Trump Optimistic About Summit with N. Korea's Kim

U.S. President Donald Trump is predicting good relations with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at their summit this week in Vietnam, with the White House saying the main goal of the talks is the denuclearization of North Korea.
"We see eye to eye, I believe, but you'll be seeing it more and more over the next couple of days," Trump said Sunday.
"We're going to have, I think, a very interesting two and a half days in Vietnam," he told a group of state governors at a White House ball. "And we have a chance for the total denuclearization of an area of the world that was very dangerous."
The two leaders met last June, after which Trump declared, "there is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea."
But as he meets Wednesday and Thursday with Kim in Hanoi, the Vietnamese capital, there is little concrete evidence that progress has been made to set the specific terms of North Korea's promised denuclearization.
