President Donald Trump said he ‘probably’ had a great relationship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, despite ridiculing him on Twitter.
“I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong-un of North Korea,” he said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.
He admitted that his comments on Twitter were combative, but that they could still have a good relationship.
He also commented on his good relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping, although he admitted that China could do more to stop North Korea.
“I think it sends a good message to North Korea, not a bad message,” he said.
Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me "old," when I would NEVER call him "short and fat?" Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!
