WASHINGTON — US President Donald Trump says on Thursday he would ‘certainly’ invite North Korea’s Kim Jong-un to visit the United States if summit negotiations in Singapore go well.
“I think that could happen,” Trump said during a Rose Garden press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
Speaking of the possibility, Trump said: “I think it will be well-received. I think he would look at it very favorably.” Trump said that he is also “totally prepared to walk” if things do not go well, noting that he “did it once before”.
He also said he believes Mr Kim is prepared to do something that will be great for his country, his family and himself and said “normalising relations is something that I would hope to do” once the negotiations with North Korea are completed.
Trump will meet Kim in Singapore on June 12, a first-ever meeting between sitting North Korean and US leaders and one focused on Pyongyang’s ominous nuclear weapons program.
