President Trump tweeted late Friday that he will meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un for a second time later this month, in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Trump and Kim held their first face-to-face meeting in Singapore last June.

Trump said officials with his administration had completed discussions with North Korean officials and set the meeting for Feb. 27-28.

Trump predicted that North Korea will become "a great Economic Powerhouse," adding that the North Korean leader "may surprise some, but he won't surprise me because I have gotten to know him & fully understand how capable he is. North Korea will become a different kind of Rocket - an Economic one!"
