— Secretary of State Mike Pompeo shrugged off comments made by President Donald Trump's top Russia lawyer Rudy Giuliani, saying the former mayor doesn't speak for the administration on North Korea.

"I know Rudy. Rudy doesn't speak for the administration when it comes to this negotiation and this set of issues," Pompeo said when asked about Giuliani's comments by CNN's Pamela Brown.

Giuliani told a conference in Israel that Kim "got back on his hands and knees and begged for" the summit.
