Trump 'absolutely' would invite Kim Jong Un to the White House

Journalists waited outside the St. Regis Hotel in Singapore on Monday where North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is staying before the summit

Basketball star and improbable North Korean envoy Dennis Rodman broke down in tears live on television Tuesday as he recounted the hostility he faced for meeting dictator Kim Jong Un.

Trump first announced there would be "a signing" shortly after midday, during a stroll with Kim around the hotel grounds.

For his part, Trump appeared exceedingly optimistic about the ongoing talks.

As the two flags hung side-by-side in the backdrop for the first time ever, both Kim and Trump expressed hope that their summit would be fruitful.

"We will make sure that every dollar is spent appropriately", he said. Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) mentioned that the summit is being held "under the great attention and expectation of the whole world".

President Trump and Kim Jong Un arrive in Singapore for historic United States-North Korea summit; Senator Lindsey Graham shares his perspective on 'Sunday Morning Futures'. The language of the agreement involves North Korea committing to complete denuclearization and long-lasting peace in exchange for unspecified "security guarantees" from the United States.

Speaking through his translator, Mr Kim said it was "not easy" to get here. I think better than anybody could have expected. But no one can credibly suggest that a durable or verifiable denuclearization of the Korean peninsula can be achieved when North Korea remains a completely closed and totalitarian state. Last week, Trump told reporters that Rodman had not been invited to the summit, but praised him as a "nice guy" and great rebounder.

The leaders will meet on Tuesday on the resort island of Sentosa and talks are expected to centre on ending the North's nuclear weapons and missile programmes in return for diplomatic and economic incentives.

Before Mr. Trump stepped up to the podium on Tuesday, the gathered media were shown a promotional video, first in Korean and then in English, touting the rapidly unfurling diplomatic process between the Kim regime and South Korea and the U.S. The narration and images portrayed the tension which had manifested over the course of the a year ago, with missile launches and military maneuvers, but then shifted its focus to the future, saying "the light of hope can burn bright".

The leaders of North Korea and the US on Tuesday in Singapore signed a joint declaration reaffirming Pyongyang's commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, and committing Washington to security guarantees in return.

"We overcame all kinds of skepticism and speculations about this summit and I believe that this is good for the peace", he said.

Pompeo laid out some of the US cards on Monday, saying the administration was sticking to its demand for the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the North.

He said if diplomacy fails to move in the right direction, the sanctions "will increase".
