Trump-Kim Summit

Trump and Kim face more scrutiny in round two of nuclear talks

US president confident of 'tremendous summit' but breakthrough looks unlikely

HANOI -- U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are set for their second face-to-face meeting this week in the capital of Vietnam, with the world looking for progress toward the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula the two leaders agreed on last June.

"I think we’ll have a very tremendous summit," Trump said Monday morning at a White House business session with state governors, before he headed off to Vietnam. "We want denuclearization, and I think he’ll have a country that will set a lot of records for speed in terms of an economy," the president said of Kim.
