  • On a possible summit with North Korea: "If that happens, it'll be a great thing for North Korea. Most importantly, it would be a great thing for the world," Trump said, adding that he'd like denuclearization to be "done immediately, but physically, a phase-in may be a little bit necessary."

  • On former FBI Director James Comey: "I would actually say, how is he going to explain to his grandchildren all of the lies, the deceit, all of the problems he has caused this country," Trump said, adding: "I've done a great service for this country by getting rid of [Comey], by firing him."
