Trump trades 'short and fat' barb with N Korea's Kim

The post came in response to the country's foreign ministry calling Trump "an old lunatic" over his speech in South Korea.

President Trump responded to the latest round of name-calling from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Saturday, saying "I try so hard to be his friend" and would "never call him "short and fat".

Trump has at times expressed impatience with that effort, but this week, he seemed to back away from "fire and fury", instead expressing hope for diplomacy.

Asked if he could see himself being friends with Kim, Trump said: "That might be a odd thing to happen but it's a possibility".

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

After North Korea's Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho addressed the UN General Assembly in September Trump tweeted: "Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at UN. Do not try us".

Asked about the possibility of becoming friends with the North Korean leader during a Sunday joint news conference in Vietnam, Trump did not rule it out. "If it did happen, it would be a good thing for North Korea, and a good thing for lots of other places and good for the world".

Adding insult to injury, the officials then reviewed the play and overturned the touchdown, ruling Muller didn't make the catch. Head coach John Fox announced after the game that Miller had a dislocated knee and is now at the hospital.

The comments are likely to go down extremely badly in Pyongyang, with North Korea extremely sensitive to any remarks - even if not meant to be taken seriously - that it sees as disrespectful to its rulers.

Shortly after that speech, North Korean officials told CNN, "We don't care about what that mad dog may utter", referring to Trump. World War III will be caused by someone insinuating Donald Trump wears a wig.

The harsh words between the leaders have escalated in recent months after North Korea threatened to launch missiles toward the USA territory of Guam.

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.

In September Kim described Trump as a "mentally deranged USA dotard" whom he would tame with fire.

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

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 U.S. occupation and domination".
