Trump claims he 'probably' has a good relationship with N. Korea leader

Trump said on Thursday, during an interview with the Wall Street Journal, that he believes he has developed a positive relationship with North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un.

"If I were them, I would try", he said.

Kim and President Donald Trump have engaged in an increasingly sharp war of words as North Korea's weapons programs advance, each of them belittling the other.

Since Kim inherited power in 2011, North Korea has made rapid progress towards its goal of developing a missile that can deliver an atomic warhead to the United States, which significantly strengthens its negotiating position.

The images, taken on December 28, 2017 and revealed on Thursday by US-based website 38North, show that significant tunnel excavation activities were being carried out in the so-called Western Portal in Punggye-ri, in northeastern North Korea, Efe news reported.

"Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button", Trump answered, "but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!" Kim has referred to Trump as a "mentally deranged US dotard". "I'm a very flexible person".

"A lot of good talks are going on now".

White House spokespeople didn't immediately respond to questions about whether Trump and Kim had spoken. And if the North demands the South suspend its joint military drills with the USA, another expert pointed out, Seoul could lead Pyongyang to talk directly with Washington on that matter.

Trump spoke Wednesday with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, and the Blue House readout of the call said the USA president promised he wouldn't attack North Korea while the two Asian nations hold talks.

The U.S. has not had formal negotiations with North Korea on its nuclear program since 2012.

Kim has vowed never to give up his country's nuclear weapons, regarding them as his last line of defense against a USA invasion. The two nations have remained in a state of war and without diplomatic relations since the Korean War ended in 1953 without a peace treaty.
