'Your excellency, I cannot forget that moment when I held your hand': Kim Jong Un's letters to Trump reveal the dictator fawning over their 'precious' meetings, wishing the president a happy birthday, asking after Melania and calling Obama an 'a**hole'

Transcripts of Kim Jong Un's 'love' letters to Donald Trump have revealed the dictator fawning over their Singapore peace summit, wishing the president a happy birthday and calling Barack Obama an 'a**hole'.
'I cannot forget that moment of history when I firmly held Your Excellency's hand at that beautiful and sacred location as the whole world watched with great interest and hope to relive the honor of that day,' the despot wrote to Trump on December 25, 2018.
He was referring to their summit in Singapore 200 days earlier where the pair met in a setting 'reminiscent of a scene from a fantasy film', according to the dictator. 
A year after their historic meeting, Kim wrote: 'I extend my sincere and warm regards to Your Excellency on the occasion of your birthday. 
'My regards also to the First Lady and the rest of your family and all your people, and I wish everyone good health and happiness and hope that everyone's dream will become a beautiful reality.'
He also celebrated their joint trip to Vietnam on January 18, 2019, writing: 'Every minute we shared 103 days ago in Hanoi was also a moment of glory that remains a precious memory.' 
They are part of 27 letters obtained by Bob Woodward for his new book Rage where Kim repeatedly called Trump 'Your Excellency' and wrote that the 'deep and special friendship between us will work as a magical force'.

Trump name-checked Kim during more than 18 hours of recorded conversations with Woodward while dissing former President Barack Obama. 
'I think he's highly overrated. And I don't think he's a great speaker,' Trump said of the noted orator. He said Kim thought Obama was 'an a**hole.' 
Trump shared with Woodward that he found Kim 'far beyond smart.' He said Kim 'tells me everything' – including what the Post termed a 'graphic account' of having his uncle killed. 
Kim's uncle, Jang Song-thaek, was reportedly executed by a firing squad of anti-aircraft guns. A defector told CNN he was forced to watch the murder of his colleagues and blood was poured on his face. 
Two of the transcripts of the letters between the US and North Korean leaders, released by CNN, were among a slew of allegations in Woodward's new book that surfaced on Wednesday.

They included claims that Trump downplayed the severity of the coronavirus in public - even though he thought it was 'deadlier' than the common flu.

Trump admitted on Wednesday he didn't build up the virus in order not to cause panic in the US. 
'I'm a cheerleader for this country. I love this country. I don't want people to be frightened. I don't want to create panic,' he told reporters at the White House. 
'Certainly I'm not going to drive this country or the world into a frenzy. We want to show confidence. We want to show strength, we want to show strength as a nation. That's what I've done,' he added
'Leadership is about confidence. Confidence is confidence in our country,' he noted.
His admission comes after excerpts appeared from Bob Woodward's forthcoming book on the Trump administration, where, in recorded interviews, the president spoke privately about the deadly nature of the coronavirus even as he was publicly downplaying the severity of COVID-19.
