President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania got interesting messages of support as they were earlier reported to have contracted Covid-19.
Former president Barack Obama extended felicitations to his White House successor Donald Trump and his wife Melania, setting aside the bitter election battle wishing them a rapid recovery from Covid-19, as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un sent a message of sympathy to President Donald Trump, hoping he quickly recovers from the coronavirus.
Obama said “Michelle and I are hopeful that they and others that have been affected by Covid-19 around the country are getting the care that they need, that they are going to be on the path to a speedy recovery. We’re all Americans and we’re all human beings, and we want to make sure everybody is healthy.”
North Korean state media KCNA reported Kim offered his sympathy and “warm greetings” to Trump and his wife. “He sincerely hoped that they would recover as soon as possible.” The Nokor leader also said they will surely overcome it.
Trump and Kim developed an unprecedented relationship, staging the first meetings between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader, and Trump once declared that they “fell in love” after exchanging letters.
Efforts to press North Korea to give up its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of sanctions stalled after those meeting failed to lead to a de-nuclearization deal, but the two leaders have continued to trade messages.
