    Default North Korea's Kim Jong-un receives 'excellent' letter from Trump

    Awe isn't that nice. Cosying up with the most extreme dictators who use flame throwers as capital punishment.

    Vote for Boris, Trump approves. Had you read dystopian thriller 10-15 year ago where the future US president was a North Korea dictator loving grab em by the pussy supporter recommending a narcissistic liar for UK PM you'd have righty mocked the idea. As it happens this thriller would now be moved to the non-fiction section of your local now closed library.

    Sadiq Khan's letter I'm sure is in the post.


    North Korea leader Kim Jong-un has received a personal letter from US President Donald Trump, state media report.

    Mr Kim praised the letter as "excellent" and said he would "seriously contemplate the interesting content", the KCNA news agency says.


    He also praised Mr Trump's "extraordinary courage".


    Earlier this month, Mr Trump said a beautiful letter had been sent to him by the North Korean leader.


    It was not disclosed when or how Mr Trump's letter to Mr Kim had been delivered. The White House has not commented.

    Was Kim Jong-un's murdered half-brother a CIA mole?
    Talks between the US and North Korea stalled at a meeting in Vietnam between Mr Kim and Mr Trump in February.


    The letter is the first major development between the countries since then, the BBC's Laura Bicker reports from Seoul.


    The US has insisted North Korea give up its nuclear programme while Pyongyang has demanded sanctions relief.


    However in recent months Mr Trump has spoken warmly about Mr Kim.


    Earlier this month he told reporters that North Korea under Mr Kim's leadership had "tremendous potential".


    And in May during a visit to Japan Mr Trump described Mr Kim as a "very smart guy" and said he expected "a lot of good things" to come out of North Korea.

    source: North Korea's Kim Jong-un receives 'excellent' letter from Trump - BBC News
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Unfortunately it may be necessary to make deals with revolting people if that is the only way to put a stop to what they are doing.

    Why is it necessary to send love letters to Kim or deal with him in any way?
