Trump says he will never call N Korea leader 'short and fat'

This isn't the first time North Korea have employed the 14th century term to insult Trump, with "dotard" sprinkled across a statement in September which ended: "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged USA dotard with fire".

Asked about the possibility of becoming friends with the North Korean leader during a Sunday joint news conference in Vietnam, Trump did not rule it out.

In a series of tweets he also said Chinese President Xi Jinping was "upping sanctions" on North Korea in response to its nuclear and missile programs and that Xi wants Pyongyang to "denuclearize".

"That might be a unusual thing to happen but it's a possibility", he said. "It is a hell that no person deserves", Trump said. "If that did happen, it would be a good thing for, I can tell you, for North Korea".

Mr Trump also urged other nations to join forces to combat the growing threat posed by Pyongyang.

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

Jouas, formerly deputy commander of US Forces Korea, said the near 30,000-strong US forces stationed in the neighboring South would struggle to counter the North Korean Army, which the country claims nearly 5 million people have volunteered for.

For the last months, the two leaders have been on two ends of a bitter war of words prompted in part by Pyongyang refusal to cease ballistic missile tests and the development of nuclear capabilities.

In a fresh show of force, three United States aircraft carriers, accompanied by South Korean warships, launched a joint naval drill yesterday.

This isn't the first time Trump and Kim have traded barbs.

In a stunning admission, Lt Gen Jouas said the USA could face problems in getting reinforcements or new supplies to the Korean Peninsula, adding troops "may well find their bases subject to attack by conventional or chemical weapons, which will further delay their entry into the war".

He said he asked the Russian leader if he interfered in the 2016 U.S. election and received assurances from Mr Putin that he "absolutely did not meddle".

Mr Trump called the claim an "artificial barrier" put up by Democrats and once again cast doubt on the conclusion from his own intelligence agencies that Russian Federation tried to interfere in the presidential poll to ensure Hillary Clinton was defeated.
