    In the first comments on Trump's visit by a North Korean official, a Pyongyang foreign ministry spokesman said the trip was a "warmonger's visit for confrontation to rid the DPRK of its self-defensive nuclear deterrence", according to the state-run KCNA news agency.

    "It is also nothing but a business trip by a warmonger to enrich the monopolies of the U.S. defence industry by milking the moneybags from its subordinate 'allies'."

    Trump, during his visit, laid bare his true nature as destroyer of the world peace and stability and begged for a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula."

    The statement blasts Trump for "lunatic remarks" about destroying North Korea at the UN General Assembly in September.

    Trump this week warned North Korea not to underestimate the US as he used his Asia visit to seek support for ramping up sanctions on the secretive state.
