Trump predicts ‘tremendous success’ for historic summit

Trump predicts ‘tremendous success’ for historic summit

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un are scheduled to meet at 9 a.m. local time (1 a.m. GMT), simultaneously entering the negotiation room via different doors.

In March, Trump accepted Kim's invitation to meet, breaking with predecessors who had shunned any type of a summit without major concessions from North Korea or multilateral talks that included a host of other Asian countries. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the delegations were "rapidly" making progress, but it will come down to the meeting between the two leaders.

For Trump, cutting a deal to end the North Korean nuclear threat with his approach to Kim, in defiance of the USA security establishment's long-held ways of dealing with the North, would be a success unmatched by any predecessors.

Trump and Kim are staying in separate hotels in the famous Orchard Road area of Singapore, dotted with high-rise luxury apartment blocks, offices and glittering shopping malls.

Rodman announced on Twitter that he would be attending the summit in Singapore to give "whatever support is needed to my friends" referring to both Trump and Kim.

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

But it was only Monday morning in North Korea that the government news agency reported that Kim was in Singapore, had met with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and would meet Trump on Tuesday.

-North Korea summit, is expected to pick up a considerable portion of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's bills. Then aides to each were to join for more discussions and a working lunch.

Trump told reporters in Canada on Saturday any agreement with Kim would be "spur of the moment", underscoring the uncertain outcome of what he called a "mission of peace".

Liberal South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun sought to continue the legacy of his predecessor Kim Dae-jung by pursuing friendly relations and cooperation with the North.

Probably. In fact, Trump has been doing quite a bit of this lately.

In a September 2017 speech in front of the United Nations, President Trump referred to Kim as "Rocket Man" and threatened to "totally destroy North Korea", which earned a rare rebuke directly from Kim describing the president as a "frightened dog" and "mentally deranged USA dotard".

Singapore's foreign minister posted a selfie with Kim inside what's known as the "flower dome".

Trump is hoping to get Kim to agree to get rid of his nuclear weapons, though he has said it may take many more meetings to get to that point. The war was concluded with a truce, not a peace treaty, but a treaty will also have to include China, which was party to the armistice.

Pyongyang has said it is willing to deal away its entire nuclear arsenal if the United States provides it with reliable security assurances and other benefits.

It's so far unclear whether the US and North Korea will release some kind of joint statement or agreement following the sit-down.

He accompanied the young leader at all four of his recent summits, twice with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and twice with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Ordinary North Koreans citizens are not allowed to travel, so seeing a North Korean in the flesh is a thrilling affair.
