US President Donald Trump speaks in support of Republican congressional candidate Rick Sacconne during a Make America Great Again rally in Moon Township, Pennsylvania March 10, 2018. — Reuters pic MOON TOWNSHIP, March 11 — US President Donald Trump said yesterday his planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un could fizzle without an agreement or it could result in "the greatest deal for the world" to ease nuclear tensions between the two countries.
“I may leave fast” if progress does not seem possible, Trump said at a campaign rally for Republican congressional candidate Rick Saccone in western Pennsylvania. Trump said he believes North Korea wants to make peace and that, “I think it's time.”
A time and place to meet has not yet been set, although the meeting is supposed to happen by the end of May.
“Who knows what's going to happen?” said Trump, who added that if the meeting takes place, "I may leave fast or we may sit down and make the greatest deal for the world."
Trump made the shocking decision on Thursday to meet with Kim after the North Korean leader's invitation was relayed by a South Korean delegation who visited the White House. The move abruptly reversed decades of US policy aimed at preventing North Korea from developing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.
