Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a former White House press secretary, says President Donald Trump told her to fly to North Korea to take "one for the team" after Kim Jong Un winked at her.

She made the claims in her upcoming memoir, according to The Guardian.

Sanders wrote that the wink happened at a summit between Trump and Kim in Singapore in 2018, "Kim nodded and appeared to wink at me."

"We made direct eye contact and Kim nodded and appeared to wink at me," she wrote. "I was stunned. I quickly looked down and continued taking notes. All I could think was, 'What just happened? Surely Kim Jong Un did not just mark me!?'"

The former press secretary said that later, in the presidential limousine, she told Trump and John Kelly.

"Kim Jong Un hit on you!" Trump said. "He did! He f*cking hit on you!"

"Sir, please stop," she told him.

"Well, Sarah, that settles it. You're going to North Korea and taking one for the team!" Trump told her. "Your husband and kids will miss you, but you'll be a hero to your country!"

She said the two men then "howled with laughter."
