Trump revealed in a news conference after the summit in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi that no plans have been made for a third summit. The original White House programme for the day included a plan for a "Joint Agreement Signing Ceremony."

It also included a working lunch for the two leaders. However, the plan was changed after both leaders cancelled the lunch.
