Will Kim Jong Un Visit Mar-a-Lago? Trump Says 'Maybe We'll Start With the White House'

President Donald Trump is considering inviting North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to the U.S. if their Singapore summit next week goes well, he confirmed on Thursday. Trump also did not rule out his Mar-a-Lago resort as a potential meeting spot.

When a reporter during the afternoon press conference at the White House Rose Garden asked if Trump would welcome Kim to America, the president responded, "Yes."

The Daily Caller reporter Saagar Enjeti asked Trump if he would bring Kim to the White House or Mar-a-Lago, reported as a possibility on Wednesday. "Maybe we'll start with the White House, what do you think?" Trump replied with a smile.

Trump has been thinking about offering Kim a follow-up summit to their historic one slated to begin June 12, at his Mar-a-Lago property in Palm Beach, Florida, Bloomberg reported based on information from a U.S. official. The follow-up summit at the resort that Trump refers to as the "winter White House" could happen in the fall if the two leaders get along in Singapore, according to the report.

The president during his joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Thursday also said he believes he is "very well prepared" to meet with Kim in Singapore.

"I don't think I have to prepare very much. It's about attitude. It's about willingness to get things done. But I think I've been prepared for this summit for a long time," said Trump, who had canceled the summit but called it back on after Kim sent a letter to him through a North Korean envoy.

Trump said the letter was "warm" and "nice" and stated "nothing other than, 'We look forward to seeing you,' and, 'We look forward to the summit.'"

The president reiterated he would not stick around at the summit with Kim if talks do not go to his liking.

"All I can say is I am totally prepared to walk away," Trump said. "I did it once before. You have to be able to walk away."

But Trump seemed overall optimistic, saying it will be a "terrific success or a modified success."

"I hope the upcoming meeting in Singapore represents the beginning of a bright new future for North Korea," he said, "And, indeed, a bright new future for the world."

Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway told reporters on Wednesday that "there could be more than one meeting, more [than] one conversation" between Trump and Kim, and that a deal for North Korean denuclearization could take "two, three, four, five" meetings.
