During a rambling chat with reporters at his Monday Cabinet meeting, President Donald Trump hinted that his administration is working on a potential trade deal with North Korea, according to The Week.
Bringing up trade deals in general, Trump said the agreements he is working on are “incredible.” Then he brought up North Korea — either by accident, intending to say South Korea instead, or on purpose, because he truly hopes to strike a deal with Kim Jong Un.
"These trade deals are incredible," Trump said. "Whether it’s North Korea, South Korea — probably, something is going to be happening with North Korea too. There’s some very interesting information on North Korea. A lot of things are going on. And that's going to be a major rebuild at a certain point."
Earlier in his remarks, Trump again mentioned his rapport with Kim, saying, “I like Kim; he likes me. We get along. I respect him; he respects him.”
