North Korea denounces Trump's Asia tour as a 'warmonger's visit'

Abe even received a customized piece of Trump campaign merchandise to commemorate the US-Japan alliance. The hats say

While months-long winter drills are routine for the North, authorities in the South said they were on high alert for any possible changes.

Asked if he could see himself being friends with Kim, Trump said: "That might be a unusual thing to happen but it's a possibility". "But our military is keeping a full readiness posture against the possibility of North Korea's provocations".

"Currently, the North Korean troops are conducting ordinary field exercises", a South Korean military official said in a briefing, according to Yonhap.

South Korea and the United States were also conducting joint military drills in the East Sea utilizing three US aircraft carriers.

Only hours ahead of Saturday's (Nov. 11) show, President Donald Trump took aim at Kim Jong Un in a tweet, saying he would never call the North Korean dictator "short and fat".

"We are enthusiastic about economic reforms that promote economic prosperity for all Vietnamese citizens as we look to your growing middle class as a key market for American goods and services", said Trump, adding that he would welcome Vietnam's elimination of trade barriers. "This would be a fatal miscalculation". On the other hand Trump expressed his wish to befriend with North Korean leader.

North Korea has dominated Mr Trump's Asia trip so far to Japan, South Korea, China and Vietnam.

A spokesman for North Korea's foreign ministry published a lengthy and incendiary commentary, condemning Trump for a "warmonger's visit" with the goal of ending the nation's effort to create a "self-defensive" nuclear weapons program.

North Korean military personnel are reportedly preparing for their winter training exercises as three U.S. aircraft carriers lurk near the Korean Peninsula in an unprecedented show of force by Washington's navy.

The drills occurred as President Donald Trump wrapped up a 12-day trip across Asia, in which the North Korean threat was at the top of his agenda.
