Trump Calls Kim Jong-Un ‘Short And Fat’ In Response To ‘Old’ Barb
The escalating feud between US president Donald Trump and North Korea dictator Kim Jong-Un took a bizarrely childish turn on Saturday with the two leaders calling each other names on Twitter.
In a tweet on Sunday, Trump complained that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un had insulted him by calling him “old” and said he would never call Kim “short and fat”… by calling him “short and fat.”
In one of a series of tweets after attending the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Vietnam, Trump said: “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 has traded insults and threats with Kim in the past amid escalating tensions over Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programs. North Korea conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear bomb test on September 3, prompting another round of UN sanctions.
