US President Donald Trump says he won't meet Kim Jong-un again until after the November elections. Before he took off for a Tuesday night rally, he told reporters, quote. It'll be after the midterms, I just can't leave now. Trump had revealed plans were being made for a second summit earlier in the day.
He was also upbeat on progress in nuclear talks so far.>> You have no nuclear tests, you have no rockets, and we have a very good relationship with Chairman Kim, which is very important. I like him, he likes me, the relationship is good.>> On Tuesday Trump said Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, had very good talks with Kim over the weekend during a trip to Pyongyang.
And Trump says three or four locations were in the running for Kim's next meeting. He says he thinks North Korea's leader would like Mar-a-Lago, but he wasn't clear as to whether a venue in the US was really on the cards.>> Well, I don't want to embarrass anybody by asking.
I think eventually were gonna have lots of meetings on US soil and on their soil, by the way. That's a two way street, on their soil also.>> Pompeo echoed Trump's positive outlook during a Tuesday afternoon visit to the White House.>> And while there's still a long way to go and much work to do, we can now see a path to where we'll achieve the ultimate goal.
Which is the full or final verified denuclearization of North Korea.>> After Pompeo met Kim on Sunday, he revealed the supreme leader was ready to allow international inspectors into two key weapons testing sites, as soon as the two sides agreed on the process. However, experts have questioned what Pompeo achieved on his fourth visit to Pyongyang in less than a year.
They say the North Korean leader appears to be simply repacking and dragging out past pledges.
