Trumps remarks came after an uncomfortable overnight visit to the G7 where he and the other world leaders struggled to bridge their differences on trade and other matters.

He said the police officers who stopped him at Singapore's Changi Airport searched his bags and questioned him for about two hours before letting him go. "I think the USA was played by North Korea, and to some extent by South Korea", Kristof said when we met at the New York Times office this week.

"I think within the first minute, I'll know", Trump said during a free-wheeling press conference before he departed the ongoing G-7 talks for the Singapore summit with Kim. "But I feel really confident", Trump told reporters. It's like the way they say you know if you're going to like somebody in the first 5 seconds.

"I think I'll know pretty quickly whether or not, in my opinion, something positive will happen", said Trump, who's known for getting physical with leaders like French President Emmanuel Macron. "I think the G-8 would be better".

In his tweet, Trump seemed to suggest that Kim would have one chance to prove his seriousness about denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, implying that North Korea has a "one-time opportunity" to seek peace with the United States.

"This is a leader who really is an unknown personality", Trump added of Kim. The top USA diplomat declared that "Chairman Kim shares the objectives with the American people" amid talk of a grand bargain that could see North Korean disarmament met with a massive influx of outside aid. And we appreciate everything that's going on.


That makes him optimistic that the talks between Mr Trump and Mr Kim will produce lasting change.

"So far so good", Trump said.

In their letter, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Robert Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called for any agreement with North Korea to meet five key points: that all weapons of mass destruction be removed or dismantled; that there be no uranium enrichment or plutonium reprocessing; that it end all ballistic missile testing; that it allow "anytime, anywhere" inspections of its facilities; and that a deal be permanent.

A half-mile away at the Shangri-La Hotel, where the USA side will stay, Secret Service agents, in a casual uniform of khaki slacks and dark polo shirts, milled about the lobby. North Korea spent decades developing nuclear weapons, culminating in the test of a thermonuclear device in 2017.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in the first days after the summit date was set, spoke of USA private investment in North Korea, should Kim agree to denuclearization. However, the U.S. president noted that G8 format was more meaningful than G7, adding that he would be positive if Russian Federation returns in the bloc.

Trump and Kim can also silence skeptics in Washington, Seoul and Tokyo, Yun wrote, by producing "a clear timeline for the ultimate goal: the disablement and dismantlement of all North Korean nuclear and ICBM facilities, material and devices".

After cutting short his participation over the icy reception, Trump veered within hours from espousing a great relationship with the US allies to tweeting that his host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, had been "Very dishonest & weak" in post-summit remarks.
