Trump Kim Summit

Eight months after their historic summit in Singapore, and less than two years after exchanging inflammatory threats and barbs, they’ve met again. 

Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump shook hands and had dinner together in Vietnam. They will continue, this Thursday, negotiations aimed at the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. Both leaders expressed aspirations for a successful summit.
