Trump says North Korea has ‘tremendous potential’ to become ‘absolute economic power’
North Korea could be “one of the most successful countries on Earth” once Pyongyang “gets rid of the nukes,” Trump said speaking about possible denuclearization options. He made the statement after his second summit with Kim (this time in Vietnam) unexpectedly wrapped up after two hours.
Nevertheless, the US president commended North Korea as an “incredible country” with an “incredible location” emphasizing its proximity to China, Russia, and South Korea, as well as its access to water. The US leader also gave an optimistic forecast about the country’s economic perspective.
There is tremendous potential in North Korea and I think he [Kim] is going to lead it to a very important thing economically. I think it’s going to be an absolute economic power.
