Trump taunts Kim: I'd never call you short and fat

A particularly stern speech from Mr Trump in South Korea prompted Kim's government to brand him an "old lunatic" - the latest broadside in a long-running war of words between the two leaders.

Trump followed up his freakish tweet by telling reporters that it would be a "good thing" for him and dictator to become friends.

President Donald Trump fired back at North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Twitter Sunday by sarcastically saying that he would never call him "short and fat" after the dictator said that Trump was an "old" person.

"Odd things happen in life", Trump said. That might be a odd thing that happens.

Mr Turnbull said he would be working closely with Indonesian president Joko Widodo, President Trump and President Xi to combat extremism in the region. "If that did happen, it would be a good thing for, I can tell you, for North Korea".

North Korea, a country in a "time warp" that feeds paranoia at home with propaganda about a hostile world, could secure its future by laying the groundwork for talks on its nuclear weapons program, according to South Korea's foreign minister. Said he wants them to denuclearize.

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

Now retired, Lt. Gen. Jan-Marc Jouas gave his views on a possible conflict with North Korea in a letter to Representatives Ted Lieu (D-CA), Ruben Gallego (D-Arizona), and Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-Illinois) earlier this week.

During the very same day Trump said he was prepared to mediate between claimants to the South China Sea, which include Vietnam and China.

Mr Trump called the claim an "artificial barrier" put up by Democrats and once again cast doubt on the conclusion from his own intelligence agencies that Russian Federation tried to interfere in the presidential poll to ensure Hillary Clinton was defeated.

"Trump, during his visit, laid bare his true nature as destroyer of the world peace and stability and begged for a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula", a spokesperson for the DPRK Foreign Ministry said Saturday. "The reckless remarks by a dotard like Trump can never frighten us or put a stop to our advance".

Throughout his trip, Trump has denounced the North Korean regime's nuclear adventurism, brutal dictatorship and human rights abuses.

The US on Saturday began a three-carrier strike force exercise in the Western Pacific.

The Trump administration has singled out Vietnam as one of many countries that has a yawning trade deficit with the US. "We have been provoked".
