      U.S. President Donald Trump is coming to Korea Tuesday for a two-day visit. He and First Lady Melania Trump are expected at Osan Air Base around noon.

      Trump will be welcomed by Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha and Korean ambassador to the U.S. Cho Yoon-je and his wife.

      He first visits Camp Humphreys, the new U.S. Forces Korea headquarters in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province, where he will address Korean and U.S. soldiers and have lunch before being flown to Seoul by helicopter.

      An official welcoming ceremony will be held at Cheong Wa Dae at 2:30 p.m. After the ceremony, he will sit down with President Moon Jae-in, their third face-to-face meeting.

      After a joint press conference, a state dinner will be held at Cheong Wa Dae, followed by a concert of Korean traditional music and K-pop.

      On Wednesday, Trump will give a speech to the National Assembly and pay his respects at the National Cemetery before leaving for China.

      Meanwhile, Moon sent Trump a message on Monday offering his condolences over the mass shooting in Texas on Sunday.
