Bolton predicts summit between President Trump, Kim Jong Un as “October surprise”

NHK reported on Thursday on its interview with former National Security Advisor Bolton, in which he commented on the possibility of President Trump holding another meeting with DPRK leader Kim Jong Un ahead of the presidential election in November. The network quoted Bolton as saying that American political jargon includes the term “October surprise,” and that this year’s “surprise” could be another meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un. Bolton warned that another meeting with the DPRK leader could lead to a negative outcome for the United States because Washington may have no choice but to compromise. The former security advisor added that President Trump brought up the abduction issue at his meetings with Kim Jong Un and that the DPRK leader seemed to understand that the issue is important for Japan and Prime Minister Abe.
