President Trump predicted Saturday that he will know nearly immediately when meeting Kim Jong Un whether the North Korean dictator is serious about negotiating a nuclear deal, suggesting his intuition is enough to size up the leader of the worlds most opaque authoritarian regime. North and South Korean soldiers glare at each other across the line that Kim Jong Un historically stepped across for his recent summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
"Just my touch, my feel".
In late April, 12 lanky male bodyguards made global headlines after they surrounded Kim Jong Un's Mercedes-Benz vehicle and jogged alongside it whenever the North Korean leader moved across the border. "The regime is employing a wait-and-see approach to the issue, which makes sense from their point of view". "I think very quickly I'll know whether or not something good is going to happen".
The Singapore coastal hotel where Mr Trump and Mr Kim will meet is overseen by a wealthy Singapore family. Their relationship began after Trump's election with a long period of mutual threats and abuse.
They'll arrive to "summit fever" across the island territory - with locals selling everything from drinks and tacos to gold medallions to mark Trump's historic huddle with the hermit king. "It will never be there again", the president said.
"They know [those countries are more prosperous and developed], but they don't know at what level and how different the countries are".
During a promotional event dubbed the "real" Trump-Kim summit, the men waved at shoppers as they walked through the crowded Bugis Junction mall. I think they are starting to be committed to a much more fair trade situation for the United States, because it has been treated very, very unfairly....
South Korea media outlets are reporting that Kim will likely stay at the St. Regis Singapore hotel, where his close aide has been based as he leads a North Korean advance team arranging security and logistics details.
"We appreciate everything what is going on". "I felt as if I was back in time, back in the period immediately after the Second World War when worldwide military tribunals and other investigations were conducted into the Nazi horrors".
When New York Times journalist Nicholas Kristof spent five days inside North Korea last September, he reported "the risk of war is greater than you may believe". Who knows? May not work out.
At the same time, Trump said there was a "good chance" the meeting would not work out and claimed he would know nearly immediately after the start of talks how the situation would progress.
"He could take that nation with those great people and truly make it great", Trump said. But if not, "at least well have met each other, well have seen each other, hopefully well have liked each other. I would say that would be the minimal and the maximum, I think you know the answer". "I think that Chairman Kim Jong Un is prepared to do that as well", he said.
More than 2 million USA citizens travel to China each year, and about 175,000 Americans hold Chinese resident visas. The China incidents have raised fears that unexplained incidents that started in Cuba in 2016 have spread to China.
Trump had already said he would not hesitate to shut countries out of the United States market if they retaliate to his tariffs. Trump left the summit early for Singapore, where he will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next week.

Steven Mnuchin, Treasury secretary, speaks during a Bloomberg Television interview in Washington , D.C., March 7, 2018. Rebuffing the criticism down the line, Mr Trump reportedly shot back: " Didn't you guys burn down the White House? ".
