North Korea watchers say that a summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un is still "highly likely" to occur despite the president cancelling the highly anticipated talks last week. From North Korea's point of view, a US presence in the country might give Pyongyang a "sense of security" against a possible USA attack.
Mr Trump had rattled the region on Thursday by cancelling his June 12 meeting with Mr Kim, citing "tremendous anger and open hostility" from Pyongyang.
"I truly believe North Korea has brilliant potential and will be a great economic and financial Nation one day", Mr Trump wrote on Twitter after a second straight day of golf at his Virginia club.

There has been back and forward over whether the historic meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un will go ahead. They met with Choe Son Hui, the North Korean vice foreign minister, the Post said.
The meetings are expected to continue on Monday and Tuesday and are focused on the issue of North Korea's nuclear weapons program, it said.
The Washington Post reported that the United States delegation to the Panmunjom meeting - in the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea - was led by Sung Kim, a former U.S. ambassador to South Korea and former nuclear negotiator with the North.
Trump's blocking of critics on Twitter violates Constitution: U.S. judge
The feature prevents selected accounts from appearing in a user's Twitter mentions - effectively blocking them from Trump's view. The Knight Institute hopes that the ruling against Trump will set a precedent for other public officials across the country.
Sung Kim, a former U.S. ambassador to South Korea and former nuclear negotiator with the North, has been called in from his posting as envoy to the Philippines to lead the preparations, according to a person familiar with the arrangements. We're looking at June 12 in Singapore. Trump welcomed the men home at Joint Base Andrews near Washington earlier this month. "I think the president has got the North Koreans in a place that any other president might not have managed to get done", said Sen. What North Korea has meant traditionally by regime security is end of U.S. Kim expressed hopes to meet for candid dialogue, reported Yonhap, to which Moon agreed.
"He (Kim) also expressed his intention to put an end to the history of war and confrontation through the success of the North-US summit and to co-operate for peace and prosperity", Mr Moon told reporters.
But now, at least for the time being, Trump is in the same position as his predecessors, whom he has criticized repeatedly - even mocked - for failing to deal adequately with North Korea's nuclear threat. The North hasn't openly repeated those same demands after Kim's sudden outreach to Seoul and Washington. Moon said Sunday that the North's disarmament could still be a hard process even if Pyongyang, Washington and Seoul don't differ over what "complete denuclearization" of the peninsula means.
