As a former senior management official who attended the meeting explained to CNN television, Trump did not ask his advisers if there would be any problems before making such an offer.
“Just did it for the friend”, said the former senior official, whom the broadcaster did not identify, referring to Trump’s good relationship with Kim.
CNN recalled that the British channel BBC was the first to report this story, which has now been confirmed.
The surprising offer came at the end of the Hanoi summit, at which no agreement was reached, after Kim insisted that all United States sanctions against his country be lifted.
The then President of the United States said that Kim offered to take some measures to dismantle his nuclear arsenal, but not enough to justify the end of the sanctions regime against the country.
The peculiar relationship between Trump and the North Korean leader, with whom he had several meetings, has been the subject of comments and analysis in the international press.
Both leaders came to publicly acknowledge that they were in harmony, although they never reached an agreement or rapprochement between the two countries.
