President Trump announced the date for his summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un Thursday morning.
The highly anticipated meeting between Kim Jong Un and myself will take place in Singapore on June 12th. We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 10, 2018
The summit will be held in Singapore after a meeting in the DMZ between North and South Korea was considered, but ultimately rejected.
Trump's announcement comes just hours after meeting three freed American hostages at Joint Base Andrews early in the morning.
