President Trump said he’s hopeful that China can help the United States deal with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in the future and touted the “great chemistry” he says he had with Chinese President Xi Jinping at their recent meeting.

“Really liked him. We had a great chemistry, I think,” Mr. Trump said in an interview that aired Wednesday on Fox Business Network. “Maybe he didn’t like me, but I think he liked me.”

Mr. Trump said the “first thing” he brought up in the recent meeting at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida was North Korea, in the wake of that country’s recent missile tests.

“I think China can help us. I hope China can help us,” Mr. Trump said. “We talked about trade. And I can tell you, China will do much better on trade if they help us” with North Korea.

Mr. Trump also said on Twitter Wednesday that he had a “very good call” Tuesday evening with the Chinese president “concerning the menace of North Korea.”
