‘We’re Getting Along,’ Trump Says in Restoring Kim Talks
After meeting a top adviser to Kim Jong Un at the White House, President Donald Trump declared Friday that his June 12 summit in Singapore with the North Korean leader is back on. Kim Yong Chol’s D.C. visit was the first in 18 years by a senior Pyongyang official, and has lent the discussion a new tone. Trump said he’ll avoid “maximum pressure” now that “we’re going to really start a process,” albeit a slow one. Some worry the U.S. is making concessions, but many are relieved to see diplomacy transcending belligerence.
