Trump trades grade school insults with Kim Jong

Prawn row serves up cocktail of orders for S. Korean fisherman

President Donald Trump is exchanging school yard taunts with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

President Trump said Saturday that he would never call North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "short and fat", after Kim's government slammed Trump as an "old lunatic" following a recent speech in neighboring South Korea.

"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 unusual thing that happens.

Speaking to reporters on Air Force One while making his way to Hanoi on Saturday, Mr Trump said he believed the Russian leader was being honest when he denied meddling. A lot of people stick to paying attention to whatever's going on in their own country, trying not be sucked into what's happening on the other side of the world.

Though an armistice ceased fighting in that conflict, no peace treaty has ever been signed, and North Korea still tensely face off with South Korean and U.S. forces at the demilitarized zone that splits the Korean peninsula at the 38th parallel.

Jouas, formerly deputy commander of US Forces Korea, said the near 30,000-strong US forces stationed in the neighboring South would struggle to counter the North Korean Army, which the country claims nearly 5 million people have volunteered for.

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

The President takes exception to North Korea calling him "old", sarcastically hitting back in a series of tweets.




"I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it", he said.

In the first comments on Mr Trump's visit by a North Korean official, a Pyongyang foreign ministry spokesman said it was a "warmonger's visit for confrontation to rid" North Korea of its self-defensive nuclear deterrence, the state-run KCNA news agency reported.

While North Korea has launched around two dozen missiles this year, including an intercontinental ballistic missile that can strike parts, if not most, of the continental US, and tested a staged thermonuclear weapon with an explosive yield far greater than anything the regime has previously tested, the North has not engaged in major provocations in almost two months.

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

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.

The strike force plans to conduct air defense drills, sea surveillance, defensive air combat training as well as other maneuvers.

Three days after Tillerson said he was "pleased to see that the regime in Pyongyang has certainly demonstrated some level of restraint that we've not seen in the past", North Korea fired three short-range ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan. "The world has been provoked".
