NORTH KOREA/SANCTIONS: “Remember about a month ago, two months ago, they [North Korea] broke into the demilitarized zone and they said, ‘Oh, he’s going to attack.’ I said, ‘No, he’s not. Don’t worry about it.’ I got to know him very well. We have a good relationship. People said, ‘He has a good relationship with Kim Jong Un, that’s terrible.’ I said, ‘No, that’s good.’

But you remember it was going to be a nuclear war, and I got along with him. Then they said, ‘Trump made a terrible deal. He’s given so much to North Korea.’ What did I give? I was at like a semi debate with this idiot, a reporter. ‘He’s given a lot to North Korea.’ ‘What did I give?’ ‘I don’t know.’ Sanctions, sanctions. You took away. No, I didn’t. Actually, I increased the sanctions very substantially. What did you give? What did I give? Tell me. So after about four days they couldn’t ask because I gave nothing except I gave heart because I don’t want to see people killed on their side either. I don’t want to see people killed.”
