The President said he is looking forward to the looming denuclearization talks with North Korea and expressed confidence the meetings will be productive.
He praised China for its cooperation on the North Korean sanctions, and highlighted Beijing’s role in bringing Pyongyang to the negotiating table.
President Trump also said his administration is engaged in productive talks with Beijing, on reducing the $500 billion U.S. trade deficit with China.
“Perhaps that’s one of the reasons that they are so helpful. They’ve been really terrific in helping us get to some kind of settlement. Meetings are being set up right now between myself and Kim Jong Un who will be –I think it will be terrific. I think we’ll go in with a lot of respect, and we’ll see what happens. So we’ve come a long way but China has really helped us at the border and we appreciate it.” -President Trump
President Trump confirmed the meeting will likely take place next month or in early June.
