Donald Trump news: US President wrote ‘love letters’ to North Korea’s Kim Jong-un | World | News


Mr Trump made major efforts to improve US relations with North Korea, attending summits with Kim in Singapore and Hanoi. The Singapore summit, which took place in June 2018, was the first ever meeting between an American President and North Korean leader.

During this time Mr Trump and Kim exchanged a number of what the US president termed “beautiful letters”.

Details about these letters are revealed in an upcoming book by Rob Woodward, a veteran White House reporter who has already published one book about the Trump administration.

Mr Woodward’s work, titled Rage, will be published next month ahead of the US presidential election.

According to the book in total Mr Trump and Kim exchanged 25 letters.

In one of these the North Korean dictator described his relationship with Mr Trump as like something from a “fantasy film”.

Mr Trump caused controversy in 2018 when he claimed he and Kim had “fell in love” during there correspondence.

The president made this remark during an address to supporters in West Virginia.

Referring to the North Korean leader he said: “I was really being tough and so was he.

According to Kim Yo-jong, sister to the North Korean leader, Mr Trump attempted to reach out again this year as the COVID-19 pandemic struck.

The American president reportedly offered North Korea aid to fight the infection.

Ms Kim claimed Mr Trump had “wished the family of the Chairman and our people well-being”.

She added: “We try to hope for the day when the relations between the two countries would be as good as the ones between the two top leaders.”

Mr Trump’s negotiations with North Korea were aimed at getting the isolated country to abandon its nuclear weapons programme.

In this they were unsuccessful and in June North Korea blew up a liaison office it operated to manage relations with the South.

However North Korea hasn’t conducted a nuclear test since September 2017.

For his book Mr Woodward interviewed Mr Trump around a dozen times in the White House.

The book is believed to focus on both foreign and domestic US affairs.

Americans will go to the polls in November to decide whether to replace Mr Trump as president by Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden.
