There are reports out of North Korea that Donald Trump sent Kim Jong Un a letter offering to help the country fight coronavirus. The AP writes:
In a statement carried by the Korean Central News Agency, Kim’s sister and senior ruling party official, Kim Yo Jong, praised Trump for sending the letter at a time when “big difficulties and challenges lie ahead in the way of developing ties” between the countries.
In the letter, she said Trump explained his plan to “propel the relations between the two countries … and expressed his intent to render cooperation in the anti-epidemic work” in an apparent reference to the global coronavirus outbreak. She said her brother expressed his gratitude for Trump’s letter.
The New York Times reports that “The White House confirmed that Mr. Trump had sent Mr. Kim a letter but did not comment on its specifics.”
Interesting to note that North Korea didn’t immediately accept Trump’s offer. FYI, North Korea hasn’t reported any cases of the virus.
