President Donald Trump on Saturday, March 10, said he believed North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s assurance that no more missile tests would be carried out before the pair’s planned meeting.
President Trump also said that China and its leader, Xi Jinping, had done “more for us than they had ever done for any other president” over the issue of North Korea.
The president also criticized the press for its coverage of his decision to agree to direct talks with North Korea.
President Trump says that, for the first two hours, the coverage of him was “unbelievable.”
But by the next day, he noted, the coverage had turned.
The president was discussing how he came to his decision to meet with Kim Jong Un at a rally aimed at boosting special election candidate Rick Saccone.
