Trump slams ´haters´ over Russia, takes dig at N. Korea´s Kim
Hanoi: US President Donald Trump unleashed a twitter storm from his Asia tour today, slamming “haters and fools” playing politics with US-Russia ties and declaring that he would never describe North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un as “short and fat”.
Currently on the Vietnam leg of a five-nation sweep through the region, the US president, who has been relatively quiet on Twitter since leaving Washington, put out half-a-dozen tweets in quick succession ahead of his official welcoming ceremony in Hanoi.
The missives covered a range of subjects from Trump´s relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, China´s efforts to rein in Pyongyang´s nuclear weapons programme, and a sarcastic tweet about his efforts to make “a friend” of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.
The US president, who met with Putin several times on the margins of the just-concluded APEC summit in the Vietnamese resort of Danang, took a fresh swipe at critics of his efforts to forge a close working relationship with the Russian leader.
“When will all the haters and fools out there realize that having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing,” he tweeted. “There (sic) always playing politics – bad for our country. I want to solve North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, terrorism, and Russia can greatly help!” he added. -AFP
