NORTH KOREA: “I think he’s [Kim Jong Un] got a chance to have one of the most successful countries — rapidly, too — on Earth. Incredible country, incredible location. You’re right between — if you think of it, you have, on one side, Russia and China, and on the other you have South Korea, and you’re surrounded by water and among the most beautiful shorelines in the world.
There is tremendous potential in North Korea, and I think he’s going to lead it to a very important thing, economically. I think it’s going to be an absolute economic power.”
-Donald Trump, “Remarks by President Trump in Press Conference | Hanoi, Vietnam,” whitehouse.gov, Feb. 28, 2019
