Trump spoke during a news conference with Italian Prime Minister Conte. He said:
I’ll meet with anybody. I believe in meeting. The Prime Minister said it better than anybody can say it: Speaking to other people, especially when you’re talking about potentials of war and death and famine and lots of other things — you meet. There’s nothing wrong with meeting. We met, as you know, with Chairman Kim. And it — you haven’t had a missile fired off in nine months. We got our prisoners back. So many things have happened. So positive.
I don’t think it’s been so positive. There’s been very little progress with North Korea, which in the meantime is updating its missile and nuclear programs.
