Just last summer, he threatened "fire and fury" if Pyongyang were to pose any sort of threat to the U.S. He's also called Kim by several names, such as "little rocket man", and "maniac".
"The difference is I'm president, other people aren't", he said. "I could give you 20 examples". He once described his relationship with Texas Sen.
"Y$3 ou see that a lot with me and then all of a sudden somebody's my best friend", Trump said. You give me 30. "I'm a very flexible person".

"I don't want to comment on it", Trump told The Wall Street Journal after he was asked directly if he had spoken with Kim.
"The United States blabbers on about religious freedom and speaks blasphemously of our republic's highest dignity", the North Korean council said, according to KCNA.
The report concluded that these activities underscore North Korea's continued efforts to maintain the Punggye-ri site's potential for future nuclear testing. On Wednesday, Trump said he didn't expect a war in a White House news conference, and indicated he was pleased by direct talks between Pyongyang and Seoul.
Trump claimed credit Wednesday for the inter-Korean dialogue, saying North Korea was feeling the pressure of a USA -led campaign of sanctions over its nuclear weapons and missile development.
North Korea's Punngye-ri nuclear test site has recently witnessed increased activities, which could indicate that the reclusive nation may be preparing for yet another missile test. It may be that North Korea is trying to drive a wedge between South Korea and the USA, and exploit South Korean president Moon Jae-in's desire for diplomacy.
