Don’t expect too much from Kim-Trump meeting - Dennis Rodman

The United States delegation at tomorrow's expanded bilateral meeting will include Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly, and National Security Advisor John Bolton.

Kim only started meeting with foreign leaders in recent months, slowly shedding a reputation as the reclusive ruler of the so-called Hermit Kingdom after summits with the Chinese and South Korean presidents. Trump said the meeting had been "very good".

Mr. Trump and Kim are meeting Tuesday in what the USA hopes will be the start of negotiations to eliminate North Korea's rapidly advancing nuclear weapons program. And he must resist the kind of impetuousness he displayed on his way to Singapore when he abruptly withdrew USA support for a joint communique negotiated with other nations at the Group of Seven meeting in Canada. "He's one of the best negotiators of all time and I'm looking forward to him adding to his historic success at the Singapore Summit", Rodman said.

A report by the state-run Korean Central News Agency said the summit would feature "wide-ranging and profound talks" and was being held "under the great attention and expectation of the whole world". In each case, the commitments crumbled, the promises proved meaningless, and North Korea continued its steady march toward acquiring nuclear warheads and the means to deliver them across the Pacific Ocean.

The summit has officially begun, with Trump and Kim shaking hands and posing for photographs.

Observers in the region warn that ultimatums over denuclearization could make military confrontation between the USA and North Korea even more likely, a situation Zhao Hai from China's Academy of Social Sciences described as a "down-spiral of security" that could turn into a nuclear "nightmare".

So you can only imagine how much Singapore is paying to have the North Korean leader and an entire army of bodyguards and government officials at the St. Regis.

Balakrishnan, who received Kim, the Chairman of North Korea's State Affairs Commission, on Sunday at Changi Airport, said the summit comes after 70 years of suspicion, war and diplomatic failures. Early in Trump's presidency, he raised eyebrows when he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a conference in Germany with only a Kremlin interpreter present. -North Korea summit in Singapore on June 11, 2018. Another Rodman trip to North Korea was sponsored by online betting company Paddy Power, but that firm severed ties with Rodman in 2013 after taking heat for associating with the North Korean regime.

"The fact that we have been chosen as the site of the meeting... says something about Singapore's relations with the parties - with America, with North Korea - (and) also our standing in the worldwide community", said Lee.

After a photo op early on Tuesday, Trump and Kim are set to have a one-on-one meeting in which they will only be accompanied by translators.

In addition, Dennis Rodman has recalled the sentiment and hostility he faced for meeting Kim Jong-un, saying that he even "got death threats".
