dire need of assistance. @flotus or someone inside the WH needs to stand up.

Twitter would be a hero to the world if it suspended Trump’s account.

According to official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), Pyongyang said it’s “now carefully examining the operational plan for making an enveloping fire at the areas around Guam with medium-to-long-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12”. While experts had said it would take another two or three years for North Korea to develop a nuclear-tipped ICB, Pyongyang last month tested two ICBMs. Reportedly, North Korea angrily threatening retaliation against the United States and vowed that new UN sanctions would not stop it from developing its nuclear arsenal. (Edited by Nithya Nair)
