N. Korea blasts Trump's 'warmonger' Asia tour

Separate ways To a common meeting ground

One of Trump's tweets read: "Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old, ' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat?' Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!"

Trump has traded insults and threats with Kim in the past amid escalating tension over Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs as North Korea races toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of reaching the United States - something Trump has vowed to prevent. "I mean, look at how vain and catty he is?"

Earlier in the day, Kim lashed out at Trump in statement and called him a "dotard", meaning very old person. 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 United States should not be underestimated, and that North Korea's new weapons might be putting the regime in more, rather than less danger.

"I say to the North: Do not underestimate us, and do not try us", he said.

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

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".

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




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

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

Nuclear-armed North Korea regularly denounces such military drills as rehearsals for invasion and sometimes conducts its own military manoeuvres or missile tests in response.

On Saturday Night Live, "Weekend Update" host Michael Che couldn't help but tackle the most-talked-about tweet of the night.

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. "I don't know if it will but it would be very, very nice".

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.
