Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump tells Reuters that he would speak with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un about stopping that country’s nuclear program.

“I would speak to him, I would have no problem speaking to him,” Trump stated, responding “absolutely,” when asked if he would try to talk sense into Kim Jong Un.

“Trump also called for a renegotiation of the Paris climate accord, said he disapproved of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s actions in eastern Ukraine, and said he would seek to dismantle most of the U.S. Dodd-Frank financial regulations if he is elected president,” Reuters reports.
