Trump is now in Vietnam attending the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, but he took the time to tweet: "Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old, ' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat?'".

"Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me "old", when I would NEVER call him "short and fat?"

Nuclear-armed North Korea regularly denounces such military drills as rehearsals for invasion and sometimes conducts its own military manoeuvres or missile tests in response.

The South Morning China Post quoted military officials describing this as a clear warning to North Korea, which involve three USA aircraft carriers.

US President Donald Trump talks to the media before he and first lady Melania Trump depart on Marine One on November 3, 2017 in Washington, DC.

"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. "Do not try us". This came after the Asian dictator called Trump "old".

Trump has been working to rally global pressure against North Korea's nuclear weapons program on the trip to Asia.

Trump and Kim have engaged in name-calling in recent months as tensions between the two countries increase and North Korea continues expanding its nuclear program. "On the contrary, all this makes us more sure that our choice to promote economic construction at the same time as building-up on our nuclear force is all more righteous, and it pushes us to speed up the effort to complete our nuclear force".

Trump followed up his freaky tweet by telling reporters that it would be a "good thing" for him and dictator to become friends.

Addressing a press conference later, Trump declared his belief that it was possible for the two leaders to be "friends". "I don't know if it will but it would be very, very nice".

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

Tensions have been running high since North Korea test-fired two intercontinental ballistic missiles in July, conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3 and flew ballistic missiles over Japan on August 29 and September 15.
