President Trump spoke with Hannity about the meeting with Chairman Kim Jong Un, and revealed a few secrets.
When President Trump took jabs at the North Korean leader, calling him things like "little rocket man" and threatening to attack him with "fire and fury", the president knew exactly what he was doing, and it was all part of his bigger plan. From the way things appear right now, that plan worked.
As reported by foxnews.com
President Trump, in an interview Tuesday with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, complimented North Korean leader Kim Jong Un after their Singapore summit as a “strong guy” and a “great negotiator,” and argued his once-fiery rhetoric directed toward Kim worked.
“He’s got a very good personality, he’s funny, and he’s very, very smart,” Trump said of Kim in the interview that aired Tuesday night. “He’s a great negotiator, and he’s a very strategic kind of a guy.”
The president said he and Kim “got along very well” from “the beginning” of the summit.
That’s in stark contrast to just a few months ago, when the president dismissively referred to Kim as “Little Rocket Man,” and warned North Korea that it “will be met with fire and the fury like the world has never seen” if it provoked the United States with its nuclear program.
But Trump told Hannity he thought his tough style paved the way for Tuesday’s summit. “I think without the rhetoric, we wouldn’t have been here,” Trump said. “I really believe that.”
Added Trump: “So, I think the rhetoric, I hated to do it. Sometimes I felt foolish doing it. But we had no choice. “
President Trump also shared with Hannity a reiteration that we will no longer be putting on shows of force with South Korea, putting an end to the "war games" near the peninsula, as long as negotiations are taking place. While some were looking for, and possibly expecting, and immediate forceful denuclearization of the peninsula, this will most likely be a marathon and not a race.
