President Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un met in Hanoi, Vietnam on February 27, 2019 to discuss denuclearization of North Korea in exchange for lifting of economic sanctions.

The summit ended earlier than expected “with talks collapsing amid slightly differing accounts of why both leaders walked away without an agreement or a clear plan on how to keep the dialogue alive.  The fundamental disagreements rested on the trade-offs between the United States providing relief from sanctions and North Korea’s steps to dismantle its nuclear weapons program.”

In an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Trump called Kim “a real leader” and said “He likes me, I like him.”
