ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE – President Donald Trump says his next meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is likely to happen in January or February.

The president told reporters that there are three sites under consideration, but he’s not identifying them.

Trump, speaking aboard Air Force One on his return from Argentina, told reporters that he and Kim are “getting along very well” and have a “good relationship.”

He added that at some point he’d like to invite Kim to the United States.

Negotiations between the U.S. and North Korea on ending its nuclear program have appeared to stall in the months since Trump and Kim held a historic summit in Singapore in June.

The two leaders made a vague commitment on “denuclearization” of the Korean Peninsula during the summit, but glossed over how to make it happen.
