A former U.S. special representative for North Korea policy, says he believes the regime is disappointed President Trump isn't expected to win the U.S. presidential election.
Joseph Yun said Kim Jong-un's relationship with President Trump is a highly unusual one, which included outreaches that were described as "love letters" from Trump.
But under a presumptive Biden administration, he says, it could change Washington's approach toward the regime.
Biden is known to prefer "principled diplomacy".
He was also highly critical of North Korea and called Kim a "thug" during one of the presidential debates.
Yun pointed out that these are different times for Kim,.. and a missile test might not be as high on his agenda as it was four years ago.
