Trump’s personal letter to Kim revealed. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un received a personal letter from US President Donald Trump with “excellent” content, the official North Korean news agency KCNA announced on Sunday, as negotiations between the two countries remain mired.
“After reading the letter,” Kim “said with satisfaction that her content was excellent,” KCNA said. “Marking appreciation for President Trump’s faculty of political judgment and extraordinary courage, Kim Jong-un said he would carefully study its interesting content.”
The official North Korean daily Rodong Sinmun has published a photo of Kim in his office reading Donald Trump’s letter. KCNA did not give further details on the content of the missive. The White House has refused to confirm that Donald Trump sent a letter to his North Korean counterpart, but the South Korean presidency said it was aware of the existence of the letter. Seoul “sees this as positive, as the dialogue between the North and the United States continues to move forward through exchanges of letters at the highest level,” said the presidency.
On June 11, Donald Trump said he had received a “magnificent” and “very warm” letter from Kim Jong-un, adding that he continued to trust the North Korean despite the lack of tangible progress on denuclearization.
In early May, North Korea conducted two short-range missile tests in in less than a week, which alarmed the international community. However, President Donald Trump said on Twitter that he still trusted the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, despite stalled nuclear talks and recent weapons tests led by Pyongyang.
“North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me. I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me, & also smiled when he called Swampman Joe Biden a low IQ individual, & worse. Perhaps that’s sending me a signal?” the President twitted.

The US president also said he “smiled” at the North Korean official KCNA’s insults against former vice president Joe Biden, dubbed “fool” and “low IQ idiot” after criticism against the North Korean leader.
