Kim, Trump arrive in Singapore for landmark summit

Just six months after trading threats about their respective "nuclear buttons", President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un are set to meet in Singapore on Tuesday morning (Monday night in the US, which is 12 hours behind).

Some observers insist that it's the beginning of the complete denuclearisation of North Korea.

Turns out, North Korea's Dear Leader is not staying at the Fullerton Hotel as initially posited by The Washington Post.

As many foreign policy experts, religious leaders, and human rights advocates have pointed out, denuclearizing the Korean peninsula is a critical security goal.

"I think things could work out very nicely", Trump said in a Tuesday meeting with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

After months of saber-rattling that gave way to flirtation, President Trump finally met face-to-face with Kim Jong Un at a hotel on Sentosa Island in Singapore on Tuesday morning.

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 is reportedly departing from Singapore earlier than expected after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un set a deadline of sorts for their highly anticipated summit.

Trump and Kim planned to meet one-on-one for most of an hour- joined only by translators.

Trump's early exit will be his second from a summit in just a few days.

In an interview with BBC (who really got our geography wrong yesterday), Minister of Foreign Affairs Vivian Balakrishnan confirmed what everyone was guessing a week ago: Singapore is indeed picking up the hotel tab for the North Korean contingent here.

For one, when Harvey asked, "Name a reason you think Steve Harvey is a good kisser?" Kanye immediately shouted out, "Lips". Kim said: "I feel bad because they're sneaking in the room in the middle of the night".

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

Experts believe the North is on the brink of being able to target the entire United States 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 USA and the North. "In light of how many flimsy agreements the United States has made in previous years, this President will ensure that no potential agreement will fail to adequately address the North Korean threat".
