Trump said Friday it was even possible the meeting could take place on the originally planned date.White House officials noted that Trump had left the door open with a letter to Kim that blamed "tremendous anger and open hostility" by Pyongyang but also urged Kim to call him.Trump, in his letter to Kim, objected specifically to a statement from a top North Korean Foreign Ministry official.Trump then said from the White House that a "maximum pressure campaign" of economic sanctions and diplomatic isolation would continue against North Korea -- with which the U.S. is technically still at war -- though he added that it was possible the summit could still take place at some point.Trump, speaking Friday to graduates at the U.S. Naval Academy, did not mention North Korea directly, but he stressed the United States' military might.
