Trump is scheduled to meet with Kim on June 12 in Singapore. However, North Korea has cast some uncertainty on the planned summit in recent days.

The country warned that it may cancel the talks in light of military drills between the U.S. and South Korea, as well as remarks from national security adviser John Bolton referring to the "Libya model" of nuclear disarmament for Pyongyang. The White House considers the dismantling of North Korea's nuclear program to be the ultimate goal of the talks.

The White House and State Department have said they are continuing to plan for the summit despite those warnings.
