Presidential lawyer and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday that Kim Jong Un “begged” to meet President Trump after he abruptly canceled the scheduled summit in Singapore, reports the Wall Street Journal.
Rudy was speaking at a conference in Tel Aviv, Israel when he commented on the President’s decision to ditch the meeting, saying the United States has the upper-hand after the North Koreans pleaded to reschedule the summit.
“They also said they were going to go to nuclear war with us, they were going to defeat us in a nuclear war,” said Giuliani. “We said we’re not going to have a summit under those circumstances.”
“Well, Kim Jong Un got back on his hands and knees and begged for it, which is exactly the position you want to put him in,” added the former mayor.
After months of back-and-forth negotiations, the scheduled summit will go ahead as planned with President Trump and Kim Jong Un slated to meet at 9am on June 12th in Singapore.
