President Donald Trump on Sunday said he truly believes North Korea has “brilliant potential and will be a great economic and financial Nation one day” just days after he canceled his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The president made the statement the same day a U.S. team arrived in North Korea to prepare for the proposed meeting between Trump and Kim on June 12. The on-again, off-again summit will take place in Singapore.

Trump called off the meeting on Thursday, citing the "tremendous anger and open hostility," in recent statements from Pyongyang, and North Korea hardened its rhetoric toward the U.S., warning it was ready for a "nuclear-to-nuclear" showdown if the U.S. didn’t follow through on the summit.

But Trump reversed himself Friday after North Korea said it was willing to talk at "any time," and Kim, at a surprise meeting between the North Korean leader and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, produced a promise to continue discussions.
