KFC’s tweet – which has been retweeted more than 3,000 times within a few hours of being posted – clearly echoes language in a tweet sent by President Donald Trump on Tuesday.
“North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the ‘Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times,'” Trump tweeted. “Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”
On Monday, Kim had said in a televised speech that he has a “nuclear button” that was “always on my desk.”
