As of right now, South Korea has yet to hear back from the North Korean government regarding the extension of an offer to meet with the Donald Trump last week regarding denuclearization. In what some are referring to as a surprising turn of events, Trump accepted Kim Jong Un’s invitation last week, putting the ball back in North Korea’s court. It is unknown when negotiations regarding a time and location for the meeting will begin.

Additionally this morning, there are reports that a plane crashed this morning at Kathmandu International Airport in Nepal. The plane was capable of carrying up to 78 passengers, but it is unknown how many were on board and what the casualties were. It is not currently being thought to be an act of terrorism, as it is expected the plane simply ran off the runway accidentally.

On this day in 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt gave his first radio broadcast to the American people. Known as “fireside chats”, Roosevelt spoke directly from the White House, and he began his first one by saying, “I want to talk for a few minutes to the people of the United States about banking”. During a time when confidence was shaking due to the Great Depression, FDR’s fireside chats gave a little spark of hope.
