US President Donald Trump has said he would never call Kim Jong-Un "short and fat", after months of trading personal insults and threats of war with the North Korean leader.

"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 tweeted from Hanoi, the latest leg on his marathon tour of Asia.

Earlier this week, North Korea said that “no-one can predict when the lunatic old man of the White House, lost to sense, will start a nuclear war." It was a reference o Trump's earlier name-calling of Kim Jong Un.

Both leaders have engaged in over-the-top rhetoric in recent months as tensions between the two countries increase and North Korea continues expanding its nuclear program.

Trump has frequently called Kim "rocket man."

Kim has called Trump a "mentally deranged U.S. dotard," a “gangster fond of playing with fire," and "a frightened dog."

Trump is currently on a 12-day Asia-Pacific trip to meet regional leaders with a heavy emphasis on developing trade programs and curbing North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.

In Septemmer, the president signed an executive order that placed new travel and economic sanctions on North Korea. Trump has previously said he would "totally destroy" North Korea if it continues to threaten the U.S. or her allies with nuclear tests.
