Trump Will Hold Meeting with Kim Jong Un in May

A passenger reads a newspaper with headline of a planned summit meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump left at subway train in Seoul South Korea Saturday

In the aftermath of the Games, and following positive talks between North and South Korea, Trump announced that he has agreed to meet Kim.

Before boarding his Marine One helicopter for the rally, he told reporters: "I think North Korea is going to go very well, I think we will have tremendous success".

With North Korea and the United States agreeing to hold a historic summit on North Korea's nuclear program, South Korea is campaigning to rally regional stakeholders' support for what it sees as an ultimate opportunity to resolve the decadeslong security challenge.

Hopes for a breakthrough had risen on Thursday when Trump said he was ready to meet with Kim, who had invited Trump to what would be unprecedented talks between leaders of the two nations.

This time around, he said, the Trump government needed to put more effort into wooing Beijing, where many security officials believe US troops in South Korea pose more of a threat than North Korean nuclear missiles. "So that'd be great", Trump said.

Warren said she was worried the North would "take advantage" of Trump.
Pompeo and Mnuchin said the US would make no concessions and would keep the pressure on North Korea by maintaining economic sanctions and a strong US defence posture before the meeting.

In an interview with Sweden's TT newswire, Löfven pointed to his country's role as a "protecting power" for the US in North Korea, an arrangement which enables US diplomats to use Sweden's Pyongyang embassy as a base and conduit for communicating with the closed dictatorship.

"I'm 95 percent against what President Trump does in domestic and foreign policy", the one-time Democratic presidential candidate said. He mocked US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in October for "wasting his time" trying to talk to North Korea. Carter's unofficial four-day visit included a meeting with then-North Korean leader Kim Il Sung, the grandfather of current leader Kim Jong Un.

"Look, that's something that we're going to continue advocating for and pushing for".

Trump had previously said he was willing to meet Kim under the right circumstances but said the time was not right for such talks.

And now, Trump has formally agreed to a first face-to-face meeting with Kim. "President Moon of South Korea said without Donald Trump the Olympics would have been a total failure".

There was a silver lining to their less than triumphant debut - while they finished last, a Georgian and a Belarusian failed to complete the course at all, meaning they did worse than the North Koreans. He and his family have always sought legitimacy, and there's nothing more legitimizing than potentially sitting across a table from the world's most powerful man. And this thing could go badly enough that that's the only win anyone gets.

The outcome of the Trump-Kim Summit may well turn out to be a disappointing damp squib, the actual meeting remains uncertain, and the agenda may be subject to debate.

Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump.

"We can't let a madman with nuclear weapons let on the loose like that", Trump told Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte during an April phone call.

Trump earlier tweeted: "Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze". "It's a little hard to sell tickets when you think you're going to be nuked". "I believe they will honour that commitment!" It would mean an end to the nuclear crisis in #North Korea and the longstanding tensions between the volatile nation and the United States.
