He said he asked the Russian leader if he interfered in the 2016 United States election and received assurances from Mr Putin that he "absolutely did not meddle".

Asked at news conference with Vietnam's president later Sunday if he could become friends with the North Korean leader, Trump replied it "might be a unusual thing to happen but it's certainly a possibility".

Trump also tweeted about what he said were the failures of the previous administration to improve relations with Russian Federation.

The post came in response to the country's foreign ministry calling Trump "an old lunatic" over his speech in South Korea.

On Aug. 8, Trump threatened the regime with "fire and fury like the world has never seen", leading Kim to say he would consider sending missiles into the waters off the coast of Guam in "mid-August".

On Saturday, Kim's government responded by accusing Trump of trying to demonize North Korea, keep it apart from the global community and undermine its government.

For the last months, the two leaders have been on two ends of a bitter war of words prompted in part by Pyongyang refusal to cease ballistic missile tests and the development of nuclear capabilities.

Both women said they told others about the incident the day after it happened and they "could already feel the backlash". The New York premiere of Louis C.K.'s upcoming film, I Love You, Daddy , set for Thursday, has been canceled .

He also turned his attention to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who had again called him a dotard, a term that describes an elderly person who is losing his mental abilities.

"They [North Korea] likely understand that - unlike visits of high-level officials - to do an ICBM while the president is in the region is a bigger gamble", said Jenny Town, managing editor of 38 North, a website devoted to analysis on North Korea.

In the first of three successive tweets Sunday morning, Trump hit back at his critics.

The US think-tank said: "Although Pyongyang is outspent by its neighbours in dollar-to-dollar comparisons and defence experts say it operates with raging equipment and technology, the regime's forward-deployed military position and missiles aimed at Seoul ensure that Pyongyang's conventional capabilities remain a constant threat to its southern neighbour".

"Ultimately, it'll all work out", Trump added.

But the administration shouldn't be too quick to praise North Korea's restraint.

"And this artificial Democratic hit job gets in the way", Mr Trump said.
