President Trump said Tuesday that he doesn’t need any transcript or notes from his summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un because he has “one of the great memories of all time.”

When asked by a reporter if he had notes to verify details after the meeting in Singapore, Trump said he didn’t need to.

“I don’t have to verify because I have one of the great memories of all time,” Trump said.{mosads}

Last week, Trump said he didn’t have to prepare “very much” for the high-stakes summit because he felt the meeting would depend on “attitude.”

“I think I’m very well prepared,” Trump said during a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. “I don’t think I have to prepare very much. It’s about attitude. It’s about willingness to get things done.”

The president described his meeting with Kim on Tuesday as a “very heartfelt conversation.”

The two leaders agreed to sign an agreement committing the United States to unspecified “security guarantees” in exchange for denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula.

During the signing ceremony with Kim, Trump said the document was “pretty comprehensive” but failed to provide details.

“I think both sides are going to be impressed with the result,” Trump told reporters. “We’re going to take care of a very big and very dangerous problem for the world.”
