President Trump sent a message today to North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un: “See you in Singapore.”

Trump’s much-ballyhooed sit-down with the often erratic North Korean president will be a history-making meeting now scheduled for June 12.

The announcement came just hours after three Americans had been released by North Korea and landed safely back in the United States.

From The New York Times:

The summit will be the first face-to-face meeting between a sitting American president and the North Korean leader. Releasing the hostages removed a significant obstacle for Mr. Trump as he heads into the peace talks. A senior United States official said their release was an American condition to the talks.

The president praised Mr. Kim and said he was “nice in letting them go before the meeting.” Last year Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim threatened nuclear war against each other’s countries.

“We’re starting off on a new footing,” Mr. Trump said early on Thursday.

Mr. Trump hopes to convince Mr. Kim to abandon his nuclear weapons and the missiles that can carry them.
