Transcript for Trump responds to North Korea's summit threat
To the white house now and latest on the summit with north Korea. President trump now taking steps to reassure Kim Jong-un after that threat from North Korea to cancel the historic meeting. Our senior white house correspondent Cecilia Vega has the details. Good morning, Cecilia. Reporter: George, good morning. These insults of the past, rocket man, we are not hearing that anymore. No he is offering Kim Jong-un protections. From the oval office, president trump enticing Kim Jong-un to talks by offering him a life line. He'll get protection that is will be very strong. If we make a deal, I think Kim Jong-un is going to be very, very happy. Reporter: The president seemed to pledge Kim would remain in power if there's a deal. This would be with Kim Jong-un something where he'd be there. He'd be in his country. He will be running it. Reporter: They signaled they could be getting coal feet saying they might not attend a meeting with president trump afn urged them to do what Libya did more than a decade ago. We have very much in mind the Libya mod from 2003/2004. Reporter: To North Korea that sounds like regime change. After Libya gave up its nuclear program, dictator moammar ghadhafi was murdered in the streets. With Bolton right there looking on, president trump flatly contradicted him. Well, the Libya model isn't a model that we have at all when we're thinking of North Korea. In Libya we decimated that country. Reporter: The president ever optimistic the summit is still on as they continue to make plans for Singapore. Nothing has changed with North Korea that we have know of. We haven't been told anything. If it does, it's fine. If it doesn't I think we'll probably have a very successful meeting. Reporter: That reaction from the president is exactly what we're hearing unanimously from the state department, from other white house officials, from the national security council, George, they all say despite North Korea's threats to pull out of this meeting, they are all still planning and moving ahead as if this is going to happen. Yeah, want to keep everything on track. On the home front, Cecilia, a main move from the white house taking on planned parenthood. Reporter: We are told this morning from a white house official this announcement will happen today essentially this requires abortion services to be offered in a space from where other family planning activities are happening. Abortion rights groups are calling this a gag order and says it blocks them from providing abortion information and services and they will lose their family planning funding. This is aimed as you said at planned parenthood, but anti-abortion groups are cheering this one. Could affect more than $250 million in funding.
