(Newser) – President Trump said ahead of his summit with Kim Jong Un that he'd be able to size up his fellow world leader in a matter of minutes. Trump apparently liked what he saw, based on his comments to various news outlets after the fact. Here's a sample of his compliments about the man he once ridiculed as "rocket man":

  • Negotiator: "Great personality and very smart," Trump said of Kim. "Good combination. He’s a worthy negotiator. He’s negotiating on behalf of his people, a very worthy, very smart negotiator, absolutely." See the Financial Times.
  • Talented: "I learned that he’s a very talented man," said Trump. "I also learned that he loves his country very much." See Time.
