'North Korean media act against odds this time'

US President Donald Trump arrived in Singapore on Sunday to join North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for a historic summit which could lay the groundwork for ending a nuclear stand-off between the two countries and see Pyongyang dismantle its arsenal in return for economic help and security guarantees.

It will be the first time a sitting American president meets with a North Korean leader.

The official wasn't authorised to discuss the plans and insisted on anonymity.

When Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un meet in Singapore to discuss the parameters of a deal that would potentially denuclearize North Korea this week, they will be joined by NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman, for some freakish reason.

President Donald J. Trump will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m.

USA and North Korean officials huddled throughout Monday at the Ritz-Carlton hotel ahead of the sit-down aimed at resolving a standoff over Pyongyang's nuclear arsenal. News agency Associated Press cited a United States official saying that the two leaders will be accompanied by their translators during the one-on-one for about two hours. Trump had earlier tweeted about "excitement in the air!"

Trump and his senior aides have tried to manage expectations for the first meeting between sitting USA and North Korean leaders, saying the two sides are unlikely on Tuesday to sign a final pact to disarm the Asian country.

Unlike most other publications, USA Today had a different outlook of the Trump-Kim meeting.

The discussions between the United States and North Korea are ongoing and have moved more quickly than expected.

And until denuclearisation takes place, sanctions against North Korea would remain in place, he stressed. Positive results would do away with the need for South Korea to have to choose between "solidarity with the US" and stability in the Korean peninsula.

The secrecy of the North Korean leader's health is, apparently, paramount.

What has North Korea said?

The daylong summit will also include a working lunch and a larger meeting involving aides to both leaders, the White House said. In this week's edition of the magazine, The Economist depicts Trump swinging on a wrecking ball-Miley Cyrus-style-and in its report warns that Trump's strategy may work in favour of his "America First" policy but risks a lonely America in the long run.

Less than a week before the summit, Trump dismissed questions about his readiness, saying, "I don't think I have to prepare very much". The highly-anticipated talks had been put at risk when, on May 24, Trump announced he was canceling the meeting with Kim due to Pyongyang's hostile rhetoric.

Pompeo, who shifted to his current role in the spring after serving as Trump's Central Intelligence Agency director, spent Monday morning preparing with his top advisers, aides said. Add North Korea as an interest to stay up to date on the latest North Korea news, video, and analysis from ABC News. The president wants the complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantling of his nuclear weapons program. Rodman told reporters at Changi airport that he came to Singapore "to see what's going on" and that he hopes "that things turn out to be well for everyone in the world".

But beating expectations in a face-to-face meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will be hard - because Trump has set the bar so high.

The White House said it does not believe there is any cause for concern about getting an accurate description of the two men's words. Trump left the summit early, and as he flew to Singapore, he tweeted that he was yanking the US out of the group's traditional closing statement.

His New Year speech - the one that kick-started this diplomatic process - was all about North Korea's strategy of building the economy having achieved the goal of becoming a nuclear power.

"Just my touch, my feel", Trump replied. "That's what I do".

In any case, the Trump administration has no choice.

With South Korea scrambling to mediate, the two sides worked through the hiccup and got the summit back on track.
