  • President Donald Trump teased a “major announcement” to be delivered by South Korean officials at the White House on Thursday.
  • During their talks with Trump administration officials this week, a South Korean delegation passed along a letter from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, signaling forward movement in potential diplomatic talks between the two Koreas and the US.
  • The development comes after an unprecedented face-to-face meeting South Korean leaders had earlier with Kim Jong-un.
  • “Hopefully, you will give me credit,” Trump told one reporter.
