The White House delivered a whipsaw message to North Korea on Monday, announcing it’s ready to start planning a second meeting with Kim Jong Un just hours after President Donald Trump’s top national security adviser said nuclear talks were stalled.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that Trump had received “a very warm, very positive letter” from Kim seeking a follow-up meeting. There’s no evidence Pyongyang has taken any meaningful steps toward eliminating its nuclear arsenal since the leaders’ first historic meeting in June in Singapore.
