Trump will spend time in South Korea Nov. 7, the White House said, adding that planned events include a bilateral meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, meeting service members and delivering remarks at the National Assembly in Seoul.
A senior administration official told reporters during a White House background briefing before the trip that there’s not enough time in Trump’s schedule to accommodate a visit to the Demilitarized Zone, which has separated North Korea and South Korea for 64 years.
Trump will visit Camp Humphreys, a military base about 40 miles south of Seoul, to highlight the U.S.-South Korean partnership and burden-sharing, instead.
Trump's trip comes amid his escalating rhetoric and taunts against North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and the country's nuclear program.
In a recent speech at the United Nations, Trump said he would "totally destroy" the nation, if necessary. He also derided Kim as "little Rocket Man."
