Trump Tweets North Korea Deal Is in the Making: ‘Time and Place to Be Determined’

President Trump tweeted an update tonight on a deal with North Korea he said is “in the making.”

“The deal with North Korea is very much in the making,” the President said, “and will be, if completed, a very good one for the World. Time and place to be determined.”

Earlier today, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that the meeting would not take place without “concrete action” on North Korea’s part.

However, later in the day, Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender tweeted a White House clarification that “the invitation has been extended and accepted, and that stands”:

Additionally, the Wall Street Journal reports tonight that yesterday, while speaking with South Korean officials about the offer to meet with Kim Jong Un, the President said, “OK, OK. Tell them I’ll do it.”
