During his recent rally in West Virginia, President Donald Trump said he and Kim Jong-un “fell in love” after he received “beautiful letters” from the North Korean leader.
Trump also said the United States and North Korea have “a very good relationship.”
> The president’s comments, at a political rally Saturday night in Wheeling, W.Va., came just hours after a North Korean official said talks between the countries had deadlocked. The U.S. wants North Korea to dismantle its nuclear-arms program.
> “Without any trust in the U.S., there will be no confidence in our national security and under such circumstances, there is no way we will unilaterally disarm ourselves first,” North Korea’s foreign minister, Ri Yong Ho, told the U.N. General Assembly earlier Saturday.
> Trump said talks between Washington and Pyongyang had reached a deadlock because of continued pressure from the U.S. to uphold sanctions and Washington’s objection to formally declaring an end to the Korean War.
