US President Donald Trump claimed that he wouldn’t have allowed the CIA to hire Kim Jong Un’s half-brother as a source to spy on the North Korean leader, HuffPost reported.
The statements come after the reports that Kim Jon Nam was an informant for CIA. On Monday the Wall Street Journal reported that during his last visit to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he was killed, Kim Jong Nam met with a CIA agent. Talking to the reporters, Trump said that he was not aware of such allegations, but that certainly would not have happened “under my auspices.” The CIA has not yet commented on the matter.
Previously, Trump commented that he “received a beautiful letter from Kim Jong Un.”
“I think the relationship is very well, but I appreciated the letter,” he added, and noted that Kim “kept his word” on US-North Korea nuclear deal.
Yet, a few hours before that John Bolton, national security advisor, told the Wall Street Journal that North Korea “has not made a strategic decision to give up the pursuit of deliverable weapons, which is why we continue the maximum pressure campaign.”
