Kim Jong-un visits science academy in his first inspection this year

Hawaii warning

"I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong-Un", Trump told The Wall Street Journal in an interview. That's not only because there are other stakeholders, but also because Pyongyang still refuses to relinquish its pursuit of nuclear weapons - grounds for war, according to the United States, which has been placed in the firing line.

It has lowered the probability of any US military strike aimed at derailing the North's nuclear weapons program and breathed new life into the tit-for-tat diplomatic solution promoted by China and Russian Federation. "As a former steward of the nuclear launch keys, I've learned about the stability, competence and temperament it takes to hold such a responsibility, and Donald Trump has shown us all he possesses none of those qualities".

On a phone call with South Korean President Moon Jae-in after the talks, Mr Trump suggested he was open to discussion between the U.S. and North Korea as well.

That puts Seoul well within range of Mr Kim Jong Un's artillery, and Pentagon projections have warned he could kill as many as 20,000 South Koreans a day - even without nuclear weapons.

"These officials feared that the USA was already trying to shape the battlefield for a military operation against the North, and that South Koreans do not seem to have grasped the reality that the Trump administration is set on a course for preventive war", Vorontsov wrote.

Trump has consistently claimed his supposed business acumen would bolster industries across the U.S. Whether his policies have been good for the economy more broadly is open to debate, but it seems the president has been beneficial for companies dealing in products related to nuclear disaster.

Trump did not give a clear answer on whether he had already spoken with Kim - something that either elusive or deemed inconceivable in previous administrations: "I don't want to comment on it. I'm a very flexible person".

Donald Trump has repeatedly threatened Pyongyang over the past 12 months in what has played out as escalating game of verbal jibes between himself and Kim Jong-un regime. He said North Korea has achieved its strategic goal.

Trump's approach - one for which millions of Americans have longed - is to treat them like the sniveling bullies they are. It appeared to be a softening of rhetoric, given that Trump lectured Secretary of State Rex Tillerson previous year that it would be a waste of time "trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man", Trump's nickname for Kim. "We are a wonderful barometer of the level of anxiety in the country", Morris told NPR. The US responded to North Korean actions by flexing its muscles and conducting a number of military drills in the region with its allies South Korea and Japan.

Although Trump's tone toward North Korea and its leader mostly ranged from "Little Rocket Man" and threats of "fire and fury" a year ago, Trump, at times, has also praised its leader and indicated that he would be open to talks with him.
