She said the letter was received on Wednesday.
The White House confirmed to reporters that Trump received a letter from Kim on August 1.
The Post also reported that North Korean officials have talked about how they plan to deceive the US about the size of their arsenal of missiles and nuclear warheads and facilities.
"Today, they are known but to God", said Pence, whose father fought in the Korean War.
McKeague said that DPAA has a DNA database from 92 percent of the families of the estimated 7,700 USA service members still listed as missing from the 1950-53 Korean War and DNA comparisons with the remains from the 55 cases would begin shortly.

Trump also took to Twitter earlier to praise an "incredibly attractive ceremony" in Hawaii, where Vice President Mike Pence helped welcome the remains to the United States. "I can say that the letters addressed their commitment from their joint statement that was made at the Singapore summit and they're going to continue working together towards complete and total denuclearization".
Pompeo, who has led the USA negotiating effort with North Korea, visited Pyongyang from July 5-7 for inclusive talks aimed at agreeing a denuclearization roadmap. He said the U.S.is prepared to discuss arrangements for future U.S.
The latest letter from Kim arrived as concerns rise about North Korea's ballistic missile programme and commitment to denuclearisation.
Experts say positively identifying the decades-old remains could take anywhere from days to decades.
Les Moonves: No immediate CBS action on harassment claims
The CBS Board of Directors yesterday took no action in the matter, saying it would seek outside counsel to investigate it further. Moonves is the CEO, Chairman of the Board, and President of CBS Corporation.
The United States said during a solemn ceremony on Wednesday the human remains presumably included Americans killed in the Korean War and thanked North Korea for making good on its pledge to hand them over.
The return of the remains was one of Mr. Trump's conditions reached during the leaders' summit in June. He said during a Tuesday rally in Tampa, Florida, that the USA was "doing well" with North Korea and noted the return of detained Americans and Pyongyang's ceasing of nuclear testing and missile tests.
The Washington Post, citing officials familiar with United States intelligence, reported this week that North Korea appears to be building up to two liquid-fueled intercontinental ballistic missiles.
To work on the additional remains the team of DPAA researchers assigned to identifying the remains of Korean War missing will almost double in size from five to nine. Gen. Kelly McKeague, the DPAA director, Byrd said his initial examination of the remains, and his discussions with the North Koreans, led him to believe that further analysis will show that the remains are those of Americans. The day of the transfer coincided with the 65th anniversary of the 1953 armistice agreement that put a temporary stop to the war between the North and South. It comes after a report based on satellite images from July 20 and July 22 revealed that North Korea was dismantling an important satellite launch facility.
The Pentagon said last week it was considering the possibility of sending personnel to North Korea to search for additional remains.
