WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump believes North Korean leader Kim Jong Un wants a “different, brighter future” for North Koreans, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a tweet on Thursday.
“I spoke with @POTUS while we were both in the air. The President told me he believes that Chairman Kim sees a different, brighter future for the people of North Korea. We both hope that’s true,” the tweet said.
Pompeo is heading to Pyongyang hoping to hammer out a roadmap for its nuclear disarmament.
