North Korea Summit Back On

President Trump will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Singapore after all, he said Friday after talking with a North Korean envoy in the Oval Office. The envoy delivered a large personal letter from Kim, and Trump said he expects the summit to be "very successful." "I don't even want to use the term 'maximum pressure' anymore," Trump said, "because I don't want to use that term because we're getting along." The summit was planned, then scrapped, then stuck in limbo after hostile statements from both parties. 

Discussion Questions:

  • Why do you think this change occurred?
  • Do you think the summit will actually happen? Why or why not?
  • What do you think the goals of the summit are?
