White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced Monday that President Trump's preliminary meeting with Kim Jong-un in Singapore on June 12th will be at 9am local time (June 11th, 9pm EST).

What to watch: Asked whether the administration is continuing their maximum pressure campaign on North Korea ahead of the summit, added “our policy hasn’t changed” toward Pyongyang. Sander was careful not to mention the term, "maximum pressure," after Trump stated last week that he wanted to avoid the language given the U.S. and North Korea are "getting along now."
