USA: 'We want denuclearisation' - Trump touts Kim talks

United States, Washington DC
February 25, 2019 at 20:34 GMT +00:00 · Published

US President Donald Trump called once again for the denuclearisation of North Korea, ahead of his upcoming talks with its leader Kim Jong-un. Trump made the remarks in Washington DC on Monday.

"I think we can have a very good — a very good summit. I think we'll have a very tremendous summit. We want denuclearisation, and I think he'll have a country that will set a lot of records for speed in terms of an economy," said Trump.

The US leader also touched upon the issue of migrants who enter the country through its southern border, labeling them "rough" people.

"And I told Guatemala and I told Honduras, and I told El Salvador — three places where they send us tremendous numbers of people — and they're rough people. They're not sending us their finest. It doesn't make sense. Why would they send their finest?," he said.

"They're sending us some very — as I would sometimes say — rough hombres. These are rough, rough, tough people. Many criminal people," he added.

Trump and Jong-un are scheduled to meet in Hanoi on Wednesday and Thursday.
