Trump Announces Second North Korean Summit
After meeting with North Korean officials in the Oval Office on Friday the White House has announced a second summit with North Korean.

The summit will take place at the end of February with the goal of denuclearizing North Korea.

According to Fox News:

A second summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will take place next month, the White House announced Friday.

President Trump met with a top North Korean official Friday afternoon in the Oval Office.

“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.

The Trump administration seems to be cautiously optimistic as they look for North Korea to take concrete steps to dismantle their nuclear capabilities.
