Kim and Trump have met three times and exchanged letters and envoys on several occasions since 2018. In March, North Korea said Trump sent a personal letter to Kim, seeking to maintain good relations and offer cooperation in fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
Donald Trump also said that the South Korean and US reports had not been confirmed and he did not put much credence in them.

We don’t know if the reports are true.”
