The Trump administration is entering negotiations with North Korea not knowing exactly what to expect from leader Kim Jong Un because of his reclusive nature.

USA Today reported Tuesday that U.S. officials are flying blind when it comes to having any knowledge about Kim's negotiating style. President Donald Trump will meet face to face with Kim in the coming months to discuss North Korea's denuclearization.

"We have no data to evaluate him as a negotiator," former State Department official Robert Einhorn, who met with Kim's father Kim Jong Il during the Clinton administration, told USA Today.

"He likes to take the initiative. He likes to control the agenda and he likes to keep his adversaries off balance. Looked at from a professional point of view, what he has been doing has been quite impressive."

Trump's negotiating style is well-known — he even wrote a book about it in 1987, "The Art of the Deal." He is also very vocal on Twitter and has allowed the media to film some of his White House meetings, all of which provides a glimpse into how he conducts business with others.

The Trump administration will not budge on its demand North Korea abandon its nuclear weapons program, a point Trump himself underscored during a White House press conference Tuesday.

"I want to see denuclearization of North Korea," Trump said. "A lot of concessions have already been made. We've made no concessions. Despite the media saying we've made concessions, I haven't even discussed concessions."

In the meantime, North Korea has stopped its nuclear testing as it prepares for the historic summit.

The U.S. is eagerly awaiting a Friday meeting between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, which could determine the future of the negotiations.
