Earlier this month, Donald Trump raised a lot of eyebrows when he indicated that under the right circumstances he ‘would be honored’ to meet North Korean President Kim Jong-Un, presumably to talk about how one might persuade the DPRK leader from using nuclear weapons to murder thousands of people. At the time, Trump told Bloomberg News that such a meeting couldn’t be ruled out if details were hashed out in advance that made both sides comfortable with the talks, via Bloomberg News:

“If it would be appropriate for me to meet with him, I would absolutely, I would be honored to do it,” Trump said Monday in an Oval Office interview with Bloomberg News. “If it’s under the, again, under the right circumstances. But I would do that.”
