Some Facts About the Upcoming Kim-Trump Summit

Some Facts About the Upcoming Kim-Trump Summit

The 70-year-old, who was not on the North Korea trip, was active in Trump's feud with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over the weekend. Again accusing the longtime United States ally of unfair trade practices, Trump added: "Then Justin acts hurt when called out!"

This combination of file photos show U.S. President Donald Trump, left, in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington on May 16, 2018, and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a meeting in North Korea, in the photo provided on May 18, 2018.

Similar scenes were seen on Sunday when Kim and Trump arrived in the city, and when Kim went to meet Lee.

Trump's early exit will be his second from a summit in just a few days. Trump traveled to Singapore from Canada, where he attended a meeting with other world leaders.

Trump and Kim are staying in separate hotels in the famous Orchard Road area of Singapore, dotted with high-rise luxury apartment blocks, offices and glittering shopping malls.

As I recently wrote, while certain sanctions on North Korea are discretionary, a key 2016 law specifically obligates the president to sanction people and entities complicit in human rights abuses in North Korea - not just those involved in weapons proliferation - and the Trump administration legally can't suspend sanctions more broadly unless North Korea implements key human rights reforms.

Although gaps remain over what denuclearisation would entail, Trump sounded a positive note in a lunch meeting with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

"The entire world is watching the historic summit between (North Korea) and the United States of America, and thanks to your honest efforts. we were able to complete the preparations for the historic summit", Kim told Lee through an interpreter.

The MFA also said Lee will meet President Trump separately on Monday.

There's excitement surrounding the summit but also skepticism that the North will relinquish a nuclear weapons program it spent decades building despite crushing sanctions.

President Donald Trump has arrived on Singapore's Sentosa Island for his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Experts believe the North is close to being able to target the entire USA mainland with its nuclear-armed missiles, and while there's deep skepticism that Kim will quickly give up those hard-won nukes, there's also some hope that diplomacy can replace the animosity between the US and the North.

The official said Trump and Kim would hold a one-on-one meeting on Tuesday that could last up to two hours.

The Associated Press reports Trump was originally scheduled to depart early Wednesday morning, however he will now leave Tuesday night after a day of meetings with Kim and other leaders of North Korea.

United States and North Korean officials were still meeting on the eve of the summit in an effort to bridge the gap between the two countries on how to substantively achieve North Korean denuclearization.
