Trump says he expects to receive Kim’s letter soon
WASHINGTON, U.S. President Donald Trump said Friday that he expects to receive a "positive letter" from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un soon as the two sides negotiate the dismantlement of the regime's nuclear weapons program.
Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One en route from Montana to North Dakota that the letter will likely be delivered by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
"I know that a letter is being delivered to me, a personal letter from Kim Jong-un to me, that was handed at the border," Trump said, according to a pool report. "I don't know if you know that. It was handed at the border yesterday."
South Korea's chief presidential security adviser, Chung Eui-yong, made a one-day trip to Pyongyang on Wednesday and held talks with the North's leader amid a deadlock in denuclearization negotiations between the U.S. and the North.
Chung later said Kim gave him a message to deliver to Trump.
"It's an elegant way, the way it used to be many years ago before we had all of the new contraptions that we all use," Trump said. "I think it's going to be a positive letter."
