Second Trump-Kim Summit Possible
June Park on Australia Broadcasting Corporation (ABC)

Update: The White House announced Friday afternoon that a second summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will take place near the end of February 2019.
On Friday, political economist and Asia 21 Young Leader June Park ('17) joined ABC News Australia to talk about a possible second summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Park, an adjunct professor of global affairs at George Mason University Korea, points out that Vietnam has emerged as a front-runner for hosting the summit because of the country's geographical location and development model—a mixture of a market economy and "authoritarian leadership" that Park believes could appeal to Kim.
