‘Relationship very good’: Donald Trump says talks with Kim Jong Un went well, despite failed summit
A day after returning to Washington, Trump said on Twitter on Friday that the two had “very substantive negotiations.” He added, “We know what they want and they know what we must have.”
“Relationship very good, let’s see what happens!” Trump wrote.
Trump did not address the pushback from North Korea, which disputed his account of why the summit fell apart.

Trump had told reporters the summit failed because Kim insisted that all the sanctions on Pyongyang be lifted without the North committing to eliminate its nuclear arsenal.
North Korea disputed that, insisting it asked only for partial sanctions relief in exchange for closing its main nuclear complex.
