“Numerous countries are being considered for the MEETING, but would Peace House/Freedom House, on the Border of North & South Korea, be a more Representative, Important and Lasting site than a third party country? Just asking!” Trump wrote on Twitter, referring to the location where the leaders of North Korea and South Korea recently met. 

The remark comes ahead of an expected future meeting between Trump and Kim.

Delegations of the two Koreas met at the Peace House in January ahead of the Winter Olympics in South Korea. 

The White House has yet to announce a date or place for the potential summit. White House national security adviser John Bolton on Sunday said that the administration is still working to determine the meeting place.

“Well we need to agree on a place and that remains an issue,” Bolton told “Fox News Sunday.”

Kim met with South Korean leader Moon Jae-in last week, crossing the border into South Korea for the first time. During that meeting, Kim reportedly said he would give up his nation's nuclear weapons if the United States vows it won't invade North Korea.
