North Korea yesterday slammed US President Donald Trump's "warmonger" Asia tour, saying it would only accelerate Pyongyang's push for a full-fledged nuclear deterrent.
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?'".
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.
The United States has been sending its strategic assets, also including long-range bombers, to the region more frequently for patrols or drills amid accelerating North Korean efforts to expand its nuclear weapons program. "Do not try us".

South Korea and the United States will conduct a massive joint naval exercise involving three USA aircraft carriers off the eastern coast Saturday in an unprecedented show of force aimed at deterring North Korea.
"Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face".
Nuclear-armed North Korea regularly denounces such military drills as rehearsals for invasion and sometimes conducts its own military manoeuvres or missile tests in response.

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 USA -led forces.
Trump signed an executive order in September slapping new travel and economic sanctions on North Korea, as the administration seeks to pressure Kim Jong Un in a showdown over the North Korean leader's nuclear program.
"That might be a odd thing to happen but it's a possibility", he said.
He said he doesn't know if that friendship will develop, but added it would be "very, very nice if it did".
