Trump Poised to Meet Kim Jong-un

South Korean envoys announced at the White House yesterday that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has invited President Trump to meet with him face-to-face to discuss nuclear disarmament and other issues.

It’s a stunning development, given that the two leaders were trading insults and threats of war just a few months ago, and that North Korea was regularly testing missiles with nuclear warhead capability. Kim has vowed to halt missile testing during the period leading up to the meeting, which is tentatively set for May.

South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong and other leaders may have brokered the meeting during talks with Kim. Relations between the two Koreas begun to improve in the weeks leading up to the Winter Olympics held in the South.

Last But Not Least: Stanford Says No to College Republicans Logo Because American Flag

Stanford has denied the school’s College Republicans’ request for a new logo, apparently because it shows the American flag.

“We find the idea that flags are off limits ridiculous,” a Stanford College Republican spokesman said, “and especially the American flag shouldn’t be off limits.”

Get the lowdown on the rejection in CMN’s story.
