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

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".

Legionnaires sickens 12 in California, including 9 at Disneyland
The towers were chemically treated to combat the problem, and there is no ongoing threat to guests' health, the Register reports. Disneyland shut down two of their cooling towers after multiple cases of Legionnaires' disease was found in park visitors.

"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".

Three hurt in vehicle attack near Toulouse: French police
The college campus comprises of several postgraduate courses including journalism, computer science, real estate and business. French Police said a man driving a auto outside a high school rammed into three students near Toulouse in southern France.

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".

Rian Johnson to create new 'Star Wars' trilogy
The surprising part is that this story will seemingly, finally deviate from the existing Star Wars storyline as we know it. That should quell at least SOME of the rumors of any connection to any Star Wars story yet out in the wild.

He said he doesn't know if that friendship will develop, but added it would be "very, very nice if it did". This came after the Asian dictator called Trump "old".
