President Trump Strikes Back at 'Short and Fat' Kim Jong Un

On Saturday Night Live, "Weekend Update" host Michael Che couldn't help but tackle the most-talked-about tweet of the night.

The North Korean foreign ministry reportedly called Trump's Asia trip a "a warmonger's trip for confrontation with our country".

President Donald Trump on Sunday ridiculed North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un as "short and fat", and he lashed out at critics of his relationship with Russia's leader, saying they are "haters and fools" who don't understand the merits of a good relationship with Moscow.

"Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face".

Asked at news conference with Vietnam's president later Sunday if he could become friends with the North Korean leader, Trump replied it "might be a unusual thing to happen but it's certainly a possibility".

"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.

The President takes exception to North Korea calling him "old", sarcastically hitting back in a series of tweets.

Shortly after that speech, North Korean officials told CNN, "We don't care about what that mad dog may utter", referring to Trump.

President Donald Trump issued a surprisingly insulting tweet Saturday directed at North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Trump has traded insults and threats with Kim in the past amid escalating tension over Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs as North Korea races toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of reaching the United States -something Trump has vowed to prevent.

Is this politics? I don't even know anymore, maybe it is.

Also on the trip, Mr Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin several times on the margins of a summit in Vietnam.

The four-day exercise in the western Pacific involves USS Ronald Reagan, USS Nimitz and USS Theodore Roosevelt - as well as seven South Korean vessels, including three destroyers.

Trump continued to push his harsh rhetoric for North Korea on Sunday, telling reporters that "the world has been provoked" by the rogue nation.

Three days after Tillerson said he was "pleased to see that the regime in Pyongyang has certainly demonstrated some level of restraint that we've not seen in the past", North Korea fired three short-range ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan. "We have been provoked".
