North Korea denounces Trump's Asia tour as a 'warmonger's visit'

14 November 2017

Visiting Asia, the president has tried to bring the world together in pressurising North Korea's nuclear weapons programme, something that's proving somewhat of a tough task.

Earlier in the day, Kim lashed out at Trump in statement and called him a "dotard", meaning very old person.

The exercise is taking place while U.S. President Donald Trump is on an Asian tour and presenting a united front with regional leaders.

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

Lieutenant General Jan-Marc Jouas, the former Deputy Commander of U.S. forces in Korea, said the U.S. would not even be able to build-up their forces before a war took place, in a chilling letter to the Democrats, seen by Newsweek.

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?'". And do not try us.

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. The weapons you're acquiring are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger.

Asked if he could see himself being friends with Kim, Trump said: "That might be a unusual thing to happen but it's a possibility. On the contrary, all this makes us more sure that our choice to promote economic construction at the same time as building up our nuclear force is all the more righteous, and it pushes us to speed up the effort to complete our nuclear force".

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". It could be something that could happen.

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

The harsh response from North Korea also comes during a period of relative quiet by Kim's regime following its most recent nuclear test in September. Glean what you will from this, but no-I don't think nuclear war is coming because of a tweet.
