Trump Announces Summit Meeting With Kim Jong-un Is Back On

By Peter Baker

WASHINGTON — President Trump announced Friday that the summit meeting he had canceled with North Korea’s leader would be held this month after all, the latest head-spinning twist in a nuclear-edged diplomatic drama that has captivated and confused much of the world.

The president rescheduled the June 12 get-together with the North’s leader, Kim Jong-un, barely a week after scrubbing it on the grounds that Mr. Kim’s government had shown “open hostility” toward the Trump administration. In the days since, both sides have worked to bridge the divide and proceed with the meeting.
