In the first comments on Mr Trump's visit by a North Korean official, a Pyongyang foreign ministry spokesman said it was a "warmonger's visit for confrontation to rid" North Korea of its self-defensive nuclear deterrence, the state-run KCNA news agency reported.

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

Donald Trump has finally arrived at the last stop on his 12-day Asia visit, so of course North Korea made a decision to fuck with him a little bit.

Earlier in the day, Kim lashed out at Trump in statement and called him a "dotard", meaning very old person.

The letter comes just days after thousands of South Koreans flocked to the streets of Seoul to demand peace with North Korea and protest the visit by US President Donald Trump, who previously promised to unleash "fire and fury" against the "rocket man", Kim Jong-un.

"Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old, '" tweeted the president. Trump fired back hours later in a sarcastic tweet going after the dictator's weight and height.

Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me "old", when I would NEVER call him "short and fat?" And do not try us.

As Trump has made his way through South Korea, Japan and China this week - touting the strength of the USA alliance and commanding North Korea to "not try us" - the regime has remained quiet. The weapons you're acquiring are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger.

"I really believe that it makes sense for North Korea to come to the table and to make a deal", Trump said in a press conference with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

"Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face". As North Korea has been an important focal point for this trip, the rogue regime has been spewing vitriol on the regular.

"If it did happen it could be a good thing I can tell you for North Korea, but it could also be good for a lot of other places and be good for the rest the world".

"I think we have to be a little patient here for at least a few months to see what more we and others can do, including China", McMaster said.
