North Korea denounces Trump's Asia tour as a 'warmonger's visit'

It referred to Trump as dotard, a word the reclusive nation has used on him in the past.

The expert said they do not have a specific policy of pre-emptive strikes prior to launch and if the U.S. were to launch a missile, North Korea could claim they have been attacked.

North Korean officials described Trump's trip as "nothing but a business trip by a warmonger to enrich the monopolies of the USA defense industry".

At a summit in Seoul Tuesday, Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-In agreed to increase the deployment of U.S. military assets around the Korean peninsula to step up pressure on the North. He added that Trump showed his "true nature as destroyer of the world peace and stability" on his "warmongering" visit.

The North's actions have also prompted worldwide condemnation - a reaction to the dozens of ballistic missile tests in recent years, including its effort to develop an intercontinental device capable of reaching the United States mainland.

The exercises come after the US and South Korea in their recent annual meeting on defensive policy agreed to expand the rotational deployment of strategic American military assets such as aircraft carriers, submarines and bombers to the peninsula. USS Theodore Roosevelt then will head to the Persian Gulf.

It's the first time since a 2007 exercise near Guam that three US carrier strike groups are operating together in the Western Pacific, according to the US Navy's 7th Fleet.

Shortly before flying off to Vietnam, where he will attend the APEC summit of Asia Pacific leaders, Trump tweeted: "My meetings with President Xi Jinping were very productive on both trade and the subject of North Korea".

Marc Short, White House director of legislative affairs, was responding to a question about whether Trump accepts the U.S. intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation tried to sway last year's election in his favor.

The use of nuclear weapons by Kim Jong-un could not be ruled out and a full-scale war would probably not destroy Pyongyang's nuclear capability totally he warned. "We have been provoked".

Meanwhile, Lieutenant General Jan-Marc Jouas warned in a leaked letter to members of Congress that U.S. troops are vastly outnumbered and undersupplied if World War 3 breaks out.
