The second summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will begin with an official greeting and a meal the night before a series of official meetings.
Trump is set to arrive late Tuesday in Hanoi, Vietnam, and meet Wednesday with Vietnam’s president and prime minister ahead of seeing Kim. The North Korean leader arrived several hours before Trump.
Before leaving Washington, Trump downplayed expectations for big strides toward denuclearization by North Korea. He told a meeting of governors that denuclearization remains a goal and predicted that Kim’s country will gain economically.
Worries abound across world capitals about what Trump might be willing to give up in the name of a victory. Their first summit, last year in Singapore, yielded few concrete results.
