"I think we can presume that North Korea made more demands to Singapore than the United States did in terms of security".

Speaking today before he left the G7 summit in Canada and head to Singapore, Trump described the summit as a "mission of peace".

Even now you can get a sense of the tension that has simmered since 1953 by visiting the dividing line within the Demilitarized Zone, near where the armistice was signed.

"I have a clear objective", Trump said, "but I have to say it's going to be something that will always be spur of the moment". I also think I'll know whether or not it will happen fast.

The standard thinking goes that he needs quick help to stabilize and then rebuild an economy that has suffered amid a decades-long pursuit of nuclear bombs, and that the North Koreans see a unique chance to win concessions, legitimacy and protection from a meeting with a highly unconventional US president who's willing to consider options past American leaders would not.

Trump to stick with hard line on trade as G7 showdown looms
The move follows a USA decision to impose tariffs on imports of Mexican steel and aluminum purchases, which took effect on Friday. Mexico's list of products that will be subject to the charges also includes US steel plates, bars, rods and rolled steel.

"Just my touch, my feel". "You know, the way they say that you know if you're going to like somebody in the first five seconds, you ever hear that one?"

"It's a one-time shot and I think it's going to work out very well", Trump told reporters during a lengthy press briefing at the conclusion of the G7 meeting in Quebec on Saturday afternoon.

"I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in, it would be good for the world".

Trump and his lieutenants - with his hawkish national security adviser, John Bolton, a notable exception - have jumped on comments like this to frame the summit and used them to bolster their own direct, and extensive, private talks with senior North Koreans. He called Kim an "unknown personality".

If it were a protracted process, Trump would stop enforcing sanctions against Pyongyang, and South Korea and China would return to unconditional subsidization of the Kim regime, Lee said.

CNN sources say Trump is considering dozens of new pardons
District Judge Michael Hogan initially gave Dwight Hammond three months and his son Steven a year and-a-day behind bars. He made it clear Trump's legal team would combat any effort to force the president to testify in front of a grand jury.

"We're going to raise every issue, every issue will be raised", he said. "People don't know much about him". It is hard to credibly suggest progress on weapons proliferation can be durable or verifiable if North Korea remains a completely closed and totalitarian state. The president appeared exhausted and subdued, and he demeaned the press corps, calling some USA news outlets "unbelievably dishonest" and "fake news" before aides pulled him away to start his journey to Southeast Asia.

"But I've said it many times, who knows?" A planned summit between Trump and Kim will be held in Singapore on June 12. Instead, Trump acknowledged, the summit is unlikely to achieve a major breakthrough, stating that at minimum he would like to "start a dialogue" with Kim.

But as he embarked for Singapore he changed his tune, calling it a "one-time shot" and adding he will know "within the first minute" whether an agreement will be possible.

"That's what you learn at the Wharton School of Finance", said President Trump.

Last year it carried out by far its most powerful nuclear test to date and launched missiles capable of reaching the U.S. mainland, sending tensions soaring to a level unseen in years as a newly-elected Trump traded threats of war and colorful personal insults with Kim, with Trump dubbed a "dotard" and Kim "Little Rocket Man".
