'Short and fat': Trump's North Korea bluster during Asia trip

It's odd, one minute Kim is talking about nuclear war, testing missiles, then he calls Trump "old". "When I would NEVER call him "short and fat?"

US President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter ahead of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Vietnam to lambast North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. All three "reaffirmed their commitment to maintaining maximum pressure on North Korea in an effort to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula", the White House said.

"Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me "old", when I would NEVER call him "short and fat?"

Trump goes on to say sarcastically, "Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!"

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 statement was issued in response to a speech delivered by Trump in South Korea's National Assembly on Tuesday, where he stressed that the U.S. should not be underestimated, and that North Korea's new weapons might be putting the regime in more, rather than less danger. And do not try us.

And in a warning directed at young dictator Kim, he said: "The weapons you are acquiring are not making you safer".

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

"Might be a odd thing to happen but it's certainly a possibility", Trump said during a press conference with Vietnam's president, adding that it would be "very, every nice if it did".

"That might be a odd thing to happen but it's a possibility", he said. Instead, he said, "It makes sense for North Korea to come to the table and make a deal that is good for the people of North Korea and for the world". It could be something that could happen.

Tensions have been running high since North Korea test-fired two intercontinental ballistic missiles in July, conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3 and flew ballistic missiles over Japan on August 29 and September 15. North Korea conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear bomb test on September 3, prompting another round of United Nations sanctions. Glean what you will from this, but no-I don't think nuclear war is coming because of a tweet.
