Trump leaves open possibility of June 12 summit with North Korea
US President Donald Trump says it is still possible a planned summit with North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un takes place on June 12 as originally scheduled.
“We’re going to see what happens,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Friday, one day after he canceled the highly anticipated meeting.
"It could even be the 12th," he said referring to the original June 12 date set for the summit in Singapore.
"We're talking to them now," Trump said of the North Koreans. "They very much want to do it. We'd like to do it. We'll see what happens."
Earlier, Trump welcomed Pyongyang's response to his decision to call off the high-stakes summit.
