    U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday that it was possible for him to hold a third meeting with the top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), Kim Jong Un.

According to the full transcript provided by the White House, when asked by reporters if he plans to meet Kim for a third summit, Trump said that "it could happen. A third summit could happen.

  • How North Korea got away with the assassination of Kim Jong-nam (Rocket Man's Half-Brother)

    The Guardian (U.K.) ^ | 1 April 2019 | Hannah Ellis-Petersen in Kuala Lumpur and Benjamin Haas
    (Kim Jong-Un's Assassinated Half-Brother) The morning of 13 February 2017 was like any other at Kuala Lumpur’s hectic international airport terminal so it would have been easy to miss a lone North Korean man, clad in a blue polo shirt and jeans, heading to check into his flight to Macau. As he ambled past a column, a backpack slung over one shoulder, a woman approached him and wiped an oily substance on his face before disappearing, her unusual actions caught on CCTV. Moments later, another woman came from behind and covered his eyes with her hands. She then slid...

    orth Korea had the more accurate take on what happened at the summit with President Donald Trump before talks failed, according to an official with the U.S. State Department. The president claimed Thursday that he had walked away from negotiations in Hanoi after Kim Jong Un demanded that all sanctions against the nation be lifted. “Basically, they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety, and we couldn’t do that,” Trump said. “We had to walk away from that.” But Pyongyang representatives called a late night news conference later that day to correct Trump’s statements, saying that Kim wanted only economic...

Trump and Kim were scheduled to have lunch but did not enter the dining room where reporters were assembled.

    HANOI - The White House barred reporters from Reuters, the Associated Press and Bloomberg from covering a dinner between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Wednesday after two of them asked Trump questions during his initial interactions with Kim. The three wire services are part of the White House press pool that covers U.S. presidents wherever they go. Reporters in the pool regularly shout out questions to leaders and on Wednesday they asked Trump about the summit and the testimony in Congress of his former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen, in two separate opportunities known...

    I predict that Mueller's report will come out while President Trump is meeting in Vietnam with Kim Jong-Un to a) Embarrass him and b) deflect from the important Summit and to not give him positive press (which they never do). By the way, I'm lovin' the fact that Lin Wood is Nic Sandmann's lawyer and that they're suing WaPo for $250 million. I hope he gets a huge settlement!

    SEOUL (NYTIMES) - A senior American negotiator arrived in North Korea on Wednesday (Feb 6) to sort out crucial details for a nuclear summit meeting in Vietnam between United States President Donald Trump and the North's leader, Kim Jong Un, with only three weeks to go before the talks take place. Mr Stephen Biegun, the Trump administration's special representative for North Korea, arrived in Pyongyang, the North's capital, around the time that Mr Trump announced in his State of the Union address that he and Mr Kim would meet for a second time on Feb 27-28 in Vietnam.

    Orange County, a traditionally conservative enclave in Southern California turned all blue after Democrats found tens of thousands of votes post election day. Just two years ago in 2016, only 2 Congressional districts in Orange County voted blue–now just two years later every single district voted blue.

    The media loves firsts. It's obsessively promoting the first gay governor. The first two Muslim anti-Semitic women in the House, one of whom is accused of marrying her brother (the media obviously isn't mentioning that part), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest elected dimwit. It's oddly uninterested in the first Korean-American woman in the House. Well, not so oddly. Rep. Young Kim is a Republican. Kim, 55, would be the first Korean-American woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives if she defeats her Democratic opponent Gil Cisneros for the open seat in California’s 39th Congressional District in Tuesday’s election....

    South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Thursday that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will "soon" visit Seoul as part of a series of high-profile diplomatic efforts aimed at ridding North Korea of its nuclear weapons.

    President Donald Trump said Tuesday he was pleased with ongoing discussions with North Korea, adding he would like a future summit with the country's leader Kim Jong Un at his Mar-a-Lago estate or on North Korean territory. Trump's comments come after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Kim in Pyongyang to further denuclearization efforts on the Korean Peninsula. Following the meeting, Kim agreed to allow outside nuclear inspectors into the Punggye-ri nuclear testing site to prove that it had been irrevocably dismantled, but the North Korean leader did not make any promises to fully denuclearize the country without significant...

    Vice President Mike Pence had a message for former President Barack Obama at the Values Voter Summit Saturday: the American economy is booming because the Trump administration is rolling back Obama administration policies. “It’s been two years of promises made and promises kept, and we’re just getting started,” Pence told the conference audience in Washington, DC. He cited more than four million jobs created since President Donald Trump took office, record low black and Hispanic unemployment, wages rising at the fastest pace in a decade, and the highest middle class income in recorded history. Pence said this did not just...

    North Korean leader Kim Jong-un plans to visit Seoul in December, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency quoted the chief of South Korean conglomerate CJ Group Sohn Kyung- shik as saying. Kyung-shik was a member of the South Korean delegation that accompanied President Moon Jae-in this week for his three-day trip to North Korea. He joined the delegation as the head of the Korea Employers Federation, a major business lobby. During a joint press conference after the third summit, Kim said he made a promise to visit Seoul “in the near future.” Moon later added that what Kim meant by the...

    PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — South Korean President Moon Jae-in arrived in North Korea on Tuesday for his third and possibly most challenging summit yet with leader Kim Jong Un in which he hopes to break an impasse in talks with the United States over the North's denuclearization and breathe energy into his own efforts to expand and improve relations between the Koreas. In what are by now familiar images of the two Korean leaders hugging and exchanging warm smiles, Kim greeted Moon at Pyongyang's airport. They walked together past cheering crowds and a military honor guard, and then drove...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump received a letter from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un asking for a second meeting and the White House is already looking at scheduling one, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on Monday. The two leaders have been discussing North Korea’s nuclear program since their unprecedented June 12 summit which has been criticized for being short on concrete details about how and whether Kim is willing to give up on a nuclear weapons program that threatens the United States. Trump told reporters on Friday that a personal letter from Kim was on the...

    President Donald Trump sent his thanks to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Sunday after the country made changes to its military parade in Pyongyang. North Korea celebrated its 70-year anniversary on Sunday with a show of its military strength but strayed from the traditional display of the country’s intercontinental missiles. The parade instead featured floats and flowers as Kim chose to focus on building economic power. Trump, who met with Kim for a denuclearization summit in Singapore in June, tweeted his gratitude to the North Korean dictator on Sunday. “This is a big and very positive statement from...
