Kim, dismissed by Trump previous year as "little rocket man", reached out to the American president through South Korean officials he met on Monday. And now and n he jokes about it.
Donald Trump will take a hardline position at his planned summit with the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, the White House said on Friday, as U.S. officials scrambled to keep pace with the president after his sudden acceptance of Kim's offer to talk.
The comment came after the late Thursday's stunning announcement that President Donald Trump would meet Kim soon in a landmark summit which aims at ratcheting down threats of nuclear destruction from both sides.
