US President, Donald Trump sarcastically responded to insults issued by North Korea that described the US President as a "destroyer" who "begged for nuclear war" during his tour of Asia.
The North Korean statement also referred to Trump as a "dotard," a word meaning a very old person, and one the reclusive nation has used on him in the past.
In response, Trump said why would Kim Jong‑un insult him by calling him 'old,' when he would never call him 'short and fat?'
Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me "old," when I would NEVER call him "short and fat?" Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 12, 2017
Trump then said that he will try so hard to be his friend ‑ and maybe someday that will happen.
Trump is in Vietnam as part of a nearly two‑week tour of Asia, and North Korea's nuclear weapons program has been a major talking point with his Japanese, South Korean and Chinese counterparts.
