Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un arrive in Singapore for historic summit

Kim Jong-un's'running bodyguards back in action again

A USA official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Monday's meeting appeared aimed at making 11th-hour progress ahead of the summit since Sung Kim's earlier talks did little to narrow a gap between the two sides on the definition of denuclearization or win agreement on tangible commitments from Pyongyang toward dismantling its nuclear arsenal.

As North Korean leader Kim Jong Un arrived in Singapore yesterday, his lookalike was already taking photos with fans. The two are scheduled to meet for the first time Tuesday morning. "This is the Trump style of getting things done", he said. "And obviously, what has been done before hasn't worked".

Obviously, one reason for Kim accepting the invitation is a chance at easing the dire economic situation in North Korea.

When Trump and Kim meet tomorrow at Sentosa, a resort island off Singapore's port with a Universal Studios theme park and man-made beaches, they will be making history.

Each man has his motivations: Hard-hitting sanctions and a desire for legitimacy brought Kim to the table.

On June 7, however, Trump changed his tune, saying "We could absolutely sign an agreement with North Korea".

Japan's government is anxious that Trump, with his "America First" focus, may accept a deal that eliminates the threat from North Korean intercontinental ballistic missiles that could strike the US mainland, without dealing sufficiently with medium-range missiles that could strike Tokyo.

Raising expectations in advance of the meeting, Trump said the outcome will rely heavily on his own instincts.

"I think within the first minute I'll know" if North Korea is serious about a deal, said the president, who then touted his dealmaking abilities.

"I think I'll know pretty quickly whether or not, in my opinion, something positive will happen", Trump said.

"I'm glad to say that as of now, it's all systems go".

April 21: North Korea says it has suspended nuclear and ICBM tests and plans to close its nuclear test site as part of a shift in its national focus to developing its economy.

Trump has expressed keenness about his summit with Kim and called it a "one-time opportunity".

The North Korean autocrat's every move will be followed by 3,000 journalists who have converged on Singapore, and by gawkers around the world, up until he shakes hands with Trump on Tuesday.

Trump reiterated his promise Saturday that the U.S. However, he took a U-turn soon and said the White House was proceeding with the preparations for the summit.

"[President Trump] is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea", Kudlow said on CNN's State of the Union.

Libya gave up its nuclear program at an early stage only to see its longtime dictator overthrown and killed less than a decade later.

"We want to surprise our daughter, who lives in MI (in the US)", he said.
