If North Koreans want to meet, we'll be there - WH

The White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders stated on Thursday that the United States will move forward with the preparations for the meeting between President Donald Trump and the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un despite Pyongyang's warning about canceling the summit over the issue of military drills between the US and South Korea. Speaking at the White House, Sanders stressed that Washington does not intend to end the annual joint military exercises, but said that the president is ready for the summit and "if North Koreans want to meet, we'll be there." In case the meeting doesn't take place after all, the US will continue with the maximum pressure campaign, Sanders added.

Asked to explain Trump's latest tweet in which he slammed the ongoing Russia probe as "disgusting, illegal and unwarranted Witch Hunt," Sanders said that Trump "knows there's been no collusion in the campaign, and he has been quite clear about this." Also, the press secretary announced that the president will donate his first quarter of 2018 salary to the Department of Veteran Affairs.
