Second North Korea-U.S. summit to take place after November midterms: Trump Updated: 2018-10-10 18:02:25 KST

U.S. President Donald Trump says the highly-anticipated second North Korea-U.S. summit will happen after the midterm elections on November 6th.
Reuters reported on the development on Tuesday, as President Trump spoke to reporters onboard Air Force One while flying to Iowa for a political rally.
With the crunch elections just a matter of weeks away, President Trump told them that he can't just leave now.

Earlier at the White House, President Trump also discussed possible sites for the summit.
But among the possible locations, Singapore probably isn't going to be one of them.

"Well, it is happening and we're setting that up right now. That was part of the reason Mike was going over to meet. They're setting up the meeting and we'll be announcing that. Probably a different location--, Singapore was fantastic but we'll probably do a different location."

When asked whether his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida could be a possible location, the U.S. leader said it might be.

"He'd probably like that. I would like that too. I think it would be good but we'll see. We're talking about three or four different locations. Timing won't be too far away."

President Trump also touted his "very good relationship" with Chairman Kim and cited the recent lack of nuclear and missile tests as a sign of progress in the denuclearization process.
He added he believes North Korea will be "incredibly economically successful" if it denuclearizes.

This comes as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters at the White House on Tuesday that he made "real progress" on his four-nation tour of Northeast Asia that took him through Japan, North Korea, South Korea and China.
Pompeo said that, while there's still much work to be done, Washington can now see a path where they will achieve the ultimate goal of the full and verified denuclearization of North Korea.
