The dear North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said it was not easy to get to Singapore for the summit with U.S. President Donald Trump.

His comments, as per interpretation) reads as follows:

CHAIRMAN KIM:  (As interpreted.)  Well, it was not easy to get here.  The past worked as fetters on our limbs, and the old prejudices and practices worked as obstacles on our way forward.  But we overcame all of them, and we are here today.

Talking like a propagandist that he is, Kim apparently spoke in the style of centuries-old Korean proverbs that talk about wisdom in a bid to attract Trump’s sympathy.

In reply to Kim’s statement, Trump said: Its true.
