CNN’s Jim Acosta said Thursday that President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un are “in some ways” very similar.


“But make no mistake, we’ve gone from the president referring to Kim Jong-un as little rocket man, and the president talking about fire and fury, to the potential for a very unlikely and incredible and, dare I say, reality TV-style meeting between two very different and in some ways, very similar leaders,” Acosta said.

Chung Eui-Yong, South Korea’s national security advisor, told reporters at the White House Thursday that President Trump is willing to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un by May at the latest. A meeting between the two leaders would be wholly unprecedented. (RELATED: Trump Agrees To Meet North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un Before May)
