On Saturday, President Trump invited President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte to the White House amid a “very friendly” phone call with the controversial leader.
Only a few days after the news, Trump revealed in a Monday interview with Bloomberg News that he would be willing to meet with another controversial figure: North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
The president explained that he would meet with the North Korean leader if he absolutely needed to.

The dictator has not met with any world leader since assuming leadership in 2011.
