A new documentary recording broadcast by the BBC revealed that former US President Donald Trump offered North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to board Air Force One to return to Pyongyang after the Hanoi summit that brought them together two years ago.
Kim and Trump first got involved in an argument and exchanged threats, before their relationship became overheated to hold peaks that attracted great attention and Trump expresses his love for Kim.
However, no progress was achieved, as negotiations between them reached a dead end after their meeting in Hanoi ended in a dispute over the issue of sanctions relief and concessions that Pyongyang would be willing to offer in return.
According to the BBC documentary entitled “Trump sweeps the world”, “the US president shocked even the most experienced diplomat” when he offered Kim to board the US presidential plane after the 2019 summit in Vietnam.
Had Kim accepted the offer, he would have boarded the plane with some close associates that would have entered North Korean airspace. This raises many question marks on the security front. But Kim turned down the offer.
“President Trump has offered Kim to get on his Air Force One,” Matthew Pottinger, chief expert on Asia at the Trump National Security Council, told the BBC.
He added, “The president learned that Kim arrived on a train journey that lasted for several days through China to Hanoi, and the president said,“ I can get you to your country within two hours if you want. Kim refused. ”
At Trump’s first summit in Singapore in 2018, Kim boarded a China Airlines flight at a time when Beijing was working hard to keep North Korea within its sphere of influence.
During the Singapore summit, Trump showed the North Korean leader the inside of the presidential car, a Cadillac valued at one and a half million dollars and known as the “monster”, in an expression of courtship between them.
But Kim said last month that the United States was the “greatest enemy” of his country that possesses nuclear weapons, adding that “Washington’s policy toward North Korea will never change” regardless of who is in power.
North Korean media has not yet mentioned the new US President Joe Biden by name, according to “Erm News”.
