President Trump confirmed Friday that the United States and North Korean officials have agreed on a time and place for the President’s historic meeting with Kim Jong Un; setting the stage for the first meeting between US and North Korean leaders in history.
The President was speaking with reporters before departing for Dallas, Texas when he was asked about the potential release of American hostages currently held by the communist regime.
“We’re doing very well with the hostages. We’re in constant contact with the leadership. We’re in constant contact with North Korea. We’ve actually worked out a time and place that will be announced shortly,” said Trump.
The President also confirmed that removing American troops from the Korean peninsula is “not on the table” in potential nuclear negotiations with the Hermit Kingdom.
“I have to tell you, at some point into the future, I’d like to save the money. We have 30,000 troops there. But I think a lot of great things will happen, but troops are not on the table,” he added.
