Trump suggests he's developed a positive relationship with Kim Jong

Trump suggests he's developed a positive relationship with Kim Jong”

"I have relationships with people. I'm not saying I have or I haven't". Kim has responded by calling the U.S. president a "mentally deranged USA dotard". "I just don't want to comment". "I think you people are surprised".

Trump had said on Saturday that he was open to talking to Kim. North Korea's aggressive pursuit of a ballistic missile capable of hitting the United States with a nuclear warhead has emerged as the president's most fraught foreign crisis. It appeared to be a softening of rhetoric, given that Trump had lectured Secretary of State Rex Tillerson previous year that it would be a waste of time "trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man", Trump's nickname for Kim. Technically, South Korea and the United States remain at war with North Korea after the Korean War ended in 1953 with an armistice instead of a peace treaty. North Korea has responded to the South's offers to talk, however, Pyongyang has not yet signaled any readiness to engage the U.S.in dialogue, given the Trump administration's insistence on complete denuclearization.

The president has threatened the North with "fire and fury", warning that America is prepared to "totally destroy" North Korea if necessary.

A White House statement said the two leaders discussed Macron's recent visit to China and committed to continue to apply pressure on North Korea.

Trump said the stop-and-go nature to his strategy with North Korea is intentional and part of a broader goal. "He's been advised by a lot of agencies and departments of the damage it would cause and the number of victims", the official said.

A Japanese ruling party lawmaker said he did not believe the Korean talks could narrow the gap between North Korea's demand for recognition as a nuclear-armed state and the USA refusal to accept that.
