Trump Says Second Summit With North Korea Will Happen Early 2019
Trump told reporters the meeting could happen in January or February.
President Donald Trump is narrowing down possible dates and locations for his second summit with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un.
Trump told reporters after the G20 Summit the meeting will likely take place early next year.
"We’re going to do one fairly — you know, into January, February, I think. We’re getting along very well. We have a good relationship," said Trump.
Trump's comments came on the heels of his meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. While speaking to reporters after the G20 Summit, Moon said Trump asked him to relay a message to Kim if he visits South Korea soon.
Moon said Trump is ready to grant Kim what he wants if he "fulfill[s] the rest of his agreements."
That's likely referring to the vaguely-worded pledge to denuclearize North Korea that Trump and Kim signed in June. But those negotiations stalled over the issue of sanctions. North Korea wanted those sanctions lifted as a goodwill gesture, but the Trump administration said it would only lift them when North Korea completely denuclearizes.
Now, it appears that the two leader are on better terms. Trump said they've discussed three locations for the meeting, but haven't finalized anything.
