North Korea issued a scathing criticism of President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address, calling it “the height of Trump-style arrogance,” and saying Pyongyang’s nuclear capabilities will “deter Trump and his lackeys from showing off on the Korean Peninsula.”

"If Trump does not get rid of his anachronistic and dogmatic way of thinking, it will only bring about the consequence of further endangering security and future of the United States,” said a spokesperson of the North’s foreign ministry in comments published on Yonhap, the state-run Korean Central News Agency.

Trump in his speech called the North Korean regime “depraved,” and said the U.S. was “waging a campaign of maximum pressure to prevent that from happening.”

Trump also said the U.S. must “modernize and rebuild our nuclear arsenal” to “deter any acts of aggression.”

“Perhaps someday in the future there will be a magical moment when the countries of the world will get together to eliminate their nuclear weapons,” Trump said. “Unfortunately, we are not there yet.”

North Korea’s comments come days after CIA Director Mike Pompeo said Pyongyang could have a nuclear weapon capable of striking the U.S. within a “handful of months.”

"It is also our judgment that our partners who are also at risk from North Korea have now come to understand that it is Kim Jong Un that is presenting this risk," Pompeo told CBS News partner network BBC News in an interview aired Monday evening. "I think that America has done an excellent job – all of our senior leaders – of communicating to the world the seriousness with which this threat needs to be undertaken."
