CNN host Erin Burnett is known for bashing Donald Trump every day on her show. That’s why it came as a huge surprise this week when she admitted that Trump will indeed be a great president if he could solve tensions with North Korea, though it appeared to physically pain her to say it.
“There is no way around that,” Burnett said mournfully, according to The Daily Caller. “Just an extraordinarily evening and of course opening the door to the big question–if President Trump can truly solve this problem. That would be going down as a great president, and there is no way around that. That is the reality here. Thank you all.”
Burnett said this after it was announced that Trump is willing to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un Thursday.
“Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze. Also, no missile testing by North Korea during this period of time. Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. Meeting being planned!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The White House confirmed that Trump has indeed accepted North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un’s dramatic offer to meet.
“President Trump greatly appreciates the nice words of the South Korean delegation and President Moon. He will accept the invitation to meet with Kim Jong Un at a place and time to be determined,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. “We look forward to the denuclearization of North Korea. In the meantime, all sanctions and maximum pressure must remain.”
