U.S.-North Korea Summit
CBJ — According to reports from the White House, U.S. President Donald Trump plans to depart early from his historic summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. A release by the White House says that the nuclear talks have moved “more quickly than expected.”
It’s still unclear as to how much progress was made.
Trump had been scheduled to fly back to Washington on Wednesday morning after spending Tuesday with the North Korean leader in Singapore. But on the eve of the summit, he altered his schedule, opting to return at about 8 p.m. on Tuesday after a full day of meetings with Kim — almost 15 hours earlier than previously anticipated.
“We are hopeful this summit will have set the conditions for future successful talks,” said U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
