Trump Announces Second North Korea Summit in State of the Union

President Trump will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for a second time: a two-day summit in Vietnam at month’s end. The announcement was perhaps the most significant national-security development in his 82-minute State of the Union speech. Trump touted his relationship with Kim. “If I had not been elected President of the United States, we would right now, in my opinion, be in a major war with North Korea with potentially millions of people killed,” he said. There is no evidence for this assertion, which the president has made before, and which drew an astonished expression from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, sitting behind his left shoulder.
