US President Donald Trump "begged for a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula" during his first trip to Asia, North Korea's KCNA state news agency quoted the country's foreign ministry spokesman as saying.
So, as the president finishes the last leg of his Asia trip, he chose to take to Twitter and bash North Korean Kim Jong-un "short and fat". "Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!"
Tillerson said that eventually there would be a day when the US and the North decide it's a good time to have that first conversation that would lead to negotiations.
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.
"Might be a unusual thing to happen but it's certainly a possibility", Trump said during a press conference with Vietnam's president, adding that it would be "very, every nice if it did".
On Aug. 8, Trump threatened the regime with "fire and fury like the world has never seen", leading Kim to say he would consider sending missiles into the waters off the coast of Guam in "mid-August".
Following his "lunatic remarks" made in September, Trump "made his conceived attempt yet again to alienate our people from the government and keep up rivalry between the DPRK and the worldwide society", the spokesman continued.
In a statement lashing out at Trump on Saturday, North Korea also referred to him as a "dotard", a word meaning a very old person, and one the reclusive nation has used on him in the past. "If it did happen, it would be a good thing for North Korea, and a good thing for lots of other places and good for the world".
"Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face".
Speaking later in Vietnam's capital, Hanoi, Trump said "it would be very, very nice" if he and Kim became friends. This isn't the first time North Korea have employed the 14th century term to insult Trump, with "dotard" sprinkled across a statement in September which ended: "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged United States dotard with fire".
This is the first time three carrier strike groups will operate together since 2007 during an exercise off the coast of Guam, according to the Navy.
