Trump on North Korea crisis: I'd never call Kim 'short and fat'

Trump on North Korea crisis: I'd never call Kim 'short and fat'

Trump also warned North Korea not to underestimate the United States in a speech to the South Korean parliament on Wednesday, while offering leader Kim Jong-Un a better future if he gives up his nuclear ambitions.

It's odd, one minute Kim is talking about nuclear war, testing missiles, then he calls Trump "old". "I mean, look at how vain and catty he is?"

Trump has called Kim "rocket man" and Kim has called Trump a "mentally deranged USA dotard", a "gangster fond of playing with fire", and "a frightened dog". "Do not try us". The weapons you're acquiring are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger.

North Korea's foreign ministry said of the comments, "Reckless remarks by an old lunatic like Trump will never scare us or stop our advance".

At a summit in Seoul Tuesday, Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-In agreed to increase the deployment of United States military assets around the Korean peninsula to step up pressure on the North.

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

Kim's regime has continued to carry out nuclear and ballistic missile tests despite widespread global condemnation and a series of crippling sanctions aimed at strangling the state's cash sources.

Trump's visit to Beijing last week Xi reiterated that China would strive for the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula but offered no hint it would change tack on North Korea, with which it fought side by side in the 1950-53 Korean war against USA -led forces.

"That might be a unusual thing to happen but it's a possibility", he said.

At a news conference in Vietnam on Sunday after his tweets, Trump said it was possible he could be friends with Kim one day and that it would be "very, very nice" but he was not sure that it would happen.

He also tweeted about meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at APEC and how they had "good discussions" on Syria and that he hopes that they can solve the North Korea crisis together. It could be something that could happen.

Is this politics? I don't even know anymore, maybe it is.

"The exercise is aimed at enhancing deterrence against North Korea's nuclear and missile threats and showing off preparedness to fend off any provocative acts by the North", a ministry spokesman said.

In recent months, North Korea has tested intercontinental ballistic missiles that could reach the U.S. mainland with further development and has conducted its most powerful nuclear test.

We'll see what happens now.
