President Donald Trump fired back at North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Twitter Sunday by sarcastically saying that he would never call him “short and fat” after the dictator said that Trump was an “old” person.
Trump sent out the tweet after he attended the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Vietnam.
Earlier in the day, Kim lashed out at Trump in statement and called him a “dotard,” meaning very old person. Trump fired back hours later in a sarcastic tweet going after the dictator’s weight and height.
Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me "old," when I would NEVER call him "short and fat?" Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!
