WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday again said he was in no rush to reach a deal with North Korea over its nuclear weapons programs, days after saying he had received a letter from Pyongyang’s leader Kim Jong Un.

Trump, asked about North Korea’s sanctions violations in an interview with Fox News, said “everybody tries to break sanctions,” adding that the sanctions are hurting North Korea and that the United States is continuing to impose them.
