President Donald Trump said it wouldn’t take long to know whether or not Kim Jong-un was serious about giving up his nuclear weapons.
“I think within the first minute I’ll know,” Trump said. “Just my touch, my feel. That’s what I do.”
The president made his remarks on Saturday in a press conference prior to departing the G7 summit of world leaders in Canada for the meeting with Kim in Singapore.
Trump cited the common saying that it only took five seconds to decide whether or not you would like someone to explain his comment.
“I think that very quickly I’ll know whether or not something good is going to happen,” Trump said.
He appeared optimistic that Kim was ready to deal with the United States and its allies.
