Trump meets Kim in landmark Singapore summit

Trump 'Excitement in the air' ahead of Kim meeting

The leaders were later joined by their senior advisers for bilateral talks, with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton sitting to the left of Trump.

"I'm very optimistic that we will have a successful outcome from our meetings tomorrow", he said.

US President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un are in Singapore ahead of their critical meet on June 12.

Pompeo appeared to address that sort of North Korean concern on Monday, saying "President Trump recognizes Chairman Kim's desire for security and is prepared to ensure a North Korea free of weapons of mass destruction is also a secure North Korea".

But without a full transcript, it could have been easy for Trump and Kim to walk away from their meeting believing they came to two different agreements.

It marked the first time in history that a North Korean leader was meeting with a sitting US president.

A passenger eventually called the police, saying there was a knife-wielding person on board and that people were bleeding. The attack occurred in vehicle No. 12 of the 16-car train, which was carrying some 880 passengers.

Following their meeting, President Trump will hold a media availability with reporters as Kim Jong Un departs back to North Korea. It's aimed at settling a standoff over Pyongyang's nuclear arsenal.

They first met Tuesday for about 40 minutes alone, except for their translators, before bringing in delegations from their respective sides for a working lunch.

"This guy wants to be around the world, he wants to come to America, he wants to enjoy his life, he wants his people to enjoy this life", said Rodman, adding that Kim is "not a dumb man".

Mr Trump said he felt "really great" about the meeting.

With a handshake, the leaders of the United States and North Korea broke through decades of antagonism, signaling a willingness to stake their reputations on forging a new relationship between the two nations.

"I think better than anybody could've expected", Trump told reporters at the time, as Kim smiled beside him.

According to TMZ , the star had "a known health condition" relating to his heart and there will be no autopsy carried out. Boyd released two albums following his AGT victory, My American Dream in 2009 and My Christmas Wish in 2013.

With Trump, however, Rodman said, things changed because he understood that people of North Korea have a heart and a soul.

Trump and Kim did not respond to a reporter who asked if they discussed Otto Warmbier.

He talked about the pair achieving "tremendous success together" and predicts that "it will be successful". Among the key points in the document was North Korea's commitment to "work towards the complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula".

"Sanctions will remain until North Korea completely and verifiably eliminates its weapons of mass destruction programs".

President Barack Obama summarily brushed off an attempt by former basketball star Dennis Rodman to broker a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the former basketball star said Monday night.

Yet the top USA diplomat added Trump is ready to offer "unique" guarantees to ease the regime's concerns about giving up a nuclear arsenal that provides a deterrent against foreign adversaries while also serving as a key point of national pride. He was was sent home from North Korea in a coma and died soon after.
