Singapore says 'all systems go' for Trump-Kim summit

Kim and Trump are set to meet on Tuesday at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island and Trump is expected to stay at the Shangri-La during his visit to Singapore.

The president previously nicknamed Kim "Little Rocket Man," while the North Korean leader called Trump a "mentally deranged U.S. dotard". "But I feel really confident", Trump told reporters.

The highly-anticipated meeting between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Kim Jong Un is scheduled for next Tuesday.

Speaking before his departure from the G7 summit in Canada, Mr Trump said: "I feel that Kim Jong-un wants to do something great for his people. I think that he's going to surprise on the upside, very much on the upside", the president said. "When the government says, there is prosperity in terms of food and rice, we see it ourselves and see that there is a drought and there is no food for us", Kim said. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in the first days after the summit date was set, spoke of USA private investment in North Korea, should Kim agree to denuclearization. I also think I'll know whether or not it will happen fast. And if I think it won't happen, I'm not going to waste my time. "So, I think that could happen". We appreciate working together with North Korea.

"I think within the first minute I'll know".

"But I've said it many times, who knows?"

Kim, the 39-year-old founder of People for Successful Corean Reunification (PSCORE), escaped North Korea when he was 19 years old.

USA defense and intelligence officials have assessed the North to be on the threshold of having the capability to strike anywhere in the continental US with a nuclear-tipped missile - a capacity that Trump and other US officials have said they would not tolerate.

The Hong Kong-based impersonator, who goes by the name Howard X, has gained worldwide attention for his impressions of the North Korean leader in recent months. "They have no way to obtain information about what South Korea or the United States look like".

"We just got three hostages back", Trump said. "You don't know. This has not been done before at this level". "I mean, if you are a diplomat, you [would be] very, very focused on this truly historic opportunity to solve a nuclear crisis a standoff", Kristof adds. I think the G8 would be better, I think having Russian Federation back in would be a positive thing.

What Bolton meant by the Libya model was that the "U.S. seeks Pyongyang's quick, front-loaded dismantlement and shipment overseas of its nuclear apparatuses, as Libya did in the early 2000s", said Lee.
