I would never call Kim Jong Un ‘short and fat’ – Trump. Donald Trump sarcastically responded Sunday morning to insults issued by North Korea that described the US President as a “destroyer” who “begged for nuclear war” during his tour of Asia.
I would never call Kim Jong Un ‘short and fat’ – Trump
The North Korean statement also referred to Trump as a “dotard,” a word meaning a very old person, and one the reclusive nation has used on him in the past.
“Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me ‘old,’ when I would NEVER call him ‘short and fat?’ Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!” Trump tweeted.
Trump is in Vietnam as part of a nearly two-week tour of Asia, and North Korea’s nuclear weapons program has been a major talking point with his Japanese, South Korean and Chinese counterparts.
“The weapons you are acquiring are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger,” Trump said about North Korea during an address at South Korea’s National Assembly in Seoul. “Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face.”
