White House ‘still hopeful’ for summit with Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un
Washington is “still hopeful” about a planned summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday.
“We’re still hopeful that the meeting will take place and we’ll continue down that path, but at the same time we’ve been prepared that these could be tough negotiations,” Sanders said in an interview with Fox News.
“The president is ready if the meeting takes place. If it doesn’t, we’ll continue the maximum pressure campaign that’s been ongoing,” she added.
Sanders said the rogue regime’s rhetoric was “not something that is out of the ordinary in these types of operations.”
