"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.
As part of his continuing tour of Asia, Trump met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull Monday in Manila to discuss the situation in North Korea. The statement also referred to Trump as a "dotard", an insulting term for old people who are going senile.
Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me "old", when I would NEVER call him "short and fat?"
In a response to North Korea calling Trump's speech in South Korea "reckless remarks by an old lunatic", 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?'" And do not try us.
North Korea warned Monday that the unprecedented deployment of three US aircraft carrier groups "taking up a strike posture" around the Korean peninsula is making it impossible to predict when nuclear war will break out. The weapons you're acquiring are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger.
Butch Jones out as Tennessee's football coach
Associate head coach Brady Hoke , who coaches the defensive line, has been named as interim head coach and will finish the season. This is Jones' fifth season on the job and shaping up to be his worst since he went 5-7 upon taking over in 2013.
Trump and Kim have engaged in name-calling in recent months as tensions between the two countries increase and North Korea continues expanding its nuclear program.
He also referenced Trump's September speech to the UN General Assembly in which the president said that if the U.S.is "forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea". "But our military is keeping a full readiness posture against the possibility of North Korea's provocations", a South Korean military official said during a briefing on Monday, the Seoul-based Yonhap News Agency reports. It could be something that could happen.
He didn't elaborate on what "the last" might be, but North Korea has launched ballistic missiles that have the potential to strike the US mainland, and it recently conducted its largest-ever underground nuclear explosion.
Is this politics? I don't even know anymore, maybe it is. Glean what you will from this, but no-I don't think nuclear war is coming because of a tweet.
