Fox News host sorry for calling Trump, Kim 'two dictators'

Abby Huntsman called the Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump summit "that meeting between two dictators".

Abby Huntsman apologised for her remarks, stating: "We all have slip ups in life". Or at least, unexpected on Fox.

A Fox News host said sorry after calling Donald Trump a dictator live on air.

The two leaders are staying at separate hotels during the summit, with Kim opting for the St Regis and President Trump choosing the Shangri La.

Anthony Scaramucci, Huntsman's guest and Trump's former White House Communications Director, appeared not to notice Huntsman's mistake and continued talking.

Trump - who spent the weekend at the G7 summit, alienating America's allies in Western democracy - and Kim are set to kick off the summit tonight with a one-on-one meeting that may run as long as two hours, which concerns advisers and experts alike.

"He's a disruptive risk taker", Scaramucci said.

Addressing the media briefly after their handshake Trump said while sitting next to Kim: "It's my honor - we will have a terrific relationship, I have no doubt".

Mr Trump responded on Twitter, saying: "The fact that I am having a meeting is a major loss for the US, say the haters & losers".

Both men sat alongside each other against a backdrop of North Korean and United States flags, with Kim beaming broadly as the United States president gave him a thumbs up.

Comedian Dennis Miller tweeted: 'At the very least I hope Trump persuades Kim Jong-un to lose that Single Kit Kat Segment haircut'.

"A very worthy, smart negotiator, absolutely", Trump told reporters while standing alongside Kim.

Later, Hunstman said that sometimes on live TV, she doesn't say things perfectly.

The optimistic summit was a remarkable change in dynamics from less than a year ago, when Mr Trump was threatening "fire and fury" against Mr Kim, who in turn scorned the American president as a "mentally deranged U.S. dotard".

Still, the sense of anticipation was great in Singapore, with people lining spotless streets holding cellphones high as Trump headed to meet Lee.

"The short one says; "I like your hair", the tall one says "did you see the size of my crowd".

"Maybe in a year you'll be interviewing and I'll say I made a mistake".
