Trump says he’s still optimistic about a deal, North Korea warns its losing patience
North Korea on Wednesday warned the United States government that it “would be well-advised” to change its approach toward Pyongyang “before it is too late,” because there is “a limit to our patience.” The regime also said that the US “has missed a lifetime opportunity” by insisting that North Korea dismantle its entire nuclear program first.
In response, US President Donald Trump said that he wants to make a deal with North Korea and that he believes Pyongyang wants this as well. Trump stated that his administration’s approach to North Korea has so far been a success “because there hasn’t been testing of anything major and there has been no nuclear testing.”
US-North Korea relations have significantly deteriorated since the collapse of a February nuclear summit attended by US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jung-un.
