This Tuesday, President Donald Trump touched down in South Korea, where during a meeting, he revealed his optimistic standpoint about his chances to stop the rogue nation North Korea and it’s war-crazed dictator Kim Jong Un from deploying a nuclear missile capable of reaching America, or it’s allies.
“I think we’re going to have lots of good answers for you over a period of time, and ultimately it will all work out,” said the commander-in-chief, adding, “It always works out. It has to work out!”
And despite Kim Jong Un not having carried out any ballistic missile tests since this September, the concerns are still high at the Pentagon that he might conduct a test launch while Trump is just near the corner, with the goal of prompting a show of force.
On the other hand, the U.S. president’s touchdown in South Korea is his second stop on his 13-day trip, right after he left Japan. His meetings with the Asian leaders have for a goal to bring better trade deals to the U.S., bring investors, as well as work on a solution for the ever-growing security and nuclear threat of North Korea.
During his meeting in South Korea, the POTUS shook hands with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha, said his goodbye to first lady Melania, and boarded a military helicopter with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
“I had a choice of having a beautiful, very fancy lunch, and I said ‘No, I want to eat with the troops.’ And we ate with the troops,” said the president proudly, adding, “And it was good eating. It was good eating. And I tell you, they’ve done a terrific job. Very impressive.”
President Trump is later scheduled to sit down with Moon at the Blue House, which is the nation’s presidential mansion, and hold bilateral talks in advance of a joint press conference later this Tuesday.
