Trump says he is weighing options for North Korea meeting

Trump says he is weighing options for North Korea meeting”

US President Donald Trump said Thursday that three or four possible dates were being considered for his landmark summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Pompeo, Trump's pick to become secretary of state, came back from Pyongyang privately describing the young North Korean leader as "a smart guy who's doing his homework" for the meetings, according to one us official, who described Pompeo's personal view of Kim for the first time.

Trump reiterated his approval Thursday, commending North Korea because, "They've given up denuclearization, testing, research - we're going to close different sites". He wasn't supposed to meet with Kim Jong Un, but he did. Both protagonists at inter-Korean summit on Friday, April 27, 2018 speak the same language and share the same ancestral roots and cultural background.

President Trump on Thursday touted USA progress on resolving the crisis in the Korean Peninsula while slamming the Obama administration - particularly former Secretary of State John Kerry - for allowing the situation with North Korea to escalate.

Confirm Mike Pompeo to fill the void at State
It had appeared going in to that committee vote that there might not be enough votes for approval, but Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) says obstruction in the Senate has delayed Pompeo's confirmation.

The tension-racked peninsula has seen a dramatic diplomatic detente, with the nuclear-armed North last week announcing a moratorium on nuclear tests and long-range missile launches. That marks a dramatic shift from the high tensions of previous year, when in defiance of world opinion and despite intensified economic sanctions, North Korea rapidly conducted weapons tests.

Trump has said he expects to meet with Kim in May or June.

"Now they're saying, 'Wow, it looks like that will be taken care of.' I think we're doing very well".

The shooting occurred about 4-15 p.m. on Tuesday as officers were escorting a man from the Home Depot in northern Dallas. Armando Juarez was arrested - he is facing multiple counts of aggravated assault on a police officer".

"We have a decision to be made". "I never gave up anything", Trump repeated. "Let's see what happens", he said. "It was very, very secret - very, very quiet", Trump said in response to a question.

"But I can tell you right now they want to meet". "Everybody said this guy is going to get us into nuclear war".

Pompeo, who was confirmed as secretary of state by the Senate on Thursday, privately described Kim as "a smart guy who's doing his homework", according to a U.S. official. Pompeo, who won Senate confirmation Thursday to become secretary of state, was the most senior USA official to meet a North Korean leader since 2000. United States intelligence analysts have spent years examining Kim's family history, speeches, photos and video, and they are now closely analyzing images and reports of his recent high-profile meetings with South Korean and Chinese officials. When Moon Jae-In took office in May, he spoke often and strongly about a desire to talk with Kim. Moon will be looking to make some headway on the North's nuclear bombs in advance of the Trump-Kim summit.

Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall commented on the execution, saying that justice had been served in the case. "Tonight, Mr. Zeigler said Moody's long period on death row also meant taxpayers had to foot the bill for his room, board and medical expenses.

South Korea switched off its propaganda broadcasts on Monday to set a positive tone ahead of the summit, and South Korean residents living near the border said the North Korean broadcasts had also appeared to stop on Tuesday.
