"[Kim] wasn't happy with the war games with the United States, and I've never liked it either".

In line with his position that USA allies should pay more for their own defense, Trump has complained that maintaining troops in South Korea is too expensive and said he would like to bring them home.

In his statements Friday, Trump said that South Korea and Japan need to get along, referring to a dispute between the two key Washington allies.

At their second meeting in Vietnam in February, Trump rejected Kim's demand for widespread sanctions relief in return for dismantling the North's main nuclear complex, a partial disarmament step.
