During his rally in Atlanta, Donald Trump floated the idea of holding talks with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un if Kim came to the U.S. to discuss his nuclear arsenal. However, Kim wouldn’t be completely welcomed in the U.S. like other world leaders.
“If he came here, I would accept him,” Trump said during the rally. “But I wouldn’t give him a state dinner like China, or all these other nations who are ripping us off.”
Trump said he would talk to Kim even if there was a “10 percent or a 20 percent chance that I can talk him out of those damn nukes.”
This isn’t the first time Trump has suggested that he would talk with Kim. In a May interview with Reuters, Trump proposed that he would meet with Kim.
“It is up to the decision of my Supreme Leader whether he decides to meet or not, but I think his (Trump’s) idea or talk is nonsense,” So Se Pyong, Pyongyang’s ambassador to the UN, told Reuters. “It’s for utilization of the presidential election, that’s all. A kind of a propaganda or advertisement. This is useless, just a gesture for the presidential election.”
