In the middle of the ongoing war of words between US President Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong-Un, Trump, on Friday, has out of the blue insinuated he could be having a ‘good relationship’ with Kim.
Trump though refused to divulge any details and did not say if the two had spoken.
"I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong-Un," Trump told the Wall Street Journal in an interview.
"I have relationships with people. I think you people are surprised."
The paper reported that Trump did not give any inkling if the two bitter rivals have had established any contacts as of yet.
This comes at a time when the two countries are in a state of an altercation over North Korea's missile and nuclear programmes which could be used to target the United States and her allies.
Trump has repeatedly insulted the North Korean leader, describing him as mad and a "rocket man."
Asked if he had spoken to Kim, Trump said "I don't want to comment on it. I'm not saying I have or haven't. I just don't want to comment."
