Trump casts North Korea summit as 'one-time shot' for Kim Jong Un

"I am not overly surprised, to be honest, that they aren't talking about Trump, given that they have spent the past year and a half trashing him on a daily basis", said Ward.

Singapore is preparing for the historic summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un as more than 3,000 members of the media arrive. Even Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, generally averse to publicly criticizing fellow Republican leaders, warned the president last week that "you could get snookered".

The North Korean leader wants to achieve what his father and grandfather never could - a meeting with the USA president which would, in his eyes, cement his legitimacy.

He added: "I know that Kim Jong-un will work very hard to do something that has rarely been done before.Create peace and great prosperity for his land".

"At a minimum, I do believe, at least we'll have met each other", Trump said, adding later that "hopefully, we will have liked each other".

The standard thinking goes that he needs quick help to stabilize and then rebuild an economy that has suffered amid a decades-long pursuit of nuclear bombs, and that the North Koreans see a unique chance to win concessions, legitimacy and protection from a meeting with a highly unconventional USA president who's willing to consider options past American leaders would not.

Asked how hell read Kims intentions so quickly, the president replied: "My touch, my feel". You ever hear of that one?

We really think that North Korea will be a tremendous place in a very short period of time.

On the North Korea summit: "I'll be on a mission of peace, and we will carry in, really - in my heart, we're going to be carrying the hearts of millions of people, people from all over the world. I told him (police officer) that I. would never do this in Singapore because it is against your rules to protest", Mr Lee told The Associated Press. "Both the American as well as the North Koreans are pleased with the arrangements, we're all set to go and things will start happening within the next 24 hours".

In other remarks made during Abe's visit, Trump said he had been talking to North Korea about signing a possible peace agreement, and appeared knowledgeable about its significance. But it's unclear what the USA will get out of it. President Trump has said his goal is to get North Korea to agree to a complete denuclearization, and if not, he's prepared to impose harsh sanctions.

Mr Trump was able to portray North Korea's scramble to convince him to stay in the talks as a victory - but also to redefine the terms of the talks.

It may be the strangest feeling in decades to descend on the Korean Peninsula - a wave of optimism, and not always of the cautious variety, when it comes to North Korea and its nuclear bombs.

Still, it's a serious contrast to the days previous year when choice insults - Trump's "little rocket man" and Kim's "dotard" - were flying between Washington and Pyongyang during the North's nuclear and missile tests. For years Trump has complained about the US bearing too much of the burden for other countries' security, and as president he's sought to pull troops from Syria and other locations.

Then, Trump followed up with another Trudeau-targeted tweet, calling him "meek and mild" during the summit in Montreal and also "very dishonest and weak".
