President Trump Strikes Back at 'Short and Fat' Kim Jong Un

Ministerial Meeting ahead of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit leaders meetings in Danang Vietnam

In this undated photo distributed on September 16, 2017, by the North Korean government, leader Kim Jong Un, center, celebrates what was said to be the test launch of an intermediate range Hwasong-12 missile at an undisclosed location in North Korea.

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.

He said it would be a "good thing" for North Korea and the world if he and Kim could become friends, saying it "might be a unusual thing to happen but it's certainly a possibility".

Earlier this week the U.S. president said: "It makes sense for North Korea to come to the table and make a deal that is good for their people and for the world".

Hope Solo accuses ex-FIFA president Sepp Blatter of sexual assault
Ex-FIFA president Sepp Blatter has denied Hope Solo's accusations. "I was in shock and completely thrown off". She was presenting with the former head of the soccer organization, Sepp Blatter , who she said grabbed her.

"Strange things happen in life". A lot of people stick to paying attention to whatever's going on in their own country, trying not be sucked into what's happening on the other side of the world.

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

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.

It's odd, one minute Kim is talking about nuclear war, testing missiles, then he calls Trump "old".

Morocco vs. Ivory Coast: Who will go to Russian Federation ?
Meanwhile, in Group A, Tunisia played out a tense goalless draw with Libya to edge Congo DR to top spot by just one point. Morocco captain Medhi Benatia was on target in a 2-0 over Ivory Coast to book their spot in Russian Federation .

Trump has traded insults and threats with Kim in the past amid escalating tension over Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs as North Korea races toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of reaching the United States -something Trump has vowed to prevent.

The president renewed his spat with North Korea as three US aircraft carriers were taking part in a military exercise in the Western Pacific in a show of strength to North Korea.

Trump attempted a symbolic stare-down of Kim this week at the heavily fortified border that separates North and South Korea, but heavy fog forced the cancellation of his plans.

The secretive kingdom's state-controlled media service told the North Korean people today how their former countrymen south of the Demilitarised Zone are suffering "untold pains under the U.S. occupation and domination".

Twitter pauses verifications after Charlottesville rally organizer gets blue check
Twitter removed the blue check-mark from white-nationalist Milo Yiannopoulos before banning him from the platform previous year . Twitter says it verifies accounts of "public interests", which typically includes journalists, public figures and celebrities.
