Last year it carried out by far its most powerful nuclear test to date and launched missiles capable of reaching the USA mainland, sending tensions soaring to a level unseen in years as a newly-elected Trump traded threats of war and colorful personal insults with Kim, with Trump dubbed a "dotard" and Kim "Little Rocket Man". The president appeared exhausted and subdued, and he demeaned the press corps, calling some US news outlets "unbelievably dishonest" and "fake news" before aides pulled him away to start his journey to Southeast Asia.

During a press conference this week, Trump also suggested that he could invite Kim to the US if the June 12 summit goes well. "It's about attitude", Trump said of the summit before meeting Thursday with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
