Sen. Sessions: 'Unlikely' A Trump-Kim Meeting Would Stop Nuclear Program

Sen. Sessions: 'Unlikely' A Trump-Kim Meeting Would Stop Nuclear Program

Sen. Jeff Sessions said Tuesday that "it's unlikely" that any good would result from a meeting between Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on stopping Pyongyang's nuclear program.

"You just have to be very careful about that," the Alabama Republican, who is advising Trump on foreign affairs, told Wolf Blitzer on CNN. "If he means actually opening up a possibility of a discussion to see if it's fruitful, that's one thing.

Trump, the presumptive presidential nominee, told Reuters Tuesday that he was willing to meet with Kim on the nuclear effort.

Sessions told Blitzer that no presidential candidate "in years … understands how to negotiate more effectively than Donald Trump.

"I do believe he will not be disadvantaged by Kim Jong-Il or anybody in North Korea," Sessions said, though Blitzer later told Sessions that he had referred to Kim's father, who died in 2011.

"It's unlikely that a good result would come out of it, but to attempt something like that, may be worth the effort," Sessions said.
