The Tuesday departure plan is tentative, the source said asking for anonymity because of the sensitivity of the information.

Kim is scheduled to meet Trump at 9 a.m. local time on Tuesday to talk about ending his country’s nuclear programme and transforming the isolated state which has been under harsh international sanctions for its defiant arms programme.
