Trump said when he hopes to meet with Kim Jong Inom

Trump also says there may be no meeting at all. The tariffs took effect early yesterday.
Blue House spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom says in a statement released Saturday that the "road toward a North Korea-U.S. summit has widened and strengthened". Scott, thanks so much for being with us.
SCOTT HORSLEY, BYLINE: Hi, Mary Louise. They were placed on the country because of its nuclear program.
While trying to communicate its willingness to embrace Western diplomatic norms, Pyongyang has put in painstaking efforts to maintain reciprocity with Washington and Seoul, said Yang Moo-jin, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul. "It doesn't mean it gets all done at one meeting".
The North also demands the repatriation of a dozen North Korean restaurant workers, who came to the South in 2016 via China. The president went on to announce that a canceled summit with Kim was back on.
One other issue that could be resolved ahead of the June 12 summit: Whether or not Trump has already spoken to Kim by phone.
TRUMP: I think it's going to be a process that we deserve to have. We can go fast. "We're going to make sure when this is over, it's over".
While admitting that dealing with North Korea was "going to be a process", Trump said he believed that process would ultimately be "successful". Would U.S. troops remain on the Korean peninsula.
HORSLEY: Yes, although here, too, the president has dialed down his rhetoric just a bit.
It may also be that the strong sanctions being applied against North Korea (to which, for a change, China and Russian Federation seem to at least be paying lip service) is beginning to negatively affect North Korea. He also softened his tone, saying, "I don't want to use the term maximum pressure anymore".
Trump's meeting with Kim Jong Un would be the first between a US president and a North Korean leader since the division of the Korean Peninsula after an armistice was signed in July, 1953, following a civil war.
We can assume that Kim Jong Un's principal interest is to destroy, or to at least weaken, the alliance between the United States and South Korea, a goal that Chinese President Xi Jinping likely shares. Japan does. South Korea does.
The Economic Risks of Trump's Premature Tweeting
In the span of time between when Trump posted his tweet and when the jobs report was released, USA treasury yields shot up. But administration officials never appeared to comment before the report came out as Trump did on Friday.
"I think it will be very positive". But that's their neighborhood.
1 June: Senior North Korean envoy Gen Kim Yong-chol delivers a letter from Mr Kim in person at the White House. The U.N. General Assembly recommended that the U.N. Security Council refer the multiple violations of human rights in North Korea by the regime to the International Criminal Court.
HORSLEY: The president was asked about that.
But he said that, after what have now been two meetings with Kim Jong Un and three with Kim Yong Chol, he believes the North is at least ready to consider addressing U.S. demands for denuclearisation. "We understand there's a letter coming, and we look forward to receiving that letter and are trying to work towards our ultimate goal of denuclearisation", he said. If he brings the subject up at all, he prefers to do so quietly. What was in the "very nice" letter?
Here's what you need to know about the latest development in this diplomatic rollercoaster.
SIMON: And what are some of the implications for the USA economy? Each side, she said, will "try to add some steps to get advantage". That's a total of 3.6 million jobs in the 19 months since the 2016 election, nearly as many as the 4.1 million jobs added in the previous 19 months. But the people told the Post it's possible North Korea might find a USA payment insulting.

KEVIN HASSETT: There's a tremendous upside for the president's policy, which is that our trading partners start to act like us.
