President Trump at the United Nations on Tuesday warned North Korea to stop with the shenanigans.

Addressing a room full of foreign leaders, with North Korean diplomats seated in the front row, Trump addressed the rogue nation specifically, and its reputation of human rights violations.

"No one has shown more contempt... than the depraved regime in North Korea," Trump said, going on to refer to the rogue nation's leader Kim Jong-Un as "Rocket Man."

He also warned that the U.S. would have no problem "totally destroying" North Korea if it didn't get its act together.
