Yes, Trump Talked About Human Rights With Kim Jong Un

Yesterday ahead of President Trump's meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, NBC News reported the issue of human rights would not be discussed at the summit as an issue.

But it turns out, the issue was discussed and will be again in the future.

"It was discussed.  It will be discussed more in the future -- human rights," Trump said. "It was discussed. It was discussed relatively briefly compared to denuclearization. Well, obviously, that’s where we started and where we ended.  But they will be doing things, and I think he wants to do things."

North Korea's human rights abuses are the worst in the world, as detailed by a 2014 United Nations investigation.

During the State of the Union, President Trump highlighted the story of Ji Seong-ho, who escaped from a North Korean labor camp.
