New Delhi, August 10: North Koreans came out in support of their government after Trump’s “fire and fury” warning. Thousands of North Koreans were seen in the capital Pyongyang raising anti- Trump slogans. ” We can’t tolerate a person who is trying to get rid of our independence, development,” said a student.
