Trump sent a love note to Kim Jong Un through South Korean president saying that he likes the dictator
According to a statement, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said that President Donald Trump asked him to pass a note to North Korea’s dictator.
According to CNN’s Manu Raju, the note said, “President Trump has a very amicable view of Chairman Kim and that he likes Chairman Kim… As much that he wishes to implement the rest of the agreement with Chairman Kim and that he will make true what Chairman Kim wishes.”
Trump hasn’t managed to get Kim Jong Un to agree
During a Minnesota rally in June, Trump told the audience, their agreement outlines denuclearization.
“Sentence one says ‘a total denuclearization of North Korea,’” Trump said. “There will be denuclearization. So that’s the real story.”
While it may have been a huge applause line for Trump, it isn’t true.
“President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) held a first, historic summit in Singapore on June 12, 2018,” the first sentence actually reads.
While it does deal with denuclearization, it doesn’t commit North Korea to anything.
“Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,” the official statement said.
Not long after, however, it gives the true mandate: “[T]he DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”
In April, Kim agreed to suspend nuclear tests, though he said it was because they didn’t need them anymore.
In August, however, it revealed North Korea was still developing nuclear weapons, despite the agreement to “work” on things.
Trump announced that he and Kim would be meeting in 2019 to continue their “talks.” It’s unclear the point of the note for the dictator, but at least it reaffirmed his feelings for the so-called “Chairman.”
“He wrote me beautiful letters and we fell in love, OK?” Trump told a West Virginia audience. “No really. He wrote me beautiful letters.
