Reports: Trump and Kim Have Been Talking for a While

President Trump gave multiple indications to reporters on Tuesday that he and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un have been discussing terms of negotiation for months.

First, in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopolous, the president claimed that he spoke over the phone with Kim in the months prior to the summit.

“I have spoken to [Kim]. I’ve spoken to a lot of his people,” he said. Trump pointed out that Kim’s top diplomat visited the White House last week.

Then, on the Air Force One ride home, Trump suggested to reporters that he started having conversations with the North Korean leader 3 months ago.

Though the summit yesterday was a historic meeting, the beginning of warming relations between the United States and North Korea kicked off months ago.
