Trump sarcastically responds to Kim Jong Un insults

A combination photo shows President Donald Trump (L) in New York, September 21, 2017 and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in an undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) in Pyongyang, September 4, 2017.

Trump's visit to Beijing last week Xi reiterated that China would strive for the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula but offered no hint it would change tack on North Korea, with which it fought side by side in the 1950-53 Korean war against US -led forces.

In a response to North Korea calling Trump's speech in South Korea "reckless remarks by an old lunatic", Trump tweeted from Hanoi on Sunday morning: "Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old, ' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat?'" Trump tweeted Saturday night.

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

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

The morning tweetstorm came as Trump prepared for bilateral meetings with Vietnamese leaders, including a scheduled news conference where he could face more questions about the topics he addressed on Twitter. "If that did happen, it would be a good thing for, I can tell you, for North Korea".

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

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.

Also on the trip, Mr Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin several times on the margins of a summit in Vietnam.

Three days after Tillerson said he was "pleased to see that the regime in Pyongyang has certainly demonstrated some level of restraint that we've not seen in the past", North Korea fired three short-range ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan.

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.
