“We’ve had a great relationship,” he said.

Mr. Trump focused on North Korea and its nuclear threat during his visits to South Korea and China and even fired off a series of tweets Saturday, calling North Korean leader Kim Jong Un “short and fat.” He later said during a press briefing Sunday in Hanoi, Vietnam that he would be a “good thing” if he and Kim became friends.
In a speech before South Korea’s national assembly last week, Mr. Trump warned North Korea not to “underestimate” the U.S.
“Do not underestimate us. Do not try us. We will defend our common security, our shared prosperity, and our sacred liberty,” Mr. Trump said.
