The article below comes from Buzzfeed News Reporter Salvador Hernandez.

President Donald Trump traded petty insults with North Korea's supreme leader Kim Jung Un Sunday, but told reporters shortly after that perhaps one day, he and the North Korean dictator might one day be friends.

"Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old,' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat?'" Trump tweeted Sunday after arriving in Hanoi, Vietnam. "Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!"

This isn't the first time Trump and Kim have traded barbs. The president has called Kim, whose government has conducted six nuclear tests, "rocket man" in tweets and in speech to the United Nations.

Kim responded to those jabs with an insult of his own, saying in a statement aimed at Trump that "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire."

But Trump's remarks Sunday suggesting the two world leaders could become friends was a first for the president, and possibly any US leader since beginning of the Korean War in 1950. Though an armistice ceased fighting in that conflict, no peace treaty has ever been signed, and North Korea still tensely face off with South Korean and US forces at the demilitarized zone that splits the Korean peninsula at the 38th parallel.

Trump has often equated personal relationships with foreign leaders with broader US foreign policy, speaking often about his friendship with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his warm regard for China's Xi Jinping.
