President Trump is expected to have a second meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un next month. Apparently, Trump met with a North Korean official in the Oval Office earlier today.
“President Donald J. Trump met with Kim Yong Chol for an hour and a half, to discuss denuclearization and a second summit, which will take place near the end of February. The President looks forward to meeting with Chairman Kim at a place to be announced at a later date,” the White House said in a statement.
The face-to-face came after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Kim Yong-chol, North Korea’s lead negotiator, in the nation’s capital early Friday morning to negotiate terms that could lead to a second nuclear summit between Trump and Pyongyang leader Kim Jong-un.
I know this has already happened once, but it’s still pretty huge.
Great news that there will be a second summit with President @realDonaldTrump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
President Trump deserves great credit for getting us to this point.https://t.co/K1MrzpVACx

There’s no official word on where this meeting will take place, but we’ll keep you posted! There are a few guesses here and there.
Sarah Sanders says Trump and Kim Jong Un will hold second summit in late Feb. at a location to be named. (Some speculation on Vietnam.)

No word from the WH yet on where the next @realDonaldTrump / Kim Jong Un summit at the end of February will take place. But I have heard Hanoi mentioned.
