Trump sarcastically responds to Kim Jong Un insults

Separate ways To a common meeting ground

Separate ways To a common meeting ground

During the flight to Hanoi late Saturday, the president said Putin had again denied to him allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election.

At a news conference in Vietnam on Sunday after his tweets, Trump said it was possible he could be friends with Kim one day and that it would be "very, very nice" but he was not sure that it would happen.

Following his stop in South Korea, the President travelled on to China - North Korea's biggest ally and trading partner. "But it is certainly a possibility", Trump said.

He said the USA wouldn't threaten Kim if he gave up his nuclear weapons.

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. The statement was issued in response to a speech delivered by Trump in South Korea's National Assembly on Tuesday, where he stressed that the USA should not be underestimated, and that North Korea's new weapons might be putting the regime in more, rather than less danger.

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 US -led forces.

"That might be a odd thing to happen but it's a possibility", he said.

Sixteen killed after boat capsizes in Vijayawada
The tourism department of Andhra Pradesh had given permission for private agencies to operate boats to Bhavani Island regularly. Alerted government immediately pressed disaster management forces in to service to rescue people struck in the water.

North Korean officials described Trump's trip as "nothing but a business trip by a warmonger to enrich the monopolies of the USA defense industry".

"They [North Korea] likely understand that - unlike visits of high-level officials - to do an ICBM while the president is in the region is a bigger gamble", said Jenny Town, managing editor of 38 North, a website devoted to analysis on North Korea.

Kim responded to those jabs with an insult of his own, saying in a statement aimed at Trump that "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged United States dotard with fire".

In the first of three successive tweets Sunday morning, Trump hit back at his critics.

"I think we have to be a little patient here for at least a few months to see what more we and others can do, including China", McMaster said.

"And this artificial Democratic hit job gets in the way", Mr Trump said.
