North Korea has accused the Trump administration of being a billionaires’ club that harbors a “policy of racism” while increasing inequality, denying freedom of the press and health care to it’s citizens.
The claims were published in a report titled “White Paper on Human Rights Violations in the U.S. in 2017” by the Institute of International Studies in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. It claims that human rights have decreased in the U.S. since President Trump took office.
“Racial discrimination and misanthropy are serious maladies inherent to the social system of the U.S., and they have been aggravated since Trump took office,” the paper said. “The racial violence that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12 is a typical example of the acme of the current administration’s policy of racism.”
The paper also accused Trump of filling his cabinet with billionaires citing individuals including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnunchin and Secretary of Defense James Mattis.
“The total assets of public servants at the level of deputy secretary and above of the current administration are worth $14 billion,” the paper said.
The paper came in response to Trump’s State of the Union speech on Tuesday, where he criticized North Korea for human rights violations, called Kim Jong Un “depraved”, and said their nuclear weapons could soon be a threat to the U.S.
