NoKor summit back on, Trump says after meeting Kim envoy

  US President Donald Trump said Friday he will meet North Korea's Kim Jong Un as originally scheduled on June 12 for a historic summit after extraordinary Oval Office talks with a top envoy from Pyongyang. Speaking after more than an hour of talks with Kim Yong Chol in the Oval Office, Trump told reporters that denuclearization -- and a formal end to the decades-old Korean war -- would be on the table in Singapore.

Border deal: Trump falls short on wall, Dems get less too

WASHINGTON --- The undisputed grand prize at stake for President Donald Trump in the border security talks was money for his proposed wall with Mexico. He flat out got much less than he demanded. But to clinch the deal that congressional leaders hope to approve this week --- and that they're prodding Trump to sign or risk a new government shutdown --- Democrats gave ground, too. Especially in their bid to fetter the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency's ability to detain unauthorized immigrants. It's the kind of accord that, for now, has elicited few bellows of triumph by either side. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on Tuesday called it "a pretty g...Keep on reading: Border deal: Trump falls short on wall, Dems get less too.....»»

Trump Appears to Sour on Congressional Border Security Talks

WASHINGTON (AP) --- President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Thursday to ratchet up his demands on his long-stalled border wall, appearing to sour on congressional talks aimed at striking a deal with Democrats that he could sign. In a barrage of morning tweets, Trump sent mixed messages in which he alternately hardened his wall demand, but also suggested that repairing existing fencing is a big part of his plan. "Lets just call them WALLS from now on and stop playing political games! A WALL is a WALL!," Trump tweeted.
