Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Friday that President Trump is "hopeful" about the proposed meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, but made clear that the meeting will not take place until the U.S. sees "concrete actions on the promises they've made." Sanders added that a time and place have not yet been determined.

Worth noting: Sanders said that the White House "made zero concessions" by agreeing to talks with North Korea, adding that North Korea "promised to denuclearize." However, the South Korean national security adviser only said that North Korea "is committed to denuclearization."
