President Trump and Kim Jong Un hold second summit within a year

Local News

President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jon-un are holding their second summit together in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Last June, the two met in Singapore where they agreed to “work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsulsa.” Since then, the President has been critiqued that there have been no concrete steps toward this goal.

Ahead of their first face-to-face meeting in Vietnam Wednesday morning, President Trump said he was feeling “optimistic” about the sit-down with the North Korea leader and working toward a plan.

The summit between the two leaders could have serious implications on the world stage. To further explain, Dr. Greg Jackson, who is the assistant director of National Security Studies at Utah Valley University, joined us on Good Morning Utah.
