WASHINGTON -- U.S. President Donald Trump revealed that he is in no rush to strike a nuclear deal with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un when the two leaders meet at their second summit this week in Hanoi, Vietnam.

"I just do not want testing. As long as there is no testing, we're happy," Trump told a gathering of governors at the White House on Sunday, the eve of his departure for the summit. The President also said he has a "special feeling" about the dictator, stating that the two have a "very, very good relationship."
