The Day Ahead
President Donald J. Trump will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore at 9 p.m. ET.
President Trump prepares to meet Kim Jong Un
President Trump arrived in Singapore over the weekend, where he will hold his much-anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. President Trump and Chairman Kim will first sit down one-on-one, with translators only, before participating in an expanded bilateral meeting and a working lunch.
The President met with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong earlier today. President Trump thanked Prime Minister Lee for Singapore's generosity and partnership in hosting his meeting with Chairman Kim, and the two discussed ways to promote greater stability, security, and prosperity in the region.
President Trump attended the 44th G-7 summit in Canada this weekend before landing in Singapore. "The remarkably strong U.S. economy holds some key lessons for other economically advanced democracies," Larry Kudlow, Director of the White House's National Economic Council, wrote Friday. "There's a simple lesson in President Trump's record of achievement: Believe him."
Celebrate National Flag Week
President Trump proclaimed this week as National Flag Week, which will include National Flag Day this Thursday, June 14. "More than two centuries ago, on June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress formally adopted the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of our new Republic," the President writes in his Proclamation.
Honoring our Nation's emblems is important for this President. Last week, the White House hosted a Celebration of America, which included a stirring reminder of why we stand proudly for our National Anthem. This week's Proclamation is no different: "Our flag symbolizes our solemn pride and eternal gratitude to our service members, who willingly raise their hand in front of our Nation's colors and take an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States."
