A top North Korean official is headed to the United States.

Kim Yong Chol is on his way to New York to meet with secretary Pompeo, to lay the ground work for the upcoming summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un. An event the Democrats said would never happen, an that Trump was afraid of.

As reported by cnn.com

Seoul (CNN)One of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s top officials is traveling to the United States and will meet Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as the two countries lay the groundwork for on-again, off-again talks between Kim and US President Donald Trump in Singapore on June 12.

Trump himself confirmed the news of Kim Yong Chol’s trip to the US early Tuesday, tweeting: “We have put a great team together for our talks with North Korea. Meetings are currently taking place concerning Summit, and more. Kim Young Chol, the Vice Chairman of North Korea, heading now to New York. Solid response to my letter, thank you!”

Kim will meet with Pompeo later this week, according to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.,

Once he touches down on American soil, Kim would be the most senior official to visit the United States since 2000, when Vice Marshal Jo Myong Rok traveled to Washington to meet with former US President Bill Clinton in the Oval Office. Then-US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright traveled to North Korea later that month.

His trip comes as the United States and North Korea attempt to revive the summit, a potential diplomatic triumph for two countries technically still at war.

This is a huge deal. Kim Yong Chol is Kim Jong Un’s right-hand-man, and led the delegation for North Korea at the winter olympics. Kim will be the first North Korean diplomat to visit the U.S. since 2000. President Trump is making history.

Let us know what your thoughts on the summit are.
