It would appear North Korean leader Kim Jong-un subscribes to the saying that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach: According to a news report, Kim is interested in importing a Western burger chain to his country, as a show of goodwill to US President Donald Trump, an unapologetic lover of fast food.

The surprising news is part of an NBC News story based on a CIA report, and the commentary of three US officials.

Within a list of potential concessions by North Korea, is a surprising offer to open a Western hamburger franchise in Pyongyang as a gesture of good faith to Trump, whose diet famously consists of artery-clogging fast foods.

During his 2016 campaign, Trump also said he wanted to talk nukes with Kim over a burger.

The interesting finding was part of a larger CIA assessment declaring that North Korea does not, in fact, intend to denuclearize at all.

But in a country where poverty is pervasive, the question begs to be asked: Who would be able to buy a Big Mac in Pyongyang?

Were Kim's invitation to materialize, it would make sense that America's most iconic fast food chain, McDonald's, become the first US presence in the country.

In a 2013 exposé published in GQ magazine, American Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Adam Johnson offered riveting details of Kim's late father Kim Jong-il, who was a man of both low and high-brow food tastes.

Along with a $700,000 cognac habit, Kim would also send his personal chef to Beijing to fetch his guilty pleasure: McDonald's Big Macs.

Meanwhile in a tell-all book "Let Trump be Trump," former aides revealed the president's fast food habits could include two Big Macs, two Fillet-Of-Fish and a chocolate shake in one meal.
