Trump wanted to drop Kim Jong Un at home – with Airforce One


Trump wanted to drop Kim Jong Un at home – with Airforce One

The rapprochement with North Korea was one of the most important issues for former US President Donald Trump. In February 2019, Trump and ruler Kim Jong Un met in person for the second time.

But the summit in Vietnam’s capital Hanoi ended abruptly with Kim’s departure. The BBC documentary “Trump Takes On the World” now reveals a curious detail of the meeting.

Accordingly, Trump offered Kim to fly him home in his Air Force One presidential plane. “Trump knew that Kim had a multi-day trip by train through China ahead”, citing the BBC Trumps Asia consultant, Matthew Pottinger. “So he said to Kim, ‘I can get you home in two hours if you want.’ But Kim refused. ”

At their first meeting in Singapore in June 2018, Trump surprised his advisors with a spontaneous offer to Kim. This had demanded that the US Army stop their joint exercises with the South Korean military.

“At some point, Trump just said to Kim: ‘I’m calling off the war games,” “Trump’s then security advisor John Bolton told the BBC. The exercises are expensive, you don’t need them anyway and if it makes Kim happy: “I could hardly believe it,” says John Bolton.
