But Trump - for whom a major accomplishment would bolster his position ahead of midterm elections in November - baffled observers when he said he did not think he had to prepare "very much" for the summit.

He appeared at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics alongside a Donald Trump lookalike, and the duo are set to take part in an alternative summit ahead of Tuesday's meeting between the USA president and Kim.

There's just no recent precedent for the gamble Kim Jong Un is taking.

After trying to smooth over tensions with the six other leaders at the summit in Canada, Trump spoke optimistically about his looming meeting and said he believed it would go well, reports Daily Mail.

"I went there to make sure that everything was spick and span and in place, no last minute spoilers or difficulties", Balakrishnan said.

Asked how he would be able to make such a distinction, he said: "My touch, my feel". You know the way they say you know if you like somebody in the first five seconds? "I think very quickly I'll know whether or not something good is going to happen".

"I will be on a mission of peace and will carry in my heart the hearts of millions of people, all over the world".

Donald Trump issued a warning to Kim Jong-un that he was offering a "one shot" deal for North Korea to denuclearise and re-enter the worldwide community. "I told him (police officer) that I. would never do this in Singapore because it is against your rules to protest", Mr Lee told The Associated Press. But there's also a recognition that optimism at what might be a once-in-a-generation chance for peace must be tempered with a clear-eyed acknowledgement of what North Korea is aiming to get out of its turn from provocation to diplomacy.

Trump is expected to meet with Kim, the first such meeting between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader, on Tuesday at the luxury Capella Hotel.

"Even if they cheat on handing over nuclear weapons, possibly cheat on freezing uranium production, there can be a certain amount of cheating and we can still be better off", Kristof says. "We're going in with a very positive spirit".

A Chinese private jet that discreetly landed in North Korea has departed Sunday en route to Singapore about an hour after its arrival in the communist state, a flight route-tracking website showed.

In other remarks made during Abe's visit, Trump said he had been talking to North Korea about signing a possible peace agreement, and appeared knowledgeable about its significance. However, the United States president noted that G8 format was more meaningful than G7, adding that he would be positive if Russian Federation returns in the bloc.

Getting a legally binding peace treaty is unlikely in Singapore because "you have to disentangle a lot of United Nations security issues, Security Council issues", said Christopher Hill, a former lead US nuclear negotiator with the North, who also noted that "as a practical matter, China has to be there". Trump wants Kim to dismantle his nuclear arsenal entirely, thus giving up his only real deterrent and bargaining chip.

Then, Trump followed up with another Trudeau-targeted tweet, calling him "meek and mild" during the summit in Montreal and also "very dishonest and weak".
