(Politico) By NAHAL TOOSI 01/18/2019 12:28 PM President Donald Trump will hold a second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in late February the White House said Friday the latest effort to jump-start stalled nuclear negotiations with the Asian country. The announcement which did not give a location for the summit comes as Trump faces domestic political blow-back over the ongoing government shutdown. A second summit could offer him a foreign policy goal to point to as a way of rallying supporters. But while tensions between Pyongyang and Washington have eased in recent months theres no guarantee that another get-together between Kim and Trump will lead North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program as the U.S. wants. The two leaders first confab in Singapore last June the first time two sitting leaders from the U.S. and North Korea had met  has not led to Pyongyang reducing its nuclear missile program. In fact analysts say the country has only continued to secretly expand some missile bases. The brief announcement of a second summit came shortly after Trump met with Kim Yong-chol a top North Korean official in the Oval Office.
