A stop at the DMZ separating North and South Korea is likely not in the cards for President Donald Trump during his upcoming Asia trip.

The Washington Times cited a senior official in the Trump White House who said concerns over logistics and security are keeping a DMZ vxisit off the schedule.

The schedule has not been finalized, however.

Trump is scheduled to visit five countries — Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam, and the Philippines — during the Nov. 3-14 trip. He will also make a stop in Hawaii.

It was rumored Trump could swing by the DMZ, where Vice President Mike Pence recently visited. Many former U.S. presidents and U.S. officials have gone to the DMZ to stare down the North Koreans on the other side of the border.

During the upcoming trip, Trump will play golf with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Japanese professional golfer Hideki Matsuyama on Nov. 5.
