The summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Vietnam was abruptly cut short as the two countries failed to reach an agreement. Mr. Trump would later explain to reporters the two countries didn't see eye to eye on sanctions and nuclear facilities.
Mr. Trump left Vietnam on Air Force One Thursday without a deal.
"President Donald J. Trump of the United States and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea had very good and constructive meetings in Hanoi, Vietnam, on February 27-28, 2019," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. "The two leaders discussed various ways to advance denuclearization and economic driven concepts. No agreement was reached at this time, but their respective teams look forward to meeting in the future."
An hour of confusion ensued before that statement. As reporters were waiting for a lunch between the two delegations to take place, Sanders said the expanded bilateral meeting would soon wrap up and Mr. Trump would then head back to his hotel. The president was supposed to take part in a signing ceremony with Kim, although Sanders wouldn't clarify whether that, too, is canceled.
The press conference Mr. Trump was scheduled to have shortly before 4 p.m. local time, 4 a.m. Eastern, has been moved up to 2 p.m. local time or 2 a.m. Eastern.
The White House hasn't explained what happened. Earlier in the day, both Mr. Trump and Kim expressed cautious optimism on reaching an agreement, and urged patience.
"I've been saying very much from the beginning that speed is not that important to me," the president said as he sat down with Kim. "I very much appreciate no testing of nuclear rockets, missiles, any of it. Very much appreciate it."
The real shock came when Kim took multiple questions from American reporters, something unprecedented. Asked if he is willing and ready to denuclearize, Kim responded through a translator, "If I'm not willing to do that I wouldn't be here right now."
Summit appears to be cut short
The Vietnam summit appears to be cut short, with White House press secretary Sarah Sanders explaining the president will soon go back to his hotel and the press conference will be moved up.
Sanders declined to say whether a signing ceremony that was supposed to take place at 2 p.m. local time, 2 a.m. Eastern, will still happen.
The lunch with Mr. Trump, Kim and their delegations has been delayed, as the extended bilateral summit between the two countries extends much longer than scheduled.
It's unclear if that will push back later events as well.
Trump says they're "discussing everything" when a reporter asks about human rights
Another reporter asked Kim a question. The reporter asked if Kim and Mr. Trump had discussed human rights.
But Mr. Trump jumped in to answer that question on Kim's behalf.
"We're discussing everything," Mr. Trump said.
Kim answers questions on liaison office, denuclearization
After reporters were ushered in for a glimpse of the expanded bilateral meeting, Kim was asked yet another question by a reporter. And he answered.
Asked if he's willing to denuclearize, Kim said, through a translator, "If I'm not willing to do that I wouldn't be here right now."
Asked if he's willing to take concrete steps towards denuclearization, Kim said, "that's what we're discussing right now."
Kim also expressed openness towards having a U.S. liaison office in North Korea. The two countries currently have no diplomatic ties.
"I think that is something which is welcomable," Kim responded.
Senior U.S. official says there's dissatisfaction with U.S. Envoy to North Korea
A senior U.S. official tells CBS News' Fin Gomez there is some dissatisfaction and frustration among U.S. officials directed at U.S. Envoy to North Korea Stephen Biegun. The official said he was "willing to offer too much" to the North Korea delegation ahead of meetings.
The official did not say how Biegun was supposedly offering too much, or whether that perspective had changed. Mr. Trump is now the chief negotiator. Mr. Trump is pushing his business and financial perspectives on Kim, something Mr. Trump has done publicly. The president has said he thinks North Korea can be an economic success story.

Trump and Kim take a walk
Mr. Trump and Kim took a walk outside for a photo opportunity, with Mr. Trump briefly saying hello to the cameras.
They are now heading into an expanded bilateral meeting, with more representatives from both sides present.
Other U.S. representatives spotted outside included Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, national security adviser John Bolton and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.
Dennis Rodman wishes Trump luck in summit
Former NBA star Dennis Rodman, who has made trips to North Korea, tweeted out a statement wishing Mr. Trump luck in negotiations.
Rodman said his friendship with Kim "remains strong" and "you are on the cusp of a big, beautiful deal."
Trump, Kim meet behind closed doors
The two men are behind closed doors for their first meeting of the day.
Kim says he's not pessimistic about deal with Trump
Kim, asked if he's confident he and Mr. Trump will reach a final agreement, responded, "it's too early to say. I would not say I'm pessimistic."
Trump says he's in no rush on denuclearization
Mr. Trump appeared to downplay expectations both for the summit and for denuclearization.
"So I can't speak necessarily to today, but I can say this, a little bit longer term, and over a period of time, I know we're going to have a fantastic success with respect to Chairman Kim and North Korea," Mr. Trump said. "They're going to have an economic powerhouse. I've been writing about it, I've been talking about it. I think it is going to be an economic powerhouse and it's something I very much look forward to helping with because with a little bit of help in the right location and the right place, I think it's going to be something very special."
"I've been saying very much from the beginning that speed is not that important to me," the president continued. "I very much appreciate no testing of nuclear rockets, missiles, any of it. Very much appreciate it. Chairman Kim and I had a great talk about that last night. I'd let him say what he said if he'd like to and if he doesn't want to, he doesn't have to. But we had a very good talk about that last night."
Trump and Kim sit down
Mr. Trump and Kim sat down for their first meeting, with female translators seated behind them.
Kim said North Korea has made many efforts so far, and so they decided it was time to have this dialogue, despite critics.
Mr. Trump said he thinks over the years they'll "be together a lot."
"We had very good discussions last night at dinner and the pre-dinner was very good," and lots of good ideas are being thrown around, Mr. Trump said.
Most importantly, the president said, he thinks the two leaders have a good relationship.
Trump arrives at meeting location
Shortly before 9 a.m. local time, or 9 p.m. Eastern time, Mr. Trump arrived at the hotel where he and Kim will meet for their full morning of meetings.
Onlookers lined the road, snapping photos as Mr. Trump's motorcade took to the streets. Security was tight.
Trump and Kim to sign joint agreement
Long before the president's second day of the summit began, the White House's schedule said Mr. Trump and Kim would sign a joint agreement.
But it's unclear what exactly they will be signing. Last year in Singapore, Mr. Trump and Kim signed a document that sketched out their mutual goals.
Mr. Trump will also hold a press conference for reporters.
