Donald Trump names Vietnam for summit with Kim Jong

Communist-ruled Vietnam, which has good relations with both the United States and North Korea, had been widely touted as the most likely venue for the meeting.

"If I had not been elected President of the United States, we would right now, in my opinion, be in a major war with North Korea", he said as some of the members of congress laughed while other expressed their clear frustrations with the statement.

President Donald Trump will hold a two-day summit with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un Feb. 27-28 in Vietnam to try to convince him to give up his nuclear weapons program.

Since the meeting, President Trump claims the country is no longer a nuclear threat, though independent analysis have questioned that assessment, according to USA Today.

He throws the child above his head, claps, and catches the child again as a group of people sit on the ground swaying to music. The footage was uploaded by Kuala Lumpur resident Zayl Chia Abdulla, who said in the post he witnessed the event personally.

"As part of a bold new diplomacy, we continue our historic push for peace on the Korean peninsula", Trump said in his State of the Union address in Washington on Tuesday. Pyongyang also dismantled one of its test sites and made a significant effort to improve its relations with South Korea, despite the continued presence of 30,000 USA troops there.

Trump went on to confirm the date and location for his next summit with Kim Jong Un.

Trump confirmed the talks will take place after North Korea released American hostages, halted nuclear testing and did not launch a missile in over 15 months.

Just hours before the president's second annual State of the Union address was set to begin, Politico reported that he'd told a group of television anchors that the two-day summit would be held in Vietnam on February 27 and 28.
