Washington Times National Security Team Leader Guy Taylor is in Vietnam, traveling with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ahead of the summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
How Kim went from ‘Little Rocket Man’ to having a ‘really good’ relationship with Trump:
President Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un Wednesday at the start of their second denuclearization summit, proclaiming that their “great relationship” will lead to fruitful negotiations.
“I think it’ll be very successful,” Mr. Trump told reporters. “The biggest progress is our relationship is really a good one.”
He told Mr. Kim that North Korea has “tremendous economic potential” from eased economic sanctions if he agrees to abandon its weapons program.
Mr. Kim thanked the president for his “courageous decision” to negotiate with him personally, and said there have been “some misunderstandings” in the 261 days since their last meeting.
