Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is currently flying to North Korea, where he will continue preparations for President Donald Trump's planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump said Tuesday.
Trump said Pompeo would arrive in North Korea in "probably an hour."
"At this very moment, Secretary Pompeo is on his way to North Korea in preparation for my upcoming meeting with Kim Jong Un. Plans are being made, relationships are building," Trump said during remarks that were otherwise focused on his decision to pull the U.S. out of the Iran nuclear deal. "Hopefully, a deal will happen. And with the help of China, South Korea, and Japan, a future of great prosperity and security can be achieved for everyone."
