White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday the forthcoming nuclear negotiation between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is part of the administration's "maximum pressure campaign" against Pyongyang, but walked back the assertion that the meeting would happen by May. Trump will not take the meeting "without seeing concrete steps and action" from North Korea, Sanders said. On Twitter Friday night, however, Trump seemed to downplay such preconditions. "The deal with North Korea is very much in the making and will be, if completed, a very good one for the World," he wrote. "Time and place to be determined."
