As The Associated Press noted, Trump in September tweeted, "South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work". "Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face". "Dead stop. The flourishing ends, and the prison state of North Korea sadly begins".

"Together we have in our power to finally liberate this region and the world from this very serious nuclear menace, but it will require collective action, collective strength and collective devotion to winning the peace", Trump said.

"The Korean miracle extends exactly as far as the armies of free nations advanced in 1953 - 24 miles to the north", Trump said.

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

Trump's earlier threats to "totally destroy" North Korea if it threatened the United States, and the personal insults he exchanged with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un after the North's most recent missile and nuclear tests, had raised fears in the region of military conflict.

In a statement issued through government mouthpiece the Korean Central News Agency, as cited by Reuters, Pyongyang said the U.S. President's trip "laid bare his true nature as destroyer of world peace".
