President Trump said he would be “very comfortable” paying a visit to North Korea.
He made those remarks at a press conference Friday, as the G20 summit wrapped up in Japan.
He suggested crossing over the border would be no problem, and that he would be happy to visit the isolated nation.
President Trump also extended an invitation to meet the North Korean leader at Korea’s demilitarized zone, during his trip to Seoul Saturday.
“We won’t call it a summit, we’ll call it a handshake if it does happen. I don’t know that it will, but it could happen,” said President Trump. “But I know that I think he’d like to do it and I wouldn’t mind doing it at all. I’m gonna be, I’m literally visiting the DMZ.”
As of now, it is unclear if the north will take him up on his offer. If they do meet, President Trump would be the first sitting U.S. president in history to visit the DPRK
