    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - US President Donald Trump said that he expects the White House to announce the date and location of his upcoming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in the coming days.

    "I think the location and date will be announced over the next couple of days," Trump told reporters.

    On Monday, Trump said several sites were still under consideration for the meeting, including Singapore and the demilitarized zone (DMZ) on the border between North Korea and South Korea.

    During a rally in the US state of Michigan on Saturday, Trump said his meeting with Kim could happen in the next three or four weeks.

The same day, US President Donald Trump said that he would hold a meeting with the North Korean leader in "the coming weeks."
