A Kim Jong-un lookalike said on Friday he was questioned on arrival in Singapore ahead of a historic US-North Korea summit and told to stay away from sites linked to the event. I think he would look at it very favorably.

"I think it's not a one-meeting deal. It's about attitude. It's about willingness to get things done", he said.

"If the summit does go well, will you be inviting North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to the United States", Daily Caller White House reporter Saagar Enjeti asked in the Rose Garden.

Pompeo said Trump was hopeful, but he is also going into the summit with his eyes wide open. Trump "is prepared to ensure a DPRK free of its weapons of mass destruction is also a secure North Korea", Pompeo said. "And we'll know that very quickly".

Singapore's foreign minister will make a two-day trip to Pyongyang starting Thursday, as preparations for the summit Trump-Kim summit in the city-state accelerate.

Afterwards, Mr Trump said that the two leaders were working together to improve trading relations and that Mr Abe promised new Japanese investment in the United States.

In his previous role as Central Intelligence Agency director, Pompeo told reporters Thursday, "there were few days that I left the Oval Office, after having briefed the president, that we didn't talk about North Korea". "Since the North and South Korean relationship is getting better, I may even be able to speak to them", said Choi. I think they've been preparing for a long time also.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo came back from meeting Kim in Pyongyang to describe the North Korean leader as "a smart guy who's doing his homework" for the summit, according to one U.S. official familiar with the matter. "It would be wonderful if it were".

It raises hopes for a landmark breakthrough in efforts to resolve the North Korean nuclear issue and bring lasting peace to the peninsula - goals that have eluded leaders for decades amid on-again, off-again talks involving the North.

Melania Trump plans to attend event with Gold Star families on Monday
Trump's absence from the public eye has prompted reactions, including jokes and conspiracy theories, from many social media users. The first lady remained in the hospital for five nights following the procedure prior to returning to the White House on May 19.

Trump said he had talked with the North's envoy on the matter.

For Richard Armitage, a former senior diplomat during the administration of George W. Bush, Tokyo runs a very real risk of finding itself out in the cold after the Trump-Kim talks.

This week was not the first time Giuliani has spoken out of turn on North Korea.

"They have to denuc - if they don't denuclearize that will not be acceptable, we can not take sanctions off", said President Trump. "And we can not take sanctions off".

A journalist suggested they could meet at Trump's country club in Florida, Mar-a-Lago.

Moon told Kim during a second inter-Korean summit in May that the North Korean leader had "gained a lot of popularity in South Korea recently", to which Kim responded: "That is a relief". The remark triggered a tirade against Bolton in North Korean media that ultimately led to Trump's canceling the summit before abruptly rescheduling it last week.

"The letter was just a greeting", Trump said.

Trump has made clear he prefers a bilateral deal to reduce the USA trade deficit with Japan, while Abe's government says multilateral agreements would be best.
