American Journalist, Bob Woodward’s latest Donald Trump book, which is trending after excerpts detailed Trump's candid thoughts about the true threat of the COVID-19 pandemic, has now revealed that the US president shared about 27 letters between himself and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
Trump, 74, is a 'friend' of the 36 year old authoritarian leader and has previously revealed that he and Kim have shared 'love letters' before.
According to CNN, Woodward, saw some of the letters while working on his book Rage, set for release next week, and he recorded transcripts into his audio recorder.
The Trump-Kim letters, two of which Trump has already tweeted, one from him and one from Kim — further detail what the North Korean leader reportedly described as “a special friendship” that has grown since they surprisingly held a historic face-to-face meeting in Singapore in June 2018, the first of it's kind between a US and North Korean leader.
They now met a second time on Feb. 28, 2019, in Vietnam, and a third time inside the Korean Demilitarized Zone between North Korea and South Korea on June 30 later that year. At their third meeting, Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to step foot into North Korea when he took 20 steps into the country.
In some of the letters Kim referred to Trump as "Your Excellency." and the letters give an insight into the weird unorthodox relationship both leaders shared.
According to CNN, who obtained audio excerpts of the letters from Woodward, Kim wrote a letter to Trump reminiscing about their Singapore meeting on Christmas night in 2018 .
Kim wrote: "Even now I cannot forget that moment of history when I firmly held Your Excellency's hand at the beautiful and sacred location as the whole world watched with great interest and hope to relive the honor of that day."
"As we enter the new year the whole world will certainly once again come to see, not so far in the future, another historic meeting between myself and Your Excellency reminiscent of a scene from a fantasy film," Kim continued.
