Central Intelligence Agency chief had great meeting with Kim

President Donald Trump said Thursday during an interview with "Fox & Friends" that preparations are going "very well" for his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

U.S. experts will be closely studying both Kim's words and body language at his historic summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday, officials said. One senior US official previously told ABC News that Trump had ruled out China and that it was highly unlikely Kim would agree to meet in the USA or Trump to meet in North Korea.

Then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was the last US official of equivalent rank to visit a North Korean leader when she met Kim's father in 2000. Both protagonists at inter-Korean summit on Friday, April 27, 2018 speak the same language and share the same ancestral roots and cultural background.

All of this is being used to update the United States government's classified file on Kim's behavior, motives, personality and leadership style to help Trump and his aides develop a strategy for dealing with Kim at the expected first-ever meeting of U.S. and North Korean leaders.

The tension-wracked peninsula has seen a dramatic diplomatic detente, with the nuclear-armed North last week announcing a moratorium on nuclear tests and long-range missile launches. That marks a dramatic shift from the high tensions of a year ago, when in defiance of world opinion and despite intensified economic sanctions, North Korea rapidly conducted weapons tests.

More than 1.45 billion people check Facebook at least once a day, a 13 percent increase from a year earlier. Employee head count was up almost 50 per cent from the same period past year , to more than 27,700.

Trump said it was "more than hello" and that they got along during their meeting, which lasted more than an hour. "And now they're saying, 'Wow, looks like this will be taken care of, '" he said. North Korea is already at the brink of being able to threaten the USA mainland with a nuclear-tipped missile, and views that capability as a safeguard against American aggression and a defense against regime change.

"We have a decision to be made". I'm not giving up much. "Let's see what happens", he said.

"It was very, very nasty, you know, with "Little Rocket Man" and with the buttons and my button's bigger", Trump said. "They've given up denuclearization, testing, research, [and] we're going to close different sites", Trump said.

Reports emerged last week that CIA Director Mike Pompeo had secretly met with Kim ahead of a planned summit between the young North Korean dictator and Trump himself, which is expected to occur in the next two months.

A White House official declined to confirm any specifics about the drive to better understand Kim, except to say: "There is a robust whole of government effort under way to prepare for the president's summit", which is targeted for late May or early June. USA intelligence analysts have spent years examining Kim's family history, speeches, photos and video, and they are now closely analyzing images and reports of his recent high-profile meetings with South Korean and Chinese officials.
