ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Members of the media knocked over a table in the Oval Office on Friday as they jockeyed for position during a photo op with President Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in. Trump and Moon met for a second day of summit talks on Friday focusing on North Korea's nuclear threat and on trade, after the U.S. president said they had discussed a new trade deal to replace one that he sees as unfair. Moon, making his first trip to the United States since becoming president in May, was greeted again by Trump at the White House, where he attended a dinner hosted by the U.S. president on Thursday. Trump has spoken harshly about U.S. trade imbalances and threatened to tear up a five-year-old trade agreement reached with South Korea by his predecessor Barack Obama. Moon, meanwhile, has taken a wary stance on the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system that the United States deployed in South Korea in March. At the start of Friday's meeting, Trump said a renegotiated trade deal would be more equitable and "many options" were being discussed on North Korea.
