Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un traded barbs during Trump's first year in office amid heightened tensions between the two nations. In recent months, however, relations have improved.

Trump is expected to meet with Kim in the coming months, and North Korea has said it's willing to discuss denuclearization as part of diplomatic talks.
