Rodman Cries on Television After Trump-Kim Handshake

The menu for a working lunch served to U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un and their delegations during their summit at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore

North Koreans have gotten their first news that their leader Kim Jong Un had arrived in Singapore for what even the state-run media was calling a historic meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump.

On the eve of the first encounter between a sitting US president and a leader of North Korea, American officials are maintaining any resulting agreement must lead to an end of North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile threats.

The top USA and North Korean negotiators held a last-ditch meeting in Singapore on Monday to try to narrow the gap between the two sides on what denuclearisation by North Korea should look like.

"The entire world is watching the historic summit between (North Korea) and the United States of America", Kim told Lee through an interpreter when they met Sunday.

The country has diplomatic ties with both North Korea and the US. Trump said the meetings are going on well.

Despite the initial high stakes of a summit meant to rid North Korea of its nuclear weapons, the talks have been portrayed by Trump in recent days more as a get-to-know-each-other meeting.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the former Central Intelligence Agency director, spent the morning preparing with his top advisers, aides said. Trump said in a tweet.

It has been a rollercoaster road to the Trump-Kim summit, echoing the rocky relationship between the two unpredictable leaders, which has swung wildly between insults and cajolery.

Do you believe that Barcelona could have done that with (Andres) Iniesta? I came to wonder if it was not because of my colour. The midfielder had to wait until City's final home game of the season against Brighton for his first start of the season.

"The fact that I am having a meeting is a major loss for the USA, say the haters & losers", Trump wrote on Twitter from Singapore on Tuesday morning. "And it's my honour and we will have a terrific relationship I have no doubt".

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, meanwhile, said on Monday that preparatory talks had moved "quite rapidly", with the USA prepared to provide North Korea security assurances that are "unique" from what it has previously offered.

The summit will be the first between a North Korean leader and a sitting American president, and could define the fate of millions, along with the leaders' own political futures.

The seemingly warm exchange between Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim on Tuesday was particularly striking, coming just days after a public clash between the US president and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The company also sponsored one of Rodman's previous trips to the country, where he alleged gifted Kim a copy of Trump's book The Art of the Deal.

As Trump was trying to build a bridge with Kim, he was smashing longtime alliances with Western allies, withdrawing from the G-7 joint communique, escalating a trade fight and launching blistering criticism against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
