President Trump told the Wall Street Journal Thursday that he "probably" has a "very good relationship with Kim Jong-un," the North Korean leader who has called him and "dotard" and whom he has repeatedly called "Little Rocket Man"

“I have relationships with people. I think you people are surprised," he said in the interview. Trump would not say whether he had spoken with Kim.

Trump also said Mexico could "indirectly" pay for a border wall because the U.S. would use "a small percentage" of the money gained from renegotiating NAFTA for the wall: "Guess what? Mexico’s paying.”
