In his words: "Joe Biden can be sleepy and very slow, but he is not a 'mad dog'. It is actually something better than that."
Mr. Chairman, Joe Biden may be Sleepy and Very Slow, but he is not a “rabid dog.” He is actually somewhat better than that, but I am the only one who can get you where you have to be. You should act quickly, get the deal done. See you soon! https://t.co/kO2k14lTf7

Trump also did not miss the opportunity to flaunt his own qualities, since according to the current president, he is the only one who can put Kim "in his place", and urged the North Korean leader to "act shortly to arrive an agreement".
He said goodbye with the phrase "see you soon", which implied that they could meet again and resume the nuclear negotiations that have been stalled since the meeting between both leaders in February in Hanoi, Vietnam.
The official North Korean news agency KCNA lashed out at Biden in a comment, as he had "the recklessness of daring to slander the dignity of the supreme leadership" of North Korea.
"Rabid dogs like Biden can hurt many people if they are allowed to run. They must be beaten to death with a stick," the KCNA statement said.
Although the exact reasons that caused Pyongyang's anger are unknown, the statements were made following the publication of an announcement by the Biden campaign in which Trump's foreign policy was condemned with the following phrase: "dictators and tyrants are praised, while our allies step aside."
