Dennis Rodman to Travel to Singapore for North Korea Summit

The first session of the summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was joined by only the two leaders' respective translators, but they were joined by their aides at the expanded bilateral meeting.

On Monday night's The Ingraham Angle, Wallace said that it's "almost surreal" to see Trump and Kim, "who just months ago were launching verbal ICBMs at each other", standing together and shaking hands. The basketball great also was a contestant on Trump's NBC show, "Celebrity Apprentice", in 2013.

Perhaps he'll offer to withdraw the 28,000 American troops stationed in South Korea, Haenle said, or to pull back the so-called nuclear umbrella of protection Washington offers allies South Korea and Japan.

On Sunday, he accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of stabbing the United States "in the back".

Lee added that while the government has been "cost conscious" in its approach to spending for the summit it has also worked to ensure that all operational requirements for the meeting - especially in terms of security - have been met. Cameras followed them from one meeting to another, giving the world glimpses of their body language.

There has been widespread speculation about Kim's rare trip out of the North, where he enjoys supreme power.

0053 Kim has just exited his armored limousine and entered the hotel doors. A throng of journalists stood outside the hotel.

"The fact that we prepared this in two weeks, this adds to logistics demands by officers who worked around the clock", Shanmugam said at a security briefing on Sunday.

Shanmugam said that four people have been turned away at Singapore's immigration checkpoints in the lead-up to the summit. Trump said after a meeting with North Korean envoy Kim Yong-chul at the Whitehouse. Beyond the impact on both leaders' political fortunes, the summit could shape the fate of countless people - the citizens of impoverished North Korea, the tens of millions living in the shadow of the North's nuclear threat, and millions more worldwide.

Historian Robert Dallek, noting parallels and differences between the 1972 Nixon visit and this week's events, said, "We weren't going to ask them [the Chinese] to change governments or cut back on developing armaments of any kind".

Trump's supporters have floated the idea that forging such a treaty, which would need a signoff from China and South Korea, would deserve the Nobel Peace Prize.

The hope is Mr. Kim will then, in the spirit of amity, sign on to the much tougher work of abandoning his nuclear arms.

But he has since lowered expectations, saying the talks would be more about starting a relationship with Kim for a negotiating process that would take more than one summit.
