On March 8, 2018, South Korea's National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong stepped outside the White House to convey a message his government received from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un of his "eagerness to meet" with Trump "as soon as possible" during a meeting in Pyongyang days before. President Trump was quick to congratulate himself for this breakthrough by telling an ABC reporter about a "major statement" regarding North Korea: "Hopefully, you will give me credit." He later tweeted, "Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze. Also, no missile testing by North Korea during this period of time. Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. Meeting being planned!"
