Trump speaks well of his relationship with N. Korean dictator

"I have relationships with people", Trump continued.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un speaks during the Second Plenum of the 7th Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) at the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun, in this undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) in Pyongyang October 8, 2017. "I'm not saying I have or I haven't". Kim called the 71-year-old American president "the mentally deranged US dotard".

Trump had said on Saturday that he was open to talking to Kim.

President Donald Trump, who's said North Korea won't be allowed to develop a nuclear missile capable of hitting the US, also said Thursday that he expects the crisis with Kim's regime to be resolved without war.

White House spokespeople didn't immediately respond to questions about whether Trump and Kim had spoken.

In addition, homelessness among families with children declined 14.2 percent across the state since 2016. The awards consider the cost of funding current programs, how well projects perform and housing costs.

South Korea and the United States are technically still at war with the North after the 1950-53 Korean War ended with a truce, not a peace treaty.

Kim has warned the United States that he intends to build a nuclear arsenal capable of hitting the United States, prompting threats of military action by Washington.

However, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un already said in his New Year message that, despite his desire to improve ties with South Korea, Pyongyang has no intention of suspending its nuclear programme and will continue to develop its weapons to prevent Washington from attacking its territory.

It remains unclear whether these disclosures by people close to the internal deliberations were simply psychological warfare aimed at sowing strategy-changing fear within the North Korean leadership or reflected Trump's serious intent.However, the administration's debate on whether to put greater emphasis on strike plans has slowed because of the North-South contacts and February's Winter Olympics to be hosted by South Korea. North Korea continues to challenge the US on the world stage.
