Trump, Kim Jong Un Arrive in Singapore Ahead of Summit

Both President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un arrived in Singapore on Sunday, just ahead of their historic summit later this week.

President Trump landed on Sunday evening, local time, alongside Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, National Security Advisor John Bolton, White House chief of staff John Kelly, and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, according to reports.

Kim and North Korean official Kim Yong Choi arrived just before Trump and were greeted by Singapore’s foreign minister, Vivian Balakrishnan, before heading to the St. Regis Hotel, where he will be staying during his visit.

Trump is expected to stay at the nearby Shangri-La Hotel.

Despite the controversy that has surrounded the summit, both men are expected to meet on Tuesday at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island, just off of the southern coast of Singapore, to discuss the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

The meeting will begin at 9:00 a.m. local time.

President Trump has said that he does not believe a deal on nuclear weapons will be reached at this first summit, classifying it as a “getting-to-know-you-meeting, plus.”

“I’ve never said it happens in one meeting. You’re talking about years of hostility, years of problems, years of, really, hatred between so many different nations. But I think you’re going to have a really positive result in the end. Not from one meeting,” he said.

If Tuesday’s “getting-to-know-you” meeting goes well and the two leaders “hit it off,” officials have hinted that President Trump may invite Kim to visit his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida for a second summit.

      You must be a liberal as that is what they have been wanting. I don’t know what will happen but I have a good feeling about Pres. Trump’s ability to either get something done or walk away which is what Obama could not do with Iran. I don’t believe we will see billions in case delivered in cash to NK. Just wish our country could unite enough to want to see success but libs seems to love their politics so much more than our great Country.
