Donald Trump-Kim Jong Un Singapore summit: Here’s what they said

Donald Trump-Kim Jong Un Singapore summit: Here’s what they said

The president is set to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Singapore.

The two men emerged from a luxury hotel in Singapore shortly before 1 p.m. on Tuesday for a brief outdoor stroll, unaccompanied by interpreters.

- They first met face to face with only translators at their sides.

In an apparent bid to lower soaring expectations fueled partly by himself, Trump has already signaled the possibility that it may take more than one meeting with Kim to seal an ultimate agreement.

When pressed for a breakdown on the summit expenses, he said, "I think if you calculate the price of everything in this world, you will miss out the really important things". Laboriously negotiated past nuclear deals, considered breakthroughs at the time, broke down on North Korea's extreme sensitivity to allowing in outsiders to look at whether they're dismantling their nuclear facilities, many of which are thought to be hidden.

He added that Singapore's efforts to host the summit would go down in history if the meeting was successful.

Trump has also raised the possibility of further summits.

Rodman is one of the few westerners to have met the North Korean leader on visits to the capital city of Pyongyang.

The interview, which will be conducted at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island in Singapore, will air in full on FNC's Hannity on Tuesday at 9PM ET.

He was greeted by Singapore's foreign minister, Vivian Balakrishnan, who posted a picture on Twitter of him shaking hands with Kim and the message: "Welcomed Chairman Kim Jong Un, who has just arrived in Singapore". He flew in from Canada, where he had cut short his attendance at the Group of Seven (G-7) summit.

It was hard to hear the president and Kim over the constant clicking of camera shutters, and it remains unclear precisely what he was referring to.

Describing Kim with affection, Rodman said the North Korean leader loves to have a good time, wants his people to enjoy their lives, and would love to visit the United States.

Some people were grumbling in the wealthy city-state because of traffic jams caused by the summit and the cost of hosting two leaders with massive security needs.

In 2015, it served as the location for the meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou.

Mr Trump has described the Singapore summit as a "one-time shot" for peace.

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. "He won't have that opportunity again". "And if I think it won't happen, I'm not going to waste my time".
