Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was denounced by many on social media after he compared the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un with Adolf Hitler. As President Donald Trump and Biden, on Thursday night, October 22, exchanged blows over their approach towards North Korea during the final presidential debate in Nashville, Tennesse, the Republican touted his record with the Pyongyang leader over the last four years and defended his relationship with Kim. "Having a good relationship with leaders of other countries is a good thing," Trump said during the debate, to which the former vice-president clapped back and said: "We had a good relationship with Hitler before he invaded the rest of Europe."

Although there were some who appreciated Biden's response, several others took to Twitter to state that the Democratic nominee's stance on North Korea would "wreck" America's diplomatic relations with the hermit nation. One user wrote: "Biden just compared North Korea to Nazi Germany. F**king absurd. Kim Jong Un is a menace *against his own people*, he has 0 interest in territorial expansion like Hitler did. Democrats LOVE going to the right of Republicans on foreign policy to look like tough guys. #Debates2020."

Another said: "The most egregious part was when Biden ridiculously compared Kim Jong Un to Hitler, essentially guaranteeing the diplomatic relationship would already be wrecked the moment he takes office." A third added: "To compare Kim Jong Un to Hitler is... a stretch. And throwing sanctions on DPRK would make them more likely to be aggressive and start a war with us. Biden and his administration would be total war hawks." A fourth quipped: "Biden just compared Kim Jong Un to Hitler... yeah, I think we’ll have to worry about North Korea again if Biden wins." Another wrote: "Biden compared Kim Jong Un to Hitler. So we now know of at least one area/policy where he will definitely be worse than Trump."

One suggested that if Biden wins the 2020 presidential election, the US will be in a nuclear war with North Korea: "The most shocking moment was when Biden compared Kim Jong Un with Hitler. I think he will not be to happy about it. Not very diplomatic! Not very presidential Joe! He lost his control over his words #NationalSecrurityThreat! If Biden wins, we are in a nuclear war with North Korea." The same nuclear war concern was expressed when Trump took office in the White House.

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 

Trump met with Kim in 2018 during a summit in Singapore, marking it as the first-ever meeting between the leaders of the two countries. The Republican had sought to build build a relationsip with the North Korean leader considering the latter's persuit of nuclear weaponry as the two nations entered a standoff over missiles. Trump's former national security adviser, John Bolton, had previously said that Trump viewed diplomacy with the North Korean leader as dating, and “always wanted to be the one who broke up with the girl first” after the US faced difficulties arranging a second meeting with Kim after the 2018 summit.
