Trump claimed credit Wednesday for the inter-Korean dialogue, saying North Korea was feeling the pressure of a USA -led campaign of sanctions over its nuclear weapons and missile development.

He also declared that North Korea was "a responsible nuclear nation that loves peace" and that "the United States can not wage a war" against it. Since February, Pyongyang has fired off 23 missiles.

Since Kim inherited power in 2011, North Korea has made rapid progress towards its goal of developing a missile that can deliver an atomic warhead to the United States, which significantly strengthens its negotiating position.

While Trump has referred to Jong-un as "rocket man", his rival had previously called him a "mentally deranged dotard".

Trump has in the past called Kim "short and fat" and "a bad dude".

"Not helpful enough, but they have been very helpful. I'm a very flexible person". With that being said, it's not enough.

Two days later, Paul issued a statement on Twitter , saying that he would be stepping away from the vlogging process to regroup. The action by YouTube whose parent company is Google serves to show how the company is dealing with controversial content.


"The target of all our nuclear and hydrogen bombs and ICBMs and all other sophisticated weapons is the USA", the North's chief delegate Ri Son-gwon said. "China's been helping us a lot, so you can veer a little bit differently, but for the most part everything I have said I have done", he said in response to a question on his electoral promise of being tough on China.

Trump addressed the fiery and furious tone of his tweets that were aimed at North Korea during the first year of his administration, and said that it was how he created friendlier ties with people. "That should have been a problem that was solved by Obama, or Bush, or Clinton or anybody, because the longer it went, the worse, the more hard the problem got", he said.

The images were taken in December, shortly before North Korean leader Kim Jong-un gave a New Year speech warning US President Donald Trump of a "nuclear button" on his desk, while also offering to hold talks with Seoul. "I think you people are surprised".

CNN quoted Trump as saying: "I don't want to comment on it".

"I don't want to comment on it. But I just don't-", Trump responded.

Trump told the newspaper a decision by the United States and South Korea to postpone military exercises until after next month's Winter Olympics in South Korea "sends a good message to North Korea".
