At a summit in Seoul Tuesday, Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-In agreed to increase the deployment of USA military assets around the Korean peninsula to step up pressure on the North.
It's all documented. With President Donald Trump, some people do think that his Twitter and overall personality could make a nuclear exchange more likely.
The four-day drills that began in waters off South Korea's eastern coast come as President Donald Trump continues a visit to Asia that has been dominated by discussions over the North Korean nuclear threat.
"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.
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 USA forces at the demilitarized zone that splits the Korean peninsula at the 38th parallel.

Following his stop in South Korea, the President travelled on to China - North Korea's biggest ally and trading partner.
"Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face".
It's odd, one minute Kim is talking about nuclear war, testing missiles, then he calls Trump "old".
Asked if he could see himself being friends with Kim, Trump said: "That might be a odd thing to happen but it's a possibility".
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 odd thing to happen but it's certainly a possibility". "I don't know if it will but it would be very, very nice".
