3. Trump receives letter from Kim Jong Un

A White House official says President Donald Trump has received a letter from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un via one of his close aides, Kim Yong Chol, who visited Washington.

Trump met with Kim Yong Chol at the White House on Friday. A photograph released on Twitter shows the North Korean official handing a large white envelope to a smiling Trump.

Another photo shows Kim Yong Chol and other North Korean delegates as well as US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and US special representative for North Korea, Stephen Biegun, seated in line before Trump at his desk in the Oval Office. Trump is seen speaking and using hand gestures.
The White House hasn't disclosed any details of the letter. But it could contain a schedule for a planned summit between Trump and the North's leader.
The White House announced the two leaders will meet for the second time in late February.
