Trump announces second North Korea summit
World | politics | 11:03, 06 February 2019 | 546

AKIPRESS.COM - US President Donald Trump has announced in his State of the Union speech that he will hold a second nuclear summit with North Korea's leader this month, BBC reports.

In an address to the nation with the theme "Choosing Greatness", he vowed once again to build a border wall.

While appealing for political unity, the Republican president also said "ridiculous partisan investigations" could damage US prosperity.

In a rebuttal, Democrats accused Mr Trump of abandoning US values.

His primetime address came less than a fortnight after he backed down to end the longest US government shutdown in history when Democrats refused to fund a US-Mexico border wall.

Another shutdown could happen if no spending plan is agreed by the end of next week.
