February 28, President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met for a summit in Hanoi, Vietnam. This is the second meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong-un.
The ultimate goal for the U.S. was to convince North Korea to denuclearize, but more specifically for Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, to do so. Trump offered to scale back on some U.S. sanctions in a trade-off for Pyongyang to give up much of its nuclear weapons program. However, Kim Jong-un refused the offer, advocating for all of the United States’ sanctions to be relieved. President Trump declined the counter-offer and left Vietnam shortly after.

“Sometimes you have to walk. I could have signed an agreement today and then you people would have said, ‘Oh, what a terrible deal,’” said President Trump to the media.
Although the two did not come to an agreement, North Korea will continue to put a pause on nuclear and missile tests as promised sixteen months ago.

There are no reports of another summit between the two anytime soon, seeing as the recent summit achieved close to nothing. Even so, President Trump mentioned that communications with North Korea would be open, and that there is no bad blood between the United States and North Korea following the summit.

“I’m in no rush. There’s no testing. As long as there’s no testing, I’m in no rush. If there’s testing, that’s another deal,” President Trump said.
