Trump, Kim to have private dinner Wednesday

U.S. & World

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump will begin his second summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un with a private dinner Wednesday.

The White House said Monday that the leaders’ two-day meeting in Hanoi will begin with an official greeting and a meal.

Trump will be joined by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney. Kim will also have two aides present and both men will have translators.

Trump and Kim will then hold a series of official meetings Thursday.

Trump is set to land in Vietnam late Tuesday and will have meetings with the host country’s president and prime minister Wednesday before seeing Kim.

Trump and Kim first met last June in Singapore, a summit that yielded powerful images but few concrete steps for North Korea’s denuclearization.
