Trump to discuss North Korea, trade with South Korean president

President Moon Jae-in will also visit the Korean War Veterans Memorial.

The White House said that putting pressure on North Korea will be central to their talks.

“He will talk about American commitments and reaffirm our commitments to South Korea, especially in light of the very urgent threat posed by North Korea," said a senior administration official who asked not to be named. "North Korea is going to be a major subject of conversation between the two -- coordinating the two governments on our approach to the North Korea threat and also talking on a range of other issues as well in the bilateral agreement, including trade.”

“There are aspects of the trade relationship that are not in balance," the senior official said, adding that it will be a friendly and frank discussion. “He will be, I think, forthright in talking about things like U.S. autos and the fact that there are still some barriers to U.S. auto sales in Korea; certainly, the enormous amount of steel that sometimes ends up being surplus Chinese steel that comes to the United States via South Korea.”
