What happened at Trump-Kim meeting II?

Updated : February 27, 2019 06:32 PM IST

Eight months after the historic — but heavily criticized in some quarters as substance-free — summit in Singapore, the two men met in the Vietnamese capital for a one-on-one-discussion, followed by an intimate dinner.Earlier in the day, Trump had diplomatic duties of the respect and courtesy to the host nation variety to attend to. But Kim, staying in Vietnam through Saturday, was secluded in preparation. Thursday sees the full gamut of high-stakes denuclearization bartering, with predictions of some significant and splashy American concessions in return for maybe not very much at all besides a global feeding frenzy on events there rather than Trump's Washington woes.
