Speaking at a cabinet meeting on Monday, the U.S. President said that White House officials had been "in touch with North Korea", and that he planned to meet the DPRK leader in May or early June.

Trump later threatened to hold off on signing the renegotiated deal until after his summit with Kim, which was widely seen as a move to pressure Seoul to remain tough with Pyongyang.
"This should have been done by other presidents", Trump said.
Trump also talked about the recently renegotiated free trade agreement between South Korea and the United States, saying he think it's going to be "a very fair deal".
Nuclear deals with the North from the now suspended six-party talks fell apart amid a controversy over the sequence of agreed-upon actions. The U.S. president accepted Kim's offer before the U.S. could confirm the North's offer was genuine, and a meeting between the two was promised. South Korea has recently acted as an intermediary for the two rival administrations, though it has praised recent direct contact as positive. Noting both sides have agreed to pursue denuclearization, Trump said the summit is "very exciting for the world".

One anonymous Blue House official was quoted by the JoongAng Ilbo as noting that "If one insists the North must carry out complete, verifiable and irreversible disarmament as a pre-condition for dialogue, then we are going back to the status-quo". "We have him in a good spot right now", Delury said.
