In the interest of improving foreign relations, and advancing negotiations regarding North Korea''s speculated nuclear agenda, United States President Donald Trump and North Korea Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un agreed to try a time-tested tension-easing technique, and imagine each other naked.
Trump admitted to entering into the experiment as a skeptic. "I knew he was in for a treat," said Trump, "but I wasn't sure how I'd feel about imagining little Kim Jong-un in his birthday suit."
Trump was pleasantly surprised, however. He stated that he developed a warm, almost protective feeling toward Kim Jong-un when picturing him naked. "And I appreciated that he was simultaneously picturing me undressed," said Trump. "That mutual vulnerability was immensely powerful. It made really want the best for both of us, and for our countries."
Trump added that in order to sustain that feeling of positive regard toward Kim Jong-un, he has gotten into the habit of frequently imagining the North Korean dictator naked. Kim Jong-un is reportedly doing the same of Trump.
But was the experiment actually effective in easing tensions between the two world leaders?
Trump claims that things truly have improved. "There's still tension," he acknowledged. "But it's a healthy, dynamic sort of tension, which is actually rather pleasant. It makes me hopeful that our continuing negotiations will come to a mutually satisfying conclusion and Kim Jong-un will abandon his nuclear aims."
With a philosophical shrug, he added, "And if not, at least I've managed to distract him for a while."
