On Tuesday, Trump expressed doubts about the June 12 meeting taking place as scheduled when he hosted South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the White House, amid concerns that the North isn't committed to discussing dismantling its nuclear program.

Speaking from the White House before boarding Marine One on Wednesday, Trump said, "Someday a date will happen," for the North Korea talks, adding, and "It could very well be June 12."
