NEW DELHI: US President Donald Trump said he and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un have fallen “in love” their bromance fuelled by “beautiful letters” from the leader of the nuclear-armed state.
While addressing his partisans at a West Virginia rally, Trump told fellow Republicans, “And then we fell in love OK? No really. He wrote me beautiful letters and they’re great letters. We fell in love.” Trump followed those comments by saying Wednesday he had received an “extraordinary letter” from Kim, and sounded optimistic about prospects for a second summit between the two leaders “fairly quickly.”
Although denuclearization talks between the two countries have stalled, the two leaders’ relationship has shifted from venomous personal attacks last year to expressions of endearment this year.
Last August, after US media reported Pyongyang had successfully miniaturized a nuclear warhead to fit into a missile, after which the US President said “The entire United States is within range of our nuclear weapons, and a nuclear button is always on my desk. This is reality, not a threat.
