Dennis Rodman arrives in Singapore ahead of Trump-Kim summit

Donald Trump, Kim Jong-un arrive in Singapore for historic summit

A 2014 United Nations investigation found that conditions in North Korea were so abhorrent and crimes against humanity were occurring on such a broad scale that it likened the North Korean government to the Nazis.

President Donald J. Trump will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m.

When asked upon landing in Singapore how he was feeling about the encounter, Trump gave a brief answer: "Very good".

Retired American professional basketball player Dennis Rodman arrives at Changi International airport ahead of the U.S. Early in Trump's presidency, he raised eyebrows when he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a conference in Germany with only a Kremlin translator present.

While Trump was optimistic about prospects for the summit between the old foes, U.S. secretary of state Mike Pompeo injected a note of caution ahead of the first-ever meeting of sitting USA and North Korean leaders, saying it remained to be seen whether Kim was honest about his willingness to denuclearise.

That modest vision marks a break with the stratospheric goals he set after he agreed on March 8 to this meeting. Create peace and great prosperity for his land.

Hannity is one of the most vocal Trump allies in the media and is reportedly close with the president.

"While a summit between Trump and Kim would be historic, it is unlikely to be decisive".

At stake, he said: "America's security". "It is a historic negotiation, and there is no way this president is not going to stand strong", Kudlowsaid.

"And I don't think either interpreter will be in a position to correct the record if the self-reporting by Kim and Trump doesn't reflect what was actually said in the same manner and tone", said Jenny Town, assistant director of the U.S. -Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University.

She came into the global spotlight earlier this year as she attended the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, leading the North Korean delegation at the games.

Pompeo has disputed the notion that the president is moving the goalposts, telling reporters Thursday that Trump "has always understood that this was a process".

What comes next remains unclear.

He has also dined with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in NY.

Less than a week before the summit, Trump dismissed questions about his readiness, saying, "I don't think I have to prepare very much".

The article titled 'Trump and Kim - The meeting the world's been waiting for' also noted one subject that went untouched by other media houses - "What will nearly certainly NOT be talked about is North Korea's human rights record".

What did the secretary of state say?

The highly-anticipated talks had been put at risk when, on May 24, Trump announced he was canceling the meeting with Kim due to Pyongyang's hostile rhetoric. "The leader's excretions contain information about his health status so they can't be left behind", Yun-keol said.

Axios was the first outlet to report on the interview.

For all the sober-minded talk, it's clear the art-of-the-deal president is still hoping for a major diplomatic victory.

Kim has been more cryptic and calculating, with his regime vacillating between welcoming talks with the United States, ignoring American overtures, and sharply attacking some of Trump's top officials with insults and threats, said Patrick Cronin, director of the Center for a New America Security's Asia-Pacific security program. We will have seen each other.

Putin says he'll meet with Trump whenever United States is ready
On Xi's last visit to Moscow, in July 2017, Putin made him a member of the Order of St Andrew, Russia's highest chivalric order. Putin said it was not Russia's decision to quit the G7, saying he would be happy to see G7 leaders in Russian Federation .
