Trump Today: Trump Today: President says ‘we’ll have to see’ if summit with North Korea’s Kim still on

President Donald Trump said Wednesday “we’ll have to see” about his planned meeting with Kim Jong Un after North Korea threatened to cancel the summit, met with Uzbekistan’s leader and tweeted that the U.S. hasn’t given in to China on trade.

‘WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS’

Asked if the summit with North Korea’s leader would still happen, Trump replied, “We’ll have to see.” He added his administration hasn’t seen or heard anything from North Korea, but “time will tell.” He insisted that he’ll call for denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, a demand that has riled North Korea.

NEWEST FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE

Trump’s latest financial disclosure was released by the Office of Government Ethics, showing that his book “The Art of the Deal” is still a money-maker and that becoming commander-in-chief didn’t do much to spur revenue at his golf courses. The form also appears to show a reimbursement to attorney Michael Cohen for paying pornographic actress Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about an alleged affair with Trump.

UZBEK LEADER

Trump hosted Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, and aides said Trump would press him on allowing more media and political freedom in the country. But the two did not hold a joint press conference, as is typical for foreign leaders visiting the White House.

‘NOTHING HAS HAPPENED WITH ZTE’

Trump defended his talks with China in a series of tweets, saying he wasn’t caving to Beijing’s demands to save telecom company ZTE ZTCOY, -15.37%  . “Nothing has happened with ZTE except as it pertains to the larger trade deal,” Trump tweeted. Last weekend, he’d said on Twitter he was working with Chinese President Xi Jinping to give ZTE a way to get back into business.

“There has been no folding as the media would love people to believe,” Trump said.
