  • Flight from Pyongyang lands in Singapore ahead of North Korean leader’s arrival

More than 1,000 people paid for a photo with the Kim-Trump lookalikes over the weekend. He said he thinks "it's going to work out very well".

The intelligence file on North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reveals some unflattering things about the despot, including the fact he was a real jerk while still in school.

President Donald Trump has arrived in Singapore where he will meet with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un.

Trump was greeted by Singapore Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan.

Kim and his delegation arrived aboard an Air China 747, according to Singapore's Straits Times.

In May, Trump announced he would meet Kim in Singapore on June 12 in a tweet that said "We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!"

At the hotel lobby, grim-faced North Korean security guards warned other hotel guests not to take pictures as Kim walked to his Mercedes Benz limousine.

Earlier on Sunday evening, Trump arrived at Singapore's Paya Lebar Air Base and is now staying at the Shangri-La Hotel. But they hope the US won't ignore North Korea's advanced chemical and biological weapons program, as well as more conventional artillery which remains a threat to the region.

In authoritarian North Korea, where Kim's family has passed on power through three generations, images propagated by state media such as the Korea Central News Agency, the Rodong Sinmun newspaper and Korean Central Television, help build a leader's legitimacy and glorify his status.

UN Security Council Resolution 2270 forbids loaning aircraft, ships and crew to North Korea, but Beijing apparently had US approval.

"The worry we have is the president will be so eager for quote "an agreement" that it won't protect the security, first and foremost, of the United States", Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., told NPR on Tuesday.

Kim's chief of staff was spotted in Beijing last week after wrapping up talks with USA officials in Singapore which had included security discussions.

"Prime Minister Lee and Chairman Kim discussed Singapore-DPRK relations, developments in the DPRK and regional developments, including the recent positive developments on the Korean Peninsula", the statement reads.

Earlier, in March, the North Korean leader had made his first trip overseas to China and in April he became the first North Korean leader to step foot in South Korea where he met South Korean President Moon Jae-in at Panmunjom on their mutual border. The impersonator, who would give only his stage name Howard X, said he was held by immigration authorities for two hours before being released and told to steer clear of summit venues.

"The entire world is watching the historic summit between (North Korea) and the United States of America, and thanks to your honest efforts ... we were able to complete the preparations for the historic summit", Kim told Lee through an interpreter.

Trump said Saturday he was embarking on a "mission of peace", as he departed the Group of Seven meeting in Canada to fly to the summit site in Singapore.

North Korean leaders have been known to travel with an iron-clad security detail when on trips, even to the North Korea's countryside to inspect facilities. Moon later proposed a tri-lateral meeting to put a formal end to the Korean war after the summit.
