President Trump on Thursday said North Korean leader Kim Jong Un sent him a “very nice note” on future relations between the United States and North Korea, days after the Hermit Kingdom slammed “regrettable” talks with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s delegation.
The letter comes days after the North Korean Foreign Ministry released a statement accusing the U.S. of "gangster-like" demands and trying to unilaterally pressure the country into abandoning its nuclear weapons.
Pompeo and his delegation had just traveled to North Korea to meet with senior North Korean official Kim Yong Chol.
On Sunday, Pompeo seemingly shrugged off the bombastic statement and said the talks with North Korean officials were conducted in “good faith.”
In exchange, the North Korean despot wants “security guarantees” for his country.
