US President Donald Trump's confirmed he'll hold a second nuclear summit with North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un.

It is set to take place later this month.

The two-day meeting will take place in Vietnam on February 27th.

This will bet eight months following the pair's first historic talks.

The US-Mexico Border

Trump revealed the plan as part of his State of the Union speech.

He also insisted a wall will be built on the US-Mexico border to tackle illegal immigration.

Mr Trump urged Democrats to approve funding for a border wall.

Mr Trump claimed "large, organised caravans" were marching to the US and he had sent 3,750 troops to "prepare for the tremendous onslaught".

"Simply put, walls work and walls save lives," he said.

Reaction

Reaction to his speech was swift, and scathing from some:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

In her response, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said: "It will take days to fact-check all the misrepresentations that the president made tonight."
