White House confirms time for historic Donald Trump-Kim Jong-un summit

White House confirms time for historic Donald Trump-Kim Jong-un summit

But one obvious thing is that Trump is easing up on his position on quick, complete, verifiable, irreversible dismantlement of the North's nuclear capability.

Mrs. Trump's decision not to go to Quebec is a departure from a year ago, when she made an worldwide summit debut at the G7 meeting in Italy and followed up at the forum of G20 industrialized and developing nations in Germany.

The White House confirmed the venue detail for the off-on 12 June summit, now back on having been called off two weeks ago by President Trump.

The White House says President Donald Trump's meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Un is set for 9 a.m. on June 12 in Singapore, which is 9 p.m. on June 11 on the U.S. East Coast.

Multiple US and N Korean teams are holding simultaneous meetings ahead of the Singapore Summit. We can go fast. We are going to start a process.

Donald Trump 'optimistic' ahead of one-on-one talks with Kim Jong
It's a dramatic departure for Trump, who kicked off 2018 bragging that his nuclear button is "much bigger" than Kim's. Trump has offered few details of what a framework for that process would look like.

During his 2017 trip last June, Rodman presented a book titled "Trump: The Art of the Deal" to North Korea's sports minister.

Singapore airspace will be restricted during the planned summit, said a notice to airmen posted by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on Wednesday.

Alternatively, Trump is toying with the idea of offering Kim a follow-up summit at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida - perhaps in the fall - if the two men hit it off. He said Japan would then normalize ties and provide economic aid as rewards for a North Korean commitment to both denuclearization and resolution of the abduction issue.

Apparent signs of appeasement on the part of Trump were also manifested in his comments on sanctions on the North.

Trump has been advised not to offer Kim any concessions, as the White House seeks to put the onus on the North Koreans to make the summit a success, one U.S. official said.

By 9 am local time on Friday, and it had upgraded to category 4 storm with speed of 140 miles per hour winds. The center of the storm was located about 555 miles south-southwest of the southern tip of Baja, California.

Rodman's last visit to North Korea was sponsored by the marijuana-themed cryptocurrency Pot Coin.

The President also clarified that North Korea's human rights record was not discussed during the meeting with Kim Yong-chol.

US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert has denied the US would pay for North Korea in Singapore and said Washington was not asking anyone else to either.

It is inevitable for the U.S. to be the main player in the nuclear crisis.
