Trump Told Former White House Press Secretary To 'Take One For The Team' With Kim Jong-Un

Trump Told Former White House Press Secretary To 'Take One For The Team' With Kim Jong-Un

Sarah Huckabee Sanders stood in front of reporters as the White House Press Secretary for months. She was Donald Trump's voice when he wasn't there and she had to field an uncountable amount of tasks during her time.

But one alleged request was made of her that was so eyebrow raising, it's managed to wind up in her book.

Ms Sanders has penned a memoir about her stint at the White House and she reflected about the time she, along with the US president and his team, met with North Korea's leader Kim Jong-Un.

During the summit in 2018, Kim allegedly winked at Sanders.

In an excerpt from her memoir, published by the Guardian, Sanders wrote: "We made direct eye contact and Kim nodded and appeared to wink at me. I was stunned. I quickly looked down and continued taking notes.

"All I could think was, 'What just happened? Surely Kim Jong Un did not just mark me!?'"

The exchange allegedly prompted the President to ask something a little unusual of his White House Press Secretary.

"Well, Sarah, that settles it. You're going to North Korea and taking one for the team!" Trump told her, Sanders said. "Your husband and kids will miss you, but you'll be a hero to your country!"

The 2018 summit was one of three meetings between Kim and Trump that was designed to settle tensions between the two countries.
