Donald Trump: ‘I Can’t Answer’ If Kim Jong Un Is Mentally Unstable

Donald Trump said he can’t answer if Kim Jong Un is “mentally unstable.”

“As far as North Korea, we are in very good shape,” Trump said. “We are building our military rapidly. We have been doing a lot of work. We are going to see what happens. I can’t answer your question on stability. I hope it’s a positive one, not a negative one.”

Trump said that when he met with Chinese President Xi Jinping he told him he would “make a much better deal on trade” if he dealt with “the menace” of North Korea.
