President Trump Strikes Back at 'Short and Fat' Kim Jong Un

North Korean state media said this week that "no-one can predict when the lunatic old man of the White House, lost to sense, will start a nuclear war", referring to Trump's aggressive rhetoric toward Kim Jong Un.

Trump is now in Vietnam attending the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, but he took the time to tweet: "Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old, ' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat?'".

Asked at a news conference in Vietnam if he could see himself being friends with Mr Kim, the president said: "That might be a unusual thing to happen but it's a possibility".

On Aug. 8, Trump threatened the regime with "fire and fury like the world has never seen", leading Kim to say he would consider sending missiles into the waters off the coast of Guam in "mid-August". That might be a odd thing that happens.

She said she was protesting against Donald Trump's attitude to women and his failure to meet with human rights activists in Vietnam. "If that did happen, it would be a good thing for, I can tell you, for North Korea". This isn't the first time North Korea have employed the 14th century term to insult Trump, with "dotard" sprinkled across a statement in September which ended: "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged USA dotard with fire".

The president is visiting China, South Korea and other countries in the region in an effort to get them to help put pressure on North Korea to curtail its pursuit of a nuclear weapons arsenal.

"Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face".

He called on nations to stop financing and trading with North Korea. And do not try us.

The harsh words between the leaders have escalated in recent months after North Korea threatened to launch missiles toward the United States territory of Guam.

Trump made the comment on Twitter after accusing the North Korean tyrant of calling him "old".

As the president took to social media, three U.S. aircraft carriers were taking part in a military exercise in the Western Pacific, in a show of strength aimed at North Korea.

The four-day exercise in the western Pacific involves USS Ronald Reagan, USS Nimitz and USS Theodore Roosevelt - as well as seven South Korean vessels, including three destroyers.

That test would be the 15th ballistic missile test since Trump took office, and the first since September.

The secretive kingdom's state-controlled media service told the North Korean people today how their former countrymen south of the Demilitarised Zone are suffering "untold pains under the USA occupation and domination". "The world has been provoked".
