President Trump struck an upbeat, yet cautious tone about Kim Jong Un after North Korea’s latest missile launch early Saturday morning local time.

“Kim Jong Un has been pretty straight with me, I think, and we’re going to see what’s going on, we’re going to see what’s happening,” Trump said to reporters in Washington, D.C., before boarding Air Force One for the G-7 summit in France Friday night.

“He likes testing missiles, but we never restricted short-range missiles. We’ll see what happens,” he added.


Trump’s remarks came just hours after North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles off its east coast into the Sea of Japan, the seventh such missile testing since Trump and Kim met in the Demilitarized Zone last month for discussions about restarting negotiations between Pyongyang and Washington.
