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

13 November 2017

In September Kim described Trump as a mentally deranged U.S. dotard - a word used to refer to a weak and senile old person - whom he would tame with fire.

That makes sense, but when world leaders such as former businessman Donald Trump and dictator Kim Jong-un are throwing school yard insults at each other, it's hard not to stick your nose in. Trump, 71, sarcastically responded that he hopes one day to be friends with Kim, who oversees a developing nuclear weapons and ballistic missile arsenal.

The letter comes just days after thousands of South Koreans flocked to the streets of Seoul to demand peace with North Korea and protest the visit by US President Donald Trump, who previously promised to unleash "fire and fury" against the "rocket man", Kim Jong-un.

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

Kim's regime has continued to carry out nuclear and ballistic missile tests despite widespread worldwide condemnation and a series of crippling sanctions aimed at strangling the state's cash sources.

North Korea tested its first missile just 22 days after Trump was inaugurated on January 20.

As Trump has made his way through South Korea, Japan and China this week - touting the strength of the USA alliance and commanding North Korea to "not try us" - the regime has remained quiet.

Asked at a news conference in Vietnam if he could see himself being friends with Kim, the Trump replied: "That might be a odd thing to happen, but it's a possibility". "If that did happen, it would be a good thing for, I can tell you, for North Korea".

While North Korea has launched around two dozen missiles this year, including an intercontinental ballistic missile that can strike parts, if not most, of the continental USA, and tested a staged thermonuclear weapon with an explosive yield far greater than anything the regime has previously tested, the North has not engaged in major provocations in almost two months.

"I think we have to be a little patient here for at least a few months to see what more we and others can do, including China", McMaster said.

Lieutenant General Jan-Marc Jouas said the U.S. could be swarmed by North Korean troops in a number of shocking documents leaked to Congress.

The Asian giant is keeping the economically unstable nation financially afloat, and Trump has claimed China "can fix this problem easily - and quickly" by using its influence over the hermit state.
