With fall here and colder temperatures arriving in Washington, D.C., President Trump will probably be headed back to Palm Beach County soon -- and he may be bringing another national leader to our area. 

During an announcement Tuesday that U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley will leave her position, a reporter also asked Trump about a second meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

Trump said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit this week to Pyongyang was in part to discuss a second summit following June's meeting between the two leaders in Singapore.

The reporter mentioned Trump's Mar-a-Lago's estate on Palm Beach as a possible meeting site.  

Below is the exchange:

President Trump: "It is happening and we're setting that up right now. That was part of the reason that Mike was going over to meet. They're setting up the meeting and we'll be announcing that -- probably a different location. Singapore was fantastic, but we're probably do a different location."

Reporter: "You'll get him to Mar-a-Lago?"

President Trump: "He'd probably like that. I'd like that too. I think it would be good."

Trump said the second summit "is happening" and that the "timing won't be too far away" with "three or four different locations" being considered.

Since Trump took office, he has hosted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago.
