There was also no sign of his sister, Kim Yo Jong, who has accompanied him to Singapore.

It behooves political leaders and opinion shapers in the United States and around the world to clarify now that something less than the flawless deal would nonetheless be recognized as a major win for everyone.

It was a far cry from past year when Trump threatened North Korea with "fire and fury" and mocked Kim as "little rocket man", and Kim denounced the USA president as the "mentally deranged U.S. dotard". The profit Trump earns from foreign officials who visit his various hotels and golf resorts don't amount to a bribe, argued DOJ lawyers, because there was no "corrupt intent" and because it's hard to prove that Trump's foreign policy decisions are influenced by his business holdings. The White House said Trump will address reporters on Tuesday before flying back to the US.

The White House also announced Trump would be leaving Singapore earlier than previously expected and holding a media availability ahead of his departure.

In his conference speech, he said North Korean leaders were driven by their desire to stay in power.

Both men walked to Trump's bullet-proof limousine, nicknamed "The Beast", and looked in at the rear seat, with Trump apparently showing Kim something inside.

Then they dined on beef short rib confit along with sweet and sour crispy pork. The pair are due to meet at a plush summit location on the island of Sentosa.

But, with cameras of the world's press trained on them, they displayed an initial atmosphere of bonhomie as they met on the verandah of the Capella, a refurbished 19th century British regimental officers' mess. On the eve of the meeting, weeks of preparation appeared to pick up in pace, with US and North Korean officials meeting throughout Monday at a Singapore hotel.

Drunk? Uber can tell by way you hold phone
At least that's according to a patent application spotted by CNN with the title "predicting user state using machine learning". Uber's planned AI feature could, in theory, let drivers easily scout neighborhoods to find drunken passengers for this goal .

The summit will already be a significant PR coup for North Korea, which has sought a face-to-face meeting with the sitting U.S. president for decades.

In a tweet on June 1, the scholar said, "This is the only way to advance if we are to avoid catastrophic failure of diplomacy or catastrophic success, ie, offering up too much to get a deal in Singapore".

Kim was heard telling Trump through a translator: "I think the entire world is watching this moment". Days earlier, in the North Korean village of Panmunjom, negotiations between diplomats from Washington and Pyongyang stalled when North Korea's vice-foreign minister Choe Son-hui said that denuclearization "should not be on the table for the Singapore summit" - a demand that would nullify the meeting's objective from the White House's perspective.

Reclusive North Korean leader Kim Jong Un went on an evening tour of Singapore on Monday, posing with city-state officials at a tropical garden before visiting an infinity pool atop a landmark waterfront hotel, to the surprise of guests.

As the cameras captured the moment, Trump quipped: "Very nice".

Shortly after a group of suited North Korean diplomats set out from their Singapore hotel on Monday for talks with US officials on the eve of a historic summit, a bigger group of North Koreans headed out in summery shirts for some shopping.

While the U.S.is ultimately hoping to make progress on denuclearization, North Korea is reportedly looking to gain security assurances, something U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters on Monday the administration is open to giving them - under the right conditions.

North Korea, however, has shown little appetite for surrendering nuclear weapons it considers vital to the survival of Kim's dynastic rule. Clapper recognises the security concerns of the North: "If we can figure out a way to lead North Korea's leaders to a place where they don't feel so threatened, we could move away from the cusp of a cataclysmic war".
