HANOI, Vietnam (AP) – President Donald Trump is exchanging school yard taunts with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un.
Trump says in a tweet from Vietnam: “Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me “old,” when I would NEVER call him “short and fat?””
Trump goes on to say sarcastically, “Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend” and says that, “maybe someday that will happen!”
Trump has been working to rally global pressure against North Korea’s nuclear weapons program on a trip to Asia. That includes a stern speech delivered in South Korea.
Kim’s government responded to that speech by calling Trump an “old lunatic.”
