'No agreement was reached' at Trump, Kim summit - White House

'No agreement was reached' at Trump, Kim summit - White House

The White House has said that no deal was reached during the summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un in Hanoi. Their meeting was cut short, with both leaders leaving early without holding a signing ceremony.

Trump and Kim were seen leaving the Metropole hotel separately, almost two hours before they were expected to conclude their meeting and hold a signing ceremony.

Speculation over what transpired was quickly put to rest after the White House stated that no deal had been reached.

“No agreement was reached at this time,” press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed. However, a seemingly mixed message was also sent by Washington, claiming that the meeting between the two leaders was “good” and “constructive.”
