President Trump wants more than just a nuclear agreement from North Korea.
Trump spent more than an hour during a Monday Cabinet meeting spinning on everything from how he "captured" ISIS to how he doesn't believe in part of the Constitution. But buried in those talks was another, lesser discussed implication: That Trump is working on a trade deal with North Korea.
After railing about health care at the end of the Monday remarks, Trump snuck in an unexpected mention of international trade deals. "These trade deals are incredible," Trump said. "Whether it’s North Korea, South Korea — probably, something is going to be happening with North Korea too," he continued, and then added some more vague claims: "There’s some very interesting information on North Korea. A lot of things are going on. And that's going to be a major rebuild at a certain point."
Trump's North Korea suggestions were obviously light on the details, and after mentioning the "rebuild," he moved on to talk South Korea and China. So it's unclear if a deal is really in the works, or if Trump was just stumbling through the region on his way to discuss South Korea.
