The US and North Korea have settled on a venue for the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday.

The meetings often proceeded at a painstaking pace. North Korean officials are "sensitive to being dictated to," one source close to the talks said, and the Hagin-led team has taken pains to present ideas for the summit in a collaborative way.
"Even if you're leading a horse to water, you have to do it in a way that is collaborative," the source said.
North Korean officials in Singapore also needed to get sign-off on almost every detail with their superiors in Pyongyang, leading to one- or two-day intervals before they could reach an agreement on even minor logistical details, the source said.
