'I would NEVER' call Rocket Man Kim Jong Un 'short and fat'

Trump is in Vietnam as part of a almost two-week tour of Asia, and North Korea's nuclear weapons program has been a major talking point with his Japanese, South Korean and Chinese counterparts.

Asked if he could see himself being friends with Kim, Trump said: "That might be a odd thing to happen but it's a possibility".

President Donald Trump is exchanging school yard taunts with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

Kim's regime has continued to carry out nuclear and ballistic missile tests despite widespread global condemnation and a series of crippling sanctions aimed at strangling the state's cash sources.

Aggressive rhetoric from North Korea is nothing new, and on Saturday the secretive nation described Trump as a "destroyer" who "begged for nuclear war" as the President continued his tour of Asia.

At a news conference in Vietnam on Sunday after his tweets, Trump said it was possible he could be friends with Kim one day and that it would be "very, very nice" but he was not sure that it would happen.

"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 say to the North: Do not underestimate us, and do not try us", he said.

"They [North Korea] likely understand that - unlike visits of high-level officials - to do an ICBM while the president is in the region is a bigger gamble", said Jenny Town, managing editor of 38 North, a website devoted to analysis on North Korea.

It comes on the same day Rodong Sinmun, the regime-run newspaper, warned the North would "surely win in the showdown" with the US and South Korea.

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

This isn't the first time Trump and Kim have traded barbs.

Town told ABC News that if Pyongyang conducted a test during or following Trump's trip, it would likely be with a Hwasong-14, what the US refers to as the KN-20 - a two-stage intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

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.
