President Trump Makes An Unexpected Statement About Kim Jong Un

During an interview with The Wall Street Journal, President Trump stated "I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un."

From WSJ: WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump suggested he has developed a positive relationship with North Korea’s leader despite their mutual public insults, signaling a possible new openness to diplomacy after months of escalating tensions over the rogue state’s nuclear program.

“I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un,” Mr. Trump said in an interview Thursday with The Wall Street Journal. “I have relationships with people. I think you people are surprised.”


Asked if he has spoken with Mr. Kim, Mr. Trump said: ”I don’t want to comment on it. I’m not saying I have or haven’t. I just don’t want to comment.”

Mr. Trump’s new comments on North Korea, with which the U.S. has no formal diplomatic relations, came amid a wide-ranging, 45-minute interview in the Oval Office. Seated behind the Resolute Desk, dressed in a dark blue suit, a white-and-blue striped tie and a white shirt with “45” monogrammed on the sleeves (a reference to his status as the 45th U.S. president), Mr. Trump talked about several aspects of the first year of his presidency.

After repeatedly calling for Mexico to pay for a border wall, he said for the first time that negotiations to revise the North American Free Trade Agreement may yield, in effect, the funding for construction of the wall.
