President Donald Trump revealed new details on the upcoming summit between himself and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a cabinet meeting Wednesday.
Trump said the location of the summit would be announced within the next three days but added that it will not take place at the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea. Trump had previously indicated he thought the DMZ would be the proper place to hold the summit.
Numerous countries are being considered for the MEETING, but would Peace House/Freedom House, on the Border of North & South Korea, be a more Representative, Important and Lasting site than a third party country? Just asking!

The president cautioned, however, that the summit could still be scuttled.
“A lot of good things can happen, a lot of bad things can happen,” POTUS stated. “I believe that we have both sides want to negotiate a deal. I think it will be a very successful deal. I think we have a really good shot at making it successful but lots of things can happen.”
Trump’s remarks come after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo secured the release of three American hostages in North Korea after meeting with Kim Jong Un saying he appreciates the North Korean leaders gesture.
