US President Donald Trump said that America has made a lot of progress with respect to North Korea after he came to power and the two countries no longer seem to be going to a war as looked like before.
“Prior to becoming President, it looked like we were going to war with North Korea, and now we have a lot of progress. We’ve gotten our prisoners back. We’re getting our remains back. They continue to come in. A lot of tremendous things,” he told reporters at the White House.
“But, very importantly, no missile testing, no nuclear testing. Now they want to go and put a bid in for the Olympics. No, we have a lot of very good things going,” Trump said responding to a question on his relationship with the North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.
When asked about reports that Kim Jong Un wants reciprocal measures, Trump said he will see what the North Korean leader is looking at. “But in the meantime, we’re talking. It’s very calm. He’s calm; I’m calm. So we’ll see what happens,” he said.
Trump said he got a very good news from North and South Korea as their leaders met once again.
“We had very good news from North Korea, South Korea. They met, and we had some great responses. I got a tremendous letter from Kim Jong Un. As you know, it was delivered three days ago. We’re making tremendous progress with respect to North Korea,” he said.
