SINGAPORE (AP) President Donald Trump plans to depart early from his unprecedented summit with Kim Jong Un, the White House said Monday, declaring that nuclear talks with North Korea have moved more quickly than expected.
Trump had been scheduled to fly back to Washington on Wednesday morning after spending Tuesday with the North Korean leader in Singapore. But on the eve of the summit, he altered his schedule, opting to return at about 8 p.m. on Tuesday after a full day of meetings with Kim almost 15 hours earlier than previously anticipated.
The discussions between the United States and North Korea are ongoing and have moved more quickly than expected, the White House said in a statement.
