President Donald Trump has received a request from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for a follow-up to their historic June summit, and planning is in motion to make it happen. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that no details had been finalized.

A top Trump administration official Monday defended a plan to revamp the Endangered Species Act, saying the proposed changes would result in more effective, quicker decisions on species protection. Deputy Interior Secretary David Bernhardt dismissed criticism by environmental groups that the plan would “gut” crucial protections for threatened animals and plants.

An official with Trump’s campaign says they are canceling a trip to Mississippi because Hurricane Florence is approaching the southeastern coast of the U.S. Michael Glassner, Chief Operating Officer of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., announced the news Monday. The Trump campaign said last week he would have a “Make America Great Again” rally this Friday in Jackson, and that he would speak there for a Republican senator he has already endorsed.
