Washington (dpa),   Oct 10, 2018- US President Donald Trump wants to wait until after midterm congressional elections next month to hold a second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.   


Trump told reporters on a flight from Washington, DC to the mid-western state of Iowa on Tuesday that he was currently too busy campaigning to arrange it.   


“I just can’t leave now,” he said.   


US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held talks with Kim in the North Korean capital Pyongyang last weekend that also addressed the issue of a potential second summit.  Trump and Kim held their first meeting in Singapore in June, but the president said earlier Tuesday the venue would likely change for a second summit.   


“We’re talking about three or four different locations,” Trump said.  


Asked whether his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida - where he previously hosted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese leader Xi Jinping - was an option, Trump answered, “I think it would be good, but we’ll see.”  


The date for their next summit “won’t be too far away,” Trump added.
