President Trump tweeted late Friday that he will meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un for a second time later this month, in Hanoi, Vietnam.
Trump and Kim held their first face-to-face meeting in Singapore last June.
Trump said officials with his administration had completed discussions with North Korean officials and set the meeting for Feb. 27-28.
My representatives have just left North Korea after a very productive meeting and an agreed upon time and date for the second Summit with Kim Jong Un. It will take place in Hanoi, Vietnam, on February 27 & 28. I look forward to seeing Chairman Kim & advancing the cause of peace!

Trump predicted that North Korea will become “a great Economic Powerhouse,” adding that the North Korean leader “may surprise some, but he won’t surprise me because I have gotten to know him & fully understand how capable he is. North Korea will become a different kind of Rocket – an Economic one!”
