Trump, Kim Arrive In Singapore Ahead Of High-Stakes Summit

Intelligence Chiefs Testify To Senate Committee On World Wide Threats

United States and North Korean officials are set to meet Monday morning in Singapore to make final preparations for Tuesday's meeting.

Singapore Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan shared a photo that showed him Balakrishnan welcoming Kim Jong-Un to Singapore.

Trump flew into Singapore's Paya Lebar Air Base aboard Air Force One, looking to lay the groundwork for a nuclear deal with one of America's most bitter long-time foes, directly following his divisive meeting in Canada with some of Washington's closest allies that further strained global trade ties. The two are scheduled to meet for the first time Tuesday morning.

Trump has said he hopes to make a legacy-defining deal for the North to give up its nuclear weapons, though he has recently sought to manage expectations, saying more than one meeting may be necessary. "And obviously, what has been done before hasn't worked".

Several of the reporters who accompanied Kim to Singapore had also been to the demilitarised zone between the two Koreas in April for the inter-Korean summit.

Each man has his motivations: Hard-hitting sanctions and a desire for legitimacy brought Kim to the table.

When the topic of a trade war flaring up as a result of hiked tariffs that Trump promised to enforce, he declared that European countries and Canada need the USA more than the country needs them.

In authoritarian North Korea, where Kim's family has passed on power through three generations, images propagated by state media such as the Korea Central News Agency, the Rodong Sinmun newspaper and Korean Central Television, help build a leader's legitimacy and glorify his status.

The meeting will take place in Singapore at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa, and the hope is that the landmark talks - the first between a North Korean leader and a sitting USA president - will kickstart a process that will eventually result in North Korea giving up its nuclear weapons.

"I think I'll know pretty quickly whether or not, in my opinion, something positive will happen", Trump said.

Yes, people might think Trump's approach is unorthodox, abnormal, and amateurish, but I think this could all happen because of his approach.

Asked whether he would sign onto an AUMF as an alternative, Menendez said, "I'm not ready to give an authorization for use of military force to this President or any other one until I understand the path for peace is not attainable, and the threat continues to be a real challenge to the national security of the United States, and we have all of the intelligence on a robust debate in the Senate on such an AUMF".

This is a leader who really is an unknown personality. "I think that he's going to surprise on the upside, very much on the upside".

In recent weeks, though, Trump's enthusiasm has been tempered somewhat by the challenge of deal-making with such an unpredictable opponent.

It is unclear, however, under what terms North Korea would agree to in an effort to reduce its nuclear arsenal.

He went on to say that the objective of the summit would "be more meaningful with Russian Federation".

Trump initially touted the potential for a grand bargain with North Korea to rid itself of a nuclear missile programme that has advanced rapidly to threaten the United States, insisting he would swiftly achieve what previous U.S. administrations have failed to do.

Trump reiterated his promise Saturday that the U.S.

For Trump, a successful summit will give him a win on the worldwide stage. However, he took a U-turn soon and said the White House was proceeding with the preparations for the summit.

Trump told Secretary of State Mike Pompeo he had no intention of changing any of the USA policies on North Korea but he "needed to give North Korea room to negotiate", sources told The Journal.
