SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Bill Richardson — former governor of New Mexico and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations — has negotiated with North Korea before. While he thinks any talks with Kim Jong-un's regime can be productive, Richardson says President Donald Trump's meeting with the North Korean leader next month should be looked at as a first step.

His first piece of advice to the president? Pull Kim Jong-un aside informally and hammer out what they want the summit to accomplish.
