Did Donald Trump fat-shame Kim Jong-un?

US President Donald Trump's latest gaffe has appalled the world after he appeared to fat-shame North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

As the two rotund rulers met for a working lunch during their summit, Mr Trump told photographers to take flattering shots.

"Getting a good picture everybody? So we look nice and handsome and thin and perfect," he said.

The remark was translated for Mr Kim, and a camera zoomed in right in time to capture his reaction.

The North Korean leader appeared to be less than amused - and the result has gone viral.

Mr Kim is said to be notoriously prickly about his weight gain, and has traditionally favoured public executions for his critics.

And it's not the first the US President has mocked his opponent's weight.

"Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old,' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat'?" he said during a previous spat.

"Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!"

It appears that day is even further away now.
