Trump Was Asked if He’s Spoken to Kim Jong-un. His Answer Will Surprise You.

The Wall Street Journal had the chance to interview President Trump this week, and they seemed to spend a good deal of time discussing North Korea and its unpredictable leader, Kim Jong-un.

At one point, the Journal asked Trump if he has spoken with Kim. The president did not say no.

Asked if he has spoken with Mr. Kim, Mr. Trump said: ”I don’t want to comment on it. I’m not saying I have or haven’t. I just don’t want to comment.”

Has President Trump spoken with Kim? It seems unlikely, given the chilly nature of America’s relationship with North Korea. Still, Trump boasted that he “probably [has] a very good relationship” with the reclusive North Korean leader.

“I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un, ” Mr. Trump said in an interview Thursday with The Wall Street Journal. “I have relationships with people. I think you people are surprised.”

Trump has not tweeted about North Korea for a few days, otherwise occupied with his media fights and his messaging on immigration. But Trump’s last tweet on North Korea said that new talks between North Korea and South Korea “are a good thing.”

Time will tell if North Korea, South Korea, and Trump can broker a peace deal, but there may be more to this complicated relationship than meets the public eye.
