Trump’s threat to “totally destroy” the rogue state is clearly not being taken very seriously by officials in Pyongyang.
And while the US President called the tubby tyrant “rocket man”, the North were quick to compare Mr Trump to a “barking dog”.
But now, in an apparent bid to rub salt into the wounds, Kim has been photographed laughing and joking while admiring an apple orchard.
Snapped alongside his team of advisors, the dictator is a picture of happiness as he inspects the fruit in a black outfit.
The despot took time off from testing ballistic missiles to visit an orchard in Kwail county, South Hwanghae province.
And it is not the first time he has taken a break to gaze at the fruits of his country’s labour after he was also pictured on a guilty pleasure trip to a pig farm.
But chillingly, that came before a string of missile tests and promises to “sink” all American warships in the Korean peninsular.
And the latest set of images could pave the way for more tests to come.
North Korea conducted its sixth and largest nuclear test on September 3 and has launched numerous missiles this year.
These include two intercontinental ballistic missiles and two other rockets that flew over Japan.
