Singapore spin cycle: Trump, Kim prepare for nuclear summit

But after a flurry of diplomatic overtures eased tension in recent months, the two leaders are now headed for a history-making handshake that U.S. officials hope could eventually lead to the dismantling of a North Korean nuclear programme that threatens the United States.

Even if Kim offers only "a fine-sounding rhetorical commitment, and maybe a few missile surrendered or some site closures", he said, Trump will "market this thing as something extraordinary for his voters back home".

It is less than 24 hours until the historic summit in Singapore between the United States and North Korean leaders.

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.

Following their initial greeting, Trump and Kim will meet face-to-face without any staffers, then for an expanded meeting and a working lunch, the statement said.

Kim Yo Jong gained notoriety at the Winter Olympics in South Korea. Mr. Trudeau especially objected to the Trump administration's justification of the tariffs, saying Ottawa isn't a national security threat to Washington.

'Cheating Every Time' North Korea has previously promised to denuclearize, only to continue its nuclear program after receiving concessions from the U.S., said Michael J. Green, senior vice president for Asia and Japan Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

After that secretive summit, Bolton angered North Korea when he compared the country's path to denuclearization to Libya's, leading experts to believe the hawkish security adviser was trying to sabotage the talks.

Trump has also raised the possibility of further summits.

The first-ever meeting between a US president and a North Korean leader was to kick off at 9 a.m. Tuesday with a handshake, an image sure to be devoured from Washington to Pyongyang and beyond.

"I think within the first minute I'll know", Trump said.

State media may have tried a dry run to handle Mr Kim's absence two weeks ago, when Central Television reported his opening of a new railway bridge in the east of the country while he was still in the coastal city of Wonsan inspecting the construction of a major holiday resort.

The Economist and CNN do not predict a favourable result for the Trump-Kim summit either.

Kim's Diplomatic Win Just meeting with Trump will be a diplomatic accomplishment for Kim, who has emerged from isolation in recent months and rapidly increased his outreach to other world leaders.

Kim is meeting Trump on Tuesday for a historic summit aimed at discussing the future of his nuclear program.

"Our eyes are wide open with respect to the risks, but it is our fervent hope that chairman Kim wants to make a strategic change", he said.

Exuding confidence, Trump said he has done relatively little formal preparation.

"It's unknown territory, in the truest sense", Trump said during the G-7. "And he has that opportunity, and he won't have that opportunity again".
