The morning tweetstorm came as Trump prepared for bilateral meetings with Vietnamese leaders, including a scheduled news conference where he could face more questions about the topics he addressed on Twitter.

North Korea yesterday slammed US President Donald Trump's "warmonger" Asia tour, saying it would only accelerate Pyongyang's push for a full-fledged nuclear deterrent.

Asked if he could see himself being friends with Kim, Trump said: "That might be a unusual thing to happen but it's a possibility". That might be a unusual thing that happens.

Jouas, formerly deputy commander of US Forces Korea, said the near 30,000-strong US forces stationed in the neighboring South would struggle to counter the North Korean Army, which the country claims nearly 5 million people have volunteered for.

Speaking to reporters on Air Force One while making his way to Hanoi on Saturday, Mr Trump said he believed the Russian leader was being honest when he denied meddling. "If that did happen, it would be a good thing for, I can tell you, for North Korea. But it would also be good for lots of other places, and it would be good for the world".

Trump has been working to rally global pressure against North Korea's nuclear weapons program on a trip to Asia. "I don't know if it will but it would be very, very nice", he added.

The Korean Central News Agency referred to Trump on Saturday as a "destroyer" and a "dotard" who "begged for nuclear war".

It's a continuation in the ongoing war of words, even as the regime's missile test have noticeably paused - a surprising development given that North Korea has often followed these verbal spars with threats and missile tests.

Also on the trip, Mr Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin several times on the margins of a summit in Vietnam.

The US on Saturday began a three-carrier strike force exercise in the Western Pacific.

Three days after Tillerson said he was "pleased to see that the regime in Pyongyang has certainly demonstrated some level of restraint that we've not seen in the past", North Korea fired three short-range ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan.
