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

As part of his continuing tour of Asia, Trump met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull Monday in Manila to discuss the situation in North Korea.

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

The president appeared to be responding to a statement from North Korea's foreign ministry Saturday, which warned that, "Reckless remarks by an old lunatic like Trump will never scare us or stop our advance".

President Donald Trump, meanwhile, delivered a message to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a speech last week before the South Korean National Assembly. And do not try us.

"The strike force plans to conduct air defense drills, sea surveillance, replenishments at sea, defensive air combat training, close-in coordinated maneuvers, and other training", said a statement from the Navy's 7th Fleet, which is responsible for monitoring the Pacific including North Korea. The weapons you're acquiring are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger.

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

The incident reportedly occurred in the men's department of Macy's shortly after 6.45pm local time in Bloomington , Minnesota . Some shoppers tweeted about the incident, saying they hid underneath clothing racks and other places. "He got me!'.

The ministry was reacting to Trump's speech in South Korea last week, in which the president warned North Korea not to test the resolve of the USA and its allies.

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.

This isn't the first time Trump and Kim have traded barbs.

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. Glean what you will from this, but no-I don't think nuclear war is coming because of a tweet.
