7:05 am
the homeless outreach community and the department so we make sure that we get the individuals and offer them time and time again shelter, housing. our goal is to help get these people off of the streets, on to their own two feet and on to better lives. >> reporter: now, of course homeless advocates have been critical of the -- of the encampments being removed across san francisco since the mayor put a concerted effort here on removing the large encampments. a lot say this is not a real solution. that people will just move a few blocks away and set up camp once again. the mayor has put the focus on removing all of the large homeless encampments in the city of san francisco. that is where more than ten tents are set up. in their estimation, these are -- this behind us here is the last large encampment in the city of san francisco and

7:08 am
washington, d.c. with a look at the most recent developments. >> reporter: good morning. one would imagine that the teams are negotiating at a fever pace to get everything to take place in a couple of weeks. the one thing be that we have learned, you've got to keep an eye on the airportsed. followings this guy in a white shirt through the beijing airport. he is a top north korean official, possibly on his way now to the united states. in fact he was just sitting at kim jong-un's side on saturday during a meeting with the south korean president, the same day that president trump indicated that a summit may still happen. >> it's moving along very nicely. >> reporter: moving along nicely perhaps. and the u.s. delegation has been talking with north korean counter parts. but the same issues that led president trump to back out of the summit once could crop up again. is north korea really ready to deal and give up the nuclear program? >> we want the north koreans to dismantle their program
7:09 am
immediately. the north koreans want to dismantle the program never. so, yeah, it is a difference in timetable. >> reporter: those are the sort of issues that will have to be worked out before a singapore summit. and there are other players as well. especially china. and that's where more u.s. pressure could come to bare. >> what has to change, china has to see north korea not as an asset but a liability. >> reporter: yeah. will china be supportive of the effort? there is overlap between dealing with north korea and also the united states and china working out some trade differences. back to you guys. >> so doug, it appears that we haven't received a definitive word from the president that the june 12th summit is back on. >> reporter: well, everything is kind of indicating that it may be. i mean, the president has indicated that he thinks it could still happen at that date. but, you know, they have to kind of work out all of the issues before anyone actually meets in singapore in a few weeks. >> okay. doug luzader live in d.c. thank
