But the hard truth of the matter is that Trump and Kim, by necessity, must talk about North Korea's human rights record.

"I think I'll know pretty quickly whether or not, in my opinion, something positive will happen", Trump said.

He adds, "Moon Jae-in is a very good Trump handler and he understands the importance of flattery".

He admitted any progress "will always be spur of the moment" and that this is a "one-time shot" for Kim. "He can take that nation, with those great people, and truly make it great". "From what I can tell from (Trump's recent comments at the White House), they're not going to be asked to do much". "Just my touch. My feel".
