Trump announced Thursday that he would scrap plans for an unprecedented meeting with North Korea in response to what he called “tremendous anger and open hostility” by the other country.

One day after the cancellation, Trump told reporters that he may still meet with Kim as previously scheduled on June 12 in Singapore. The New York Times reported the reversal as a sign of conflicting approaches within the administration.

“We’re talking to them now. They very much want to do it. We’d like to do it. We’ll see what happens," Trump said. 

The president has also reportedly dismissed concerns by top White House staff and advisers that North Korea was manipulating him, according to The Times.
