President Trump on Thursday told the Wall Street Journal that he “probably” has a “very good relationship” with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, even though the two leaders have feuded publicly.
“I have relationships with people. I think you people are surprised,” he told the Wall Street Journal during an interview published Thursday. “You’ll see that a lot with me … and then all of a sudden, somebody’s my best friend. I could give you 20 examples. You could give me 30. I’m a very flexible person.”
Over the past several months Trump has called Kim a “maniac,” “short and fat” and “rocket man,” and the North Korean leader has characterized the U.S. President as a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard.”
