A combination photo shows President Donald Trump (L) in New York, September 21, 2017 and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in an undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) in Pyongyang, September 4, 2017. As North Korea has been an important focal point for this trip, the rogue regime has been spewing vitriol on the regular.
His comments came after Trump threatened in his maiden United Nations address to totally destroy the country of 26 million people if the U.S. were threatened.
Trump has denied that his campaign coordinated in any way with Moscow during last year's presidential campaign, and he said Saturday that Russian President Vladimir Putin again denied any involvement in trying to influence the US elections when Trump spoke with him at a regional summit in Danang, Vietnam.
The president has called Kim, whose government has conducted six nuclear tests, "rocket man" in tweets and in speech to the United Nations.
Mr Trump has played hawk and dove with the North during his sweep of five Asian countries - denouncing it as a "cruel dictatorship" while offering its leader a diplomatic way out of the crisis over Pyongyang's growing nuclear arsenal. "But before we can do that they need to continue to not provoke and we have seen that for the past two months", she said.
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 USA occupation and domination". "I want to solve North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, terrorism, and Russian Federation can greatly help!" he added.
"We have repeatedly said that we do not hold the hostile policy, we don't seek to change regime, we don't seek to march beyond the DMZ", she said.
Visiting Asia, the president has tried to bring the world together in pressurising North Korea's nuclear weapons programme, something that's proving somewhat of a tough task.
Asked by a reporter if the subject of Russian election interference came up, Trump said: "He said he absolutely did not meddle in our election". "When I would NEVER call him "short and fat?".
"Having a good relationship with Russia's a great, great thing".
"He acknowledged that war can not be promoted by anybody, it would only mean destruction for all of us", Mr Duterte told reporters after flying back to Manila.
