Trump arrives in Singapore for historic summit

Trump arrives in Singapore for historic summit

FBN's Deirdre Bolton on President Trump's upcoming summit with North Korea.

The Royal Plaza on Scotts, a hotel near the Shangri-La where Trump is staying, was selling a Trump-Kim burger featuring kimchi, the spicy fermented dish that is a staple of Korean food.

Mr Moon discussed the summit with Mr Trump in a 40-minute phone call on Monday, telling his USA counterpart that South Koreans were praying for Mr Trump to "create a miraculous result" in the talks.

But Pompeo's comments sought to reaffirm the high benchmark the USA is setting for Trump and Kim to reach an agreement.

US President Donald Trump arrived In Singapore ahead of the US-DPRK Summit.

Key gaps remain over what denuclearisation would entail for two countries that have been enemies since the 1950-1953 Korean War, and the officials were trying to push the agenda forward before the leaders meet on Tuesday.

Iran said North Korea should be wary of negotiating with Mr Trump following his withdrawal from the landmark 2015 nuclear agreement.

The public will quickly find out how Trump viewed the summit.

Earlier, the White House on Monday issued a statement saying that Trump will depart from Singapore on Tuesday.

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

The rules also restricted ISPs from charging extra for certain traffic, creating so-called fast lanes for companies and consumers. But here are a few tactics that have been tried before that have drawn scrutiny under the old net neutrality rules.

Pompeo traveled twice to Pyongyang in recent months to lay the groundwork for Trump's meeting, becoming the most senior member of Trump's team to spend time with Kim face to face.

Trump "is an incredibly instinctive, intuitive, off-the-cuff, winging-it negotiator", said Marty Latz, the author of the forthcoming book "The Real Trump Deal."

"It's very great to host such a big event", said D.M. Lim, an office administrator who stopped to join the crowd outside St. Regis hotel on her way home from work.

Then-South Korean President Syngman Rhee wanted to continue fighting and refused to sign the treaty.

Ferial Saeed, a former State Department official, writes that the summit will be a "getting to know you meeting, "plus.' That means, lower your expectations, and that the president is likely to lean toward keeping his own counsel and eschew a script".

Although summit meetings between potential enemies are generally a positive indicator for war risks, they are largely symbolic and do not necessarily point to a shift in the conflicting motivations and strategic interests of the countries involved. "However, now there are good chances to push North Korean nuclear/missile program back, for many years perhaps, and keep it that way for some time".

The White House said the daylong summit would also include a working lunch and a larger meeting involving aides to both leaders. Or will Kim go in for a hug as he did with South Korean President Moon Jae-in?

Pompeo did say the United States is "prepared to take what will be security assurances that are different, unique that America has been willing to provide previously".

Trump has already floated the possibility of inviting Kim to Washington if the summit goes well.

Moon spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom also said Monday that Moon has no plans yet to speak with Trump after the meeting.
