It surprised the whole world, as Donald Trump as the first american president ever announced he would meet with North korea's dictator, Kim Jong-un.
After the meeting in Singapore in 2018 has Trump spoken of in laudatory terms about the north Korean head of state. They also began a longer exchange of personal letters. A total of 25 letters, as the two heads of state have written to each other.
the Letters are now published in a book by the acclaimed editor of the Washington Post Bob Woodward, who helped to trap Richard Nixon in the Watergate scandal.
