Kim Yong Chol, who will become the highest ranking North Korean official to step foot in the U.S. in over a decade, is heading to New York to try to salvage the planned summit between President Trump and Kim Jong-un. Last week, Trump cancelled the meeting after an uptick in tensions with North Korea. Kim responded with a conciliatory statement, which prompted Trump to put the possibility of a meeting back on the table.
