I’d love to get US military out of South Korea: Trump

US President Donald Trump has said drawing down American troops in South Korea was not a part of negotiations with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, but stated that he would love to get American military out of the Korean peninsula.

In an interview broadcast on Wednesday, Trump said that a troop drawdown was “never discussed” during the historic summit with Kim in Singapore on Tuesday, apparently trying to calm the nerves of skeptics in America who blame the president of planning to give away too much to Kim in pursuit of a nuclear agreement.

“I am sure he would like that. It was never on the table. We sort of understood that was never on the table,” Trump said.

However, he reiterated his old desire to lower the American military presence in South Korea.

“I would love to get the military out as soon as we can because it costs a lot of money and a lot of money for us,” Trump said.
