The summit between Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong Un is back on scheduled for June 12, 2018.
The meeting was originally scheduled for the same day in Singapore and was cancelled not long after, but the White House announced it’s back on after Donald Trump received a hand written letter from Kim Jong Un.
President Donald Trump confirmed that his scheduled June 12 meeting with Kim Jong-un in Singapore would take place after all, after meeting with a North Korean official for over an hour at the White House on Friday.
“I think we would be making a big mistake if we didn’t have it,” Trump told reporters outside the White House after the meeting. “I think we’re going to have a relationship and it will start on June 12th.”
The president briefed reporters at length after meeting in the Oval Office with Kim Yong-chol, the highest-ranking official to visit the White House since a meeting with Bill Clinton in 2000.
