What did South Korean media make of Donald Trump’s UN speech?
Right-leaning media gave Trump extensive coverage, while the left opted for a domestic focus

U.S. President Donald Trump addressed the United Nations on Tuesday, in a typically bombastic speech in which he said North Korea, if it continued to threaten his country and its allies, would face "total destruction".

The rhetoric was remarkable: Presidents have threatened North Korea in this way before, but coming from the unpredictable Donald Trump, in front of dozens of global leaders, it suggests the U.S. may increasingly be looking seriously towards military action.
