Trump believes no need for U.S.-South Korea war games at this time - White House

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump believes he has a good relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and there is "no reason at this time to be spending large amounts of money on joint U.S.-South Korea war games," the White House said on Wednesday.

The White House, in a statement sent on Twitter by Trump, said the U.S. president believes North Korea is under "tremendous pressure" from China but that Beijing also was supplying Pyongyang with "considerable aid," including fuel, fertiliser and commodities. "This is not helpful!" the statement said.
