Trump-Kim Meeting Is Yet to Come, but U.S. Has Minted the Coins

Amid growing doubts about whether President Trump will meet with North Korea’s leader on June 12, Kim Jong-un, the Trump administration came under criticism Tuesday over commemorative coins that were created to honor the planned meeting.

The coins, issued by the White House Communications Agency, a military unit assigned to the president, feature likenesses of the two leaders, referring to Mr. Kim as “Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un.”

Some faulted the United States for honoring a dictator who runs a repressive regime.
