N. Korea blasts Trump's 'warmonger' Asia tour

N. Korea blasts Trump's 'warmonger' Asia tour

How do we negotiate?

Trump made the comment on Twitter after accusing the North Korean tyrant of calling him "old".

His comments came after Trump threatened in his maiden United Nations address to totally destroy the country of 26 million people if the U.S. were threatened. I have never been more certain of anything. "Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!"

Trump tweeted from Hanoi, the latest leg on his marathon tour of Asia.

It comes on the same day Rodong Sinmun, the regime-run newspaper, warned the North would "surely win in the showdown" with the US and South Korea. "Do not try us". The weapons you're acquiring are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger.

In his tour of Asia, Trump has warned North Korea not to stretch USA patience, but also suggested the possibility of a diplomatic solution to the crisis. "On the contrary, all this makes us more sure that our choice to promote economic construction at the same time as building up our nuclear force is all the more righteous, and it pushes us to speed up the effort to complete our nuclear force".

The morning tweetstorm came as Trump prepared for bilateral meetings with Vietnamese leaders, including a scheduled news conference where he could face more questions about the topics he addressed on Twitter.

"That might be a odd thing to happen but it's a possibility", he said. "If that did happen, it would be a good thing for, I can tell you, for North Korea". It could be something that could happen.

"Together we have in our power to finally liberate this region and the world from this very serious nuclear menace, but it will require collective action, collective strength and collective devotion to winning the peace", Trump said.

The US think-tank said: "Although Pyongyang is outspent by its neighbours in dollar-to-dollar comparisons and defence experts say it operates with raging equipment and technology, the regime's forward-deployed military position and missiles aimed at Seoul ensure that Pyongyang's conventional capabilities remain a constant threat to its southern neighbour".

North Korea is not known to have tested any of its missiles or nuclear devices since September 15, after a brisk series of tests earlier this year. "I think we have to give it a couple of months, a few months, and then see what adjustments we might need to make".
