Tearful Dennis Rodman: 'I Knew Things Were Going to Change'

Trump Says That Without Otto Warmbier, North Korea Summit Wouldn't Have Happened

Trump Says That Without Otto Warmbier, North Korea Summit Wouldn't Have Happened

"Whatever it takes", he said.

Rodman, sporting a black t-shirt advertising a cryptocurrency he is involved with, said he was unsure whether he would get to meet with Kim - a man he has previously described as a "friend for life".

Though when pressed later in the news conference by ABC News chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl, Trump claimed it was actually discussed "at length".

When asked if there was a discussion of pulling the roughly 28,000 USA troops out of South Korea, Trump said the topic never came up. "It's rough. It's rough in a lot of places, by the way".

"I think that he really wants to do a great job for North Korea". I got so many death threats.

But they were soon smiling and holding each other by the arm, before Trump guided Kim to the library where they held a meeting with only their interpreters.

The language used around the denuclearisation clause is thought to favour North Korea's view that the entire Korean Peninsula needs to denuclearise, likely including U.S. forces in South Korea.

Former Chicago Bulls star Dennis Rodman openly wept on television in a live interview from Singapore as President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met for the first time.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, meanwhile, said on Monday that preparatory talks had moved "quite rapidly", with the USA prepared to provide North Korea security assurances that are "unique" from what it has previously offered.

The documents released Monday show that Ivanka Trump earned $3.9 million from the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. Further, she earned several fixed payments a year from companies related to the Trump brand, totaling about $1.5 million.

Trump and Kim shake hands ahead of historic meeting
Mr Lee, it said, complimented "the bold and admirable decision" by Mr Kim and Mr Trump to come together for the summit . You would start at least a dialogue, because, you know, as a deal person, I have done very well with deals".

Kim Jong Un goes for surprise nighttime walk ahead of summit
The North Korean leader said he is interested in close work with the U.S. president, the Straits Times newspaper reports. Trump, who arrived Sunday night, tweeted Monday morning: "Great to be in Singapore , excitement in the air!"

Trump said in his press conference that US sanctions against North Korea will remain in effect as the country takes steps to dismantle its nuclear program.

There was speculation throughout the day over whether Kim Jong Un had taken his private jet- an Ilyushin IL-62M - from Pyongyang, but official photos released by the Singaporean Ministry of Communications and Information showing Kim meeting Balakrishnan on the tarmac appear to reveal that he flew to Singapore aboard an Air China Boeing 747.

The world's media had a 90 minute Q and A with Donald Trump on North Korea. "The other alternative is not a good alternative".

Balakrishnan also said that the Singapore government was footing the hotel bill for Kim Jong Un and his delegation who are staying at the St Regis hotel.

One of the world's most reclusive leaders, Kim visited Singapore's waterfront on Monday, smiling and waving to onlookers, adding to a more affable image that has emerged since his April summit with South Korean leader Moon Jae-in.

The former Central Intelligence Agency chief said US sanctions will remain in place until Washington verifies the North's denuclearization efforts. "I think that very quickly I'll know whether or not something good is going to happen", Trump predicted Saturday.

President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un shared a historic handshake as they meet for the first time.

"We're going to have a great discussion", Trump said. "Thank you very much".
