One-on-one meeting between Trump and Kim Jong Un causes problems

Trump's attendees included National Security Adviser John Bolton, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

"We may be able to recoup a little bit of that, but I think it is a cost that we're willing to pay and it's our contribution to an worldwide endeavor, which is in our profound interests", he added.

"We have developed a very special bond", Trump said.

Following a sit-down with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un yesterday, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong held a private meeting with US President Donald Trump this afternoon ahead of tomorrow's big summit. North Korea is seeking a security guarantee - possibly including a peace treaty formally ending the Korean War - and the removal of the U.S.'s nuclear umbrella protecting allies South Korea and Japan.

He thanked the summit hosts, and then lauded Kim for an "honest, direct" meeting and for taking the "first bold new step" toward peace for his people.

It's the first ever meeting between a sitting USA president and North Korean leader. It's aimed at settling a standoff over Pyongyang's nuclear arsenal.

Trump appeared optimistic about the talks and said Kim was a "worthy negotiator" and talented man who "loves his country very much".

"It was not an easy journey", Kim said earlier.

While the president has more recently sought to temper expectations of what he may be able to achieve with the summit, he has also said the interaction amounts to a crucial test in determining whether Kim is genuine in committing to rid his country of its nuclear program.

"Adversaries can indeed become friends", Mr. Trump said.

The two leaders began their historic summit meeting around 8am Singapore time with a series of handshake photo opportunities.

Rodman grew emotional in the interview as he recalled former President Barack Obama failing to take him seriously when he returned from Pyongyang with a message from Kim after one of his trips.

North Korea has nominally committed to the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula, but it has traditionally used that term to also demand that the US remove its assets, including troops, from the region.

"Nice to meet you Mr President", were the words spoken by Mr Kim upon meeting Mr Trump.

The North Korea leader said through a translator that the document "heralds a new start, leaving the past behind".

Kim has rejected calls to unilaterally give up his weapons in return for economic aid, and instead has proposed a step-by-step denuclearization process.

"North Korea has previously confirmed to us its willingness to denuclearize, and we are eager to see if those words prove honest", Pompeo said.

Speaking to Cuomo, Rodman got emotional as he spoke of his efforts of trying to bring bitter rivals North Korea and the United States together.

One of the world's most reclusive leaders, Kim visited Singapore's waterfront on Monday, smiling and waving to onlookers, adding to a more affable image that has emerged since his April summit with South Korean leader Moon Jae-in.
