'I would NEVER' call Rocket Man Kim Jong Un 'short and fat'

'I would NEVER' call Rocket Man Kim Jong Un 'short and fat'”

Trump appears to have had his feelings hurt by a statement issued by the North Korean foreign ministry referring to him as an old lunatic.

Trump fired back hours later.

"Why would Kim Jon-un insult me by calling me "old", when I would never call him 'short and fat?' Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!" wrote the president in a tweet on Sunday.

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

Asked if he could see himself being friends with Kim, Trump said: "That might be a odd thing to happen but it's a possibility". That might be a odd thing that happens. "It is a hell that no person deserves", Trump said. "If that did happen, it would be a good thing for, I can tell you, for North Korea".

Trump and Kim have engaged in name-calling in recent months as tensions between the two countries increase and North Korea continues expanding its nuclear program.

The spectre of Pyongyang's nuclear weapons programme has loomed large over the President's trip, with one of the aims of tour to persuade China to put more pressure on the North.

"Together we have in our power to finally liberate this region and the world from this very serious nuclear menace, but it will require collective action, collective strength and collective devotion to winning the peace", Trump said.

Last month North Korea made threats to reduce the United States to "ashes and darkness" in response to sanctions imposed by the UN.

"Reckless remarks by an old lunatic like Trump will never scare us or stop our advance".

The president renewed his spat with North Korea as three USA aircraft carriers were taking part in a military exercise in the Western Pacific in a show of strength to 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.

This isn't the first time Trump and Kim have traded barbs.

Trump hasn't always been a rhetorical foe of Kim.

"The 28,500 US Armed Forces personnel in South Korea are vastly outnumbered by North Korean forces, as well as ROK (South Korean) forces that will conduct the overwhelming majority of the fighting", he wrote.
