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

First Lady Melania Trump visited children at Kyobashi Tsukiji Elementary School in Tokyo where she joined students in a calligraphy class N. Korea blasts Trump's 'warmonger' Asia tour

Trump is now in Vietnam attending the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, but he took the time to tweet: "Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old, ' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat?'".

"Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old, ' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat?'" Trump tweeted Sunday after arriving in Hanoi, Vietnam.

"Might be a unusual 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".

President Trump and the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong un, have traded insults publicly, with the latest juvenile interaction suggesting that a mutually acceptable solution to North Korea's nuclear weapons programme is still some way off.

Che then referred to Trump, 71, as "President Miss Thang" when referencing the president's response to last week's mass shooting in Texas.

"A lot of times, Donald Trump goes way over the line with his tweets, but this time - that was pretty damn amusing", said Che.

Confused as to how the two of them weren't friends (?) he continued: "Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!"

"I say to the North: Do not underestimate us, and do not try us", he said. "Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face".

North Korea has dominated Mr Trump's Asia trip so far to Japan, South Korea, China and Vietnam.

He also referenced Trump's September speech to the UN General Assembly in which the president said that if the U.S.is "forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea".

"That might be a unusual thing to happen but it's a possibility", he said. "But it would also be good for lots of other places, and it would be good for the world".

He said he doesn't know if that friendship will develop, but added it would be "very, very nice if it did".

He didn't elaborate on what "the last" might be, but North Korea has launched ballistic missiles that have the potential to strike the US mainland, and it recently conducted its largest-ever underground nuclear explosion.
