On Saturday, President Trump said he would “absolutely” be willing to speak over the phone to Kim Jong-un of North Korea.
The POTUS also expressed hope that pre-Olympics talks between North and South Korea are a step in the right direction.
“Absolutely, I would do that,” Trump said of speaking to Jong-un. “I have no problem with that at all.”

Trump suggested the talks might lead to an easing of tensions and took credit for the diplomatic breakthrough, saying it was a result of his steady pressure.
“Look, right now they’re talking Olympics. It’s a start, it’s big start. If I weren’t involved they wouldn’t be talking at all right now,” he said.
Kim “knows I’m not messing around. I’m not messing around. Not even a little bit, not even one percent. He understands that,” said Trump.
“If something can come out of those talks, that would be a great thing for all of humanity, that would be a great thing for the world,” he said.
Indeed, Mr. President. Now let’s make it happen and enjoy a peaceful Winter Olympics!
