Trump Walks Back To Say North Korea Summit Could Be Back On

Posted In: News Date:May 25th, 2018

Donald Trump tweeted on Friday his potential summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un could still go on as planned for mid-June in Singapore, according to The Guardian.

Trump also told reporters outside the White House his administration was still in talks with Pyongyang and the summit could occur on its originally scheduled date on June 12.

“We’ll see what happens,” Trump said.

“They very much want to do it. We’d like to do it,” he said.

One reporter queried if Pyongyang was playing games with the White House, to which Trump said, “Everybody plays games.”

On Thursday, North Korea said it was still willing to participate in the direct talks, calling the planned summit between the two countries "desperately necessary."
