With a little more than a week before Joe Biden takes over the White House, many are hoping the incoming Administration will bring peace to a fractured America.
However, there is one person who is definitely not happy with the President-elect.
North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-Un has issued a chilling warning to Biden ahead of his inauguration.
He has promised to expand his nuclear arsenal and declared America is still the 'greatest enemy' he faces.
Kim vowed to 'never change' North Korea's foreign policy with the US and told congress of his ruling Workers' Party that the DPRK's military will reign supreme.
According to state news agency KCNA, Kim said the US is the 'biggest obstacle for our revolution and our biggest enemy...no matter who is in power, the true nature of its policy against North Korea will never change'.
"Our foreign political activities should be focused and redirected on subduing the U.S., our biggest enemy and main obstacle to our innovated development," he said.
"No matter who is in power in the U.S., the true nature of the U.S. and its fundamental policies towards North Korea never change," Kim said, vowing to expand ties with "anti-imperialist, independent forces."
Kim said he had ordered his officials to develop missiles that could have multiple warheads, as well as underwater-launched nuclear missiles, spy satellites and nuclear-powered submarines.
The dictator and outgoing President Donald Trump had a much warmer relationship compared to Trump's predecessors. Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama tended to opt for sanctions as the best way of restricting North Korea.
Trump on the other hand attempted peace negotiations with the South, however, after three talks no nuclear disarmament agreement was made.
Kim and Joe Biden already have traded a war of words, with the President-elect once calling Kim a 'thug' and the North Korean dictator labelling his opponent a 'rabid dog' that needs to be 'beaten to death with a stick'.
Joe Biden said he would only meet with Kim Jong-Un if he decommissioned his nuclear weapons. Based off the speech Kim gave last week, it's highly unlikely that will happen without external pressure.
Despite Kim putting on a brave diplomatic face, he couldn't hide his emotions last year when speaking about the coronavirus.
The young dictator cried during his televised address to the North Korean people, as he begged for forgiveness over failures to deal with the pandemic.
The Supreme Leader was speaking to the nation during his commemorative speech to mark the 75th anniversary of the ruling Workers' Party of Korea when he became emotional.
According to reports, Kim spent around a third of his speech apologising to the country and stating that he sympathised with the hardships they have had to endure over recent months.
At one point he even removed his glasses to wipe tears from his eyes.
He said: "Our people have placed trust, as high as the sky and as deep as the sea, in me, but I have failed to always live up to it satisfactorily. I am really sorry for that.
"Although I am entrusted with the important responsibility to lead this country, upholding the cause of the great Comrades Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il; thanks to the trust of all the people, my efforts and sincerity have not been sufficient enough to rid our people of the difficulties in their lives."
