President Trump’s ‘Clear Objective’ Peace
- “1-Time Shot” for Chairman Kim
Saturday afternoon, US President Donald Trump said he has “a clear objective” for his upcoming nuclear Summit with NKorea’s Kim Jong Un.
He described the meeting scheduled Tuesday in Singapore as a “1-time shot” for Chairman Kim, and President Trump said he was about to undertake a “mission of peace” as he left the G7 meeting in Canada.
He said he thinks “it’s going to work out very well.”
President Trump said he thinks he will know “within the 1st minute” of meeting Kim whether the NKorean leader is serious about the nuclear negotiations.
“I think I’ll know pretty quickly whether or not, in my opinion, something positive will happen. And if I think it will not happen, I’m not going to waste my time. I do not want to waste his time,” President Trump said.
President Trump cited the unprecedented nature of the meeting and said he was convinced that Chairman Kim wants to do good things for his country.
“He could take that nation with those great people and truly make it great, so it’s a one-time, it’s a one-time shot, and I think it’s going to work out very well,” President Trump said. “That’s why I feel positive, because it makes so much sense.”
He also praised the NKoreans, saying they have been “really working very well with us” during preparations for the Summit.
“So far, so good. We’re going to have to see what happens. I very much look forward to it,” he said.
“I have a clear objective, but I have to say that it’s going to be something that will always be spur of the moment. This has not been done before at this level. This is a leader who really is an unknown personality. People don’t know much about him. I think that he’s going to surprise on the upside, very much on the upside,” President Trump said.
