Trump calls for closer Vietnam ties

14 November 2017

DONALD Trump would "lose a war against North Korea" because his troops would be "outnumbered" by Kim Jong-un's 1.2million fighters, it has been claimed.

"Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old, ' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat?'" Trump tweeted Sunday after arriving in Hanoi, Vietnam. All three "reaffirmed their commitment to maintaining maximum pressure on North Korea in an effort to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula", the White House said.

The president appeared to be responding to a statement from North Korea's foreign ministry Saturday, which warned that, "Reckless remarks by an old lunatic like Trump will never scare us or stop our advance".

Che then referred to Trump, 71, as "President Miss Thang" when referencing the president's response to last week's mass shooting in Texas. Trump fired back hours later in a sarcastic tweet going after the dictator's weight and height.

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said that the four-day strike force exercise is "aimed at enhancing deterrence against North Korea's nuclear and missile threats". "But our military is keeping a full readiness posture against the possibility of North Korea's provocations", a South Korean military official said during a briefing on Monday, the Seoul-based Yonhap News Agency reports.

He also tweeted about meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at APEC and how they had "good discussions" on Syria and that he hopes that they can solve the North Korea crisis together. "I don't know if it will but it would be very, very nice".

North Korea is not known to have tested any of its missiles or nuclear devices since September 15, a relative lull after a brisk series of tests earlier this year.
