Trump 'begged for nuclear war' during his 'warmongering' visit to Asia - Pyongyang

Trump 'begged for nuclear war' during his 'warmongering' visit to Asia - Pyongyang

He added that Trump showed his "true nature as destroyer of the world peace and stability" on his "warmongering" visit.

The paper denounced the US president's Asia trip as "a warmonger's trip for confrontation with the North", "an old miser's trip to sell arms", and "a chief terrorist's trip for self-destruction".

While in South Korea, Trump had warned the North not to underestimate the USA and has called on nations to stop financing and trading with the regime.

North Korea has launched a stinging attack on US President Donald Trump following his visit to South Korea.

Trump continued his tough talk against Pyongyang on Friday in a speech to business leaders at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Danang, Vietnam, saying that the region's future "must not be held hostage to a dictator's twisted fantasies of violent conquest and nuclear blackmail", referring to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

In response to that Trump tweeted from Hanoi on Sunday morning: "'Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old, ' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat?"

It marks the first time that three US aircraft carriers have joined together at close range for a joint exercise with South Korea, officials said.

A total of seven South Korean navy vessels, including Aegis-equipped warships, will participate in the drill, the statement said, to accompany 14 US naval warships.

The U.S. Navy's previous training operation involving three carriers was in the vicinity of Guam in the Western Pacific in 2007 during the Valiant Shield exercise.

The US has been sending its strategic assets, also including long-range bombers, to the region more frequently for patrols or drills amid accelerating North Korean efforts to expand its nuclear weapons program.

North Korea jolted major world leaders when it carried out the strongest of its six-ever nuclear tests in early September, claiming to have used a hydrogen bomb.

It has repeatedly threatened to launch ballistic missiles into the waters around the US territory of Guam.
