North Korea Summit MGN Online

WASHINGTON (AP) – A White House team is heading to Singapore this weekend to work on logistics for President Donald Trump’s planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (kim jawng oon).

Trump cast doubt Tuesday on the future of the June 12 meeting. But a White House spokesman, Raj Shah, says the U.S. “always sends advance teams ahead of any scheduled presidential visit.”
