One more book on Donal Trump. The famous American investigative journalist Bob Woodward obtained the 25 letters which the American president and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un exchanged. Exchanges "never made public until now" according to the publishing house American Simon & Schuster.
The relationship between the two men has been at the heart of diplomacy between Washington and Pyongyang, fluctuating between insults and threats of war until a declaration of love from Donald Trump.
Kim Jong Un evokes relationship worthy of a "fantastic movie"
In their letters, "Kim describes the bond between the two leaders as worthy of a fantasy film as the leaders embark on an extraordinary diplomatic minuet," said the publisher on the Amazon page dedicated to the book. The book, titled "Rage" and due out September 15, is a sequel to "Fear, Trump in the White House" published in 2018.
Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un have met three times, the first time at a historic summit in June 2018 in Singapore. However, negotiations on North Korea's denuclearization have made little progress and have even stalled since the second summit fiasco in February 2019 in Hanoi.
However, this did not prevent the American president from regularly praising his relations with Kim Jong Un, going so far as to say that the two men had "fallen in love". “He wrote me beautiful letters, they are wonderful letters. We fell in love, ”the US president said to his supporters in September 2018.
Previous book called 'a scam' by Trump
Bob Woodward is known for his revelations in the Watergate affair, which led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon in 1974. The US President has repeatedly tried to discredit Bob Woodward's previous book, calling it a "joke" and of "scam".
Donald Trump, however, said in January that he spoke with the journalist for this new book. "I was interviewed by a very, very good reporter," the president told Fox News.
