Kim summit: Singapore meeting between U.S. and North Korean leaders nears

The two clasped hands for a long while Tuesday as they posed for photos in front of a row of US and North Korean flags. The two posed for pictures briefly before walking over to an awning and appeared quite cordial in their greeting, both smiling as they shook hands for a second time.

"I feel really", Trump told reporters. "We can go fast, we can go slowly", Trump said. "A tremendous success. We will have a great relationship".

Kim smiled as he heard the translator interpret the president's remarks, before weighing in with a brief statement of his own.

Kim says through an interpreter that it "was not easy to get here" and that there "were obstacles but we overcame them to be here".

Singapore's foreign minister Vivian Balakrishnan tweeted a selfie with Kim on the surprise walkabout late Monday.

Kim smiled broadly Sunday evening as he met with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

They will first enter a one-on-one meeting with translators only, the first meeting ever between a USA president and North Korea's leader - and Trump's first opportunity to gauge Kim's willingness to negotiate on dismantling his nuclear weapons program. "And it's my honor to be involved".

The circus-like atmosphere might be amusing if the stakes weren't so high. He also hosted Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

The White House has not said whether the president will raise issue with North Korea's dismal human rights record, but the president took time in the hours before his meeting to take a swipe at critics of the sit-down.

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.

He's also repeatedly expressed his support for a meeting between Trump and Kim - even offering to facilitate it or serve as an ambassador of sorts.

And that's what the left wants, just so President Trump doesn't have a victory or get re-elected. Boy, do we need that now!" "I'd like to punch him in the face!"

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. Her earlier trip to South Korea in January triggered a media frenzy. And Secretary of State Mike Pompeo sought to keep expectations for the summit in check.
