Pushing The Envelope? Kim Jong Un’s Massive Letter To Trump

Pushing The Envelope? Kim Jong Un’s Massive Letter To Trump

A North Korean delegation visited the White House on Friday to hand deliver a letter to President Trump. "But I see over a period of time", Trump said. "How much? How much?" "I said 'What's the point goal of that?' but it could be a positive meeting".

He added: "I may be in for a big surprise, folks".

Kim has invested heavily in North Korea's nuclear weapons development program while starving the country financially and demanding luxury accommodations from foreign nations, including South Korea which covered $2.6 million in travel expenses for him during the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics.

Kim Yong Chol's White House visit coming after a whirlwind two days of meetings in NY with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Prior to Friday's meeting, Kim Yong Chol met with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in New York City on Wednesday and Thursday.

"I told them, 'I think that you're going to have, probably, others.' Hey, wouldn't it be wonderful if we walked out and everything was settled all of a sudden from sitting down for a couple of hours?" "And you know, this war has been going on - it's got to be the longest war - nearly 70 years, right?"

He was in Singapore to meet the U.S. planning team led by White House deputy chief of staff Joe Hagin to work out logistics for the summit. So I think what this means is that there is a lot of movement going on between the two Koreas, but I will say those movements and activities are limited to improving ties in terms of people-to-people exchanges and cultural exchanges, sports exchanges.

But even the suggestion of Assad's outreach to North Korea is certain to ripple through White House efforts to define an agenda for the planned June 12 summit in Singapore between Trump and Kim.

"We're getting along, so it's not a question of maximum pressure", he said.

Did Kim, a third-generation heredity leader, think Mr. Trump would share his love for lavish gestures and things grandiose?

Cho said that while he did not oppose China's participation in declaring an end to the Korean War, Beijing's involvement must come after the two Koreas and the United States reach an agreement and that there was no need for the three countries to wait for Beijing's participation.

Trump also expressed hope that North Korea would agree to denuclearize, although he didn't anticipate that that would happen after one meeting.

"The relationships are building and that's very positive", he said.

When it comes to paying for lodging at North Korea's preferred 5-star luxury hotel, the United States is open to covering the costs, the two people said, but it's mindful that Pyongyang may view a USA payment as insulting.

It remains unclear whether North Korean Vice Marshal Jo Myong Rok was carrying a letter from the late Kim Jong Il, the second North Korean leader, when he visited former President Bill Clinton at the White House in 2000.
