An incredible proposal was allegedly made by Donald Trump to Kim Jong Un two years ago.
According to a new BBC documentary, the then US president had proposed to the North Korean dictator to take him back to his homeland by Air Force One, after the second summit in Hanoi, Vietnam.
The two leaders had engaged in a war of words and mutual threats before the ice in the relationship melted to such an extent that they attended summits and Trump later declared his love for Kim. However, despite the interpersonal relationship they cultivated, no progress was made in the diplomatic field after the sinking of the summit in Hanoi, as Pyongyang insisted on the complete lifting of international sanctions on its nuclear program.

According to the BBC documentary “Trump Takes on the World”, Trump “surprised even the most experienced diplomats” with his proposal to transport Kim to North Korea by Air Force One. Had Kim accepted the offer, he would have boarded – possibly with people around him – the US presidential plane, which would have entered Pyongyang airspace, causing various security problems. “The president knew that Kim had arrived in Hanoi by train, via China, on a multi-day journey, and the president said, ‘I can take you home in two hours, if you want.’ “Kim refused,” said the former US Deputy National Security Adviser. Matthew Pottinger.
At the first summit with Trump in Singapore in 2018, Kim arrived on an Air China plane provided by Beijing to keep North Korea in his sphere of influence – which due to its geographical location keeps China away from the Chinese border. US troops stationed in South Korea. During the Singapore summit, Trump showed Kim the interior of the $ 1.5 million presidential limousine, known as “The Beast,” in a friendly gesture. But last month, Kim said the United States remained North Korea’s “biggest enemy,” adding that Washington’s policy toward Pyongyang “will never change,” regardless of who is in power. State-owned media in North Korea have not yet named him Joe Biden as President of the United States.
