Tearful Dennis Rodman: 'I Knew Things Were Going to Change'

China's foreign ministry embraced the historic summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un Tuesday, expressing support for the "equal talks" and praising the leaders for "creating a new history" in Singapore.

"They may be able to pull rabbits out of a hat that the rest of us conventional diplomats would not have been able to do", he said.

"People are going to be very impressed and people are going to be very happy and we are going to take care of a very unsafe problem for the world", Trump said. It was the first time that leaders from both sides met since Taiwan's separation from the mainland in 1949. Top of the line. "We're going now for a signing".

Kim has rejected calls to unilaterally give up his weapons in return for economic aid, and instead has proposed a step-by-step denuclearization process.

President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un shared a historic handshake as they met for the first time.

Entering their meeting, Trump said that he "feels really great".

In brief remarks this morning to reporters before their private meeting, Trump said he expected to have a "great discussion".

The pair shook hands, held talks together and ate lunch accompanied by advisers. "It's my honor, and we're going to have a terrific relationship".

"The entire world is focusing on the historic summit between the DPRK and the U.S., and thanks to your honest efforts. we were able to complete the preparations for the historic summit", Mr Kim told Mr Lee through an interpreter. The past worked as fetters on our limbs, and the old prejudices and practices worked as obstacles on our way forward. "But we overcame all of them and we are here today".

The "madman" comment also came after a historic televised statement from Kim, in which the North Korean leader called Trump a "mentally deranged USA dotard".

Ms Leong added both found it hard to hide their nervousness once they were seated, with Trump displaying a slanted smile, and fidgeting with his hands and Kim leaning and staring at the ground.

Meanwhile, Law and Home Affairs Minister Shanmugam is confident that security is in place for the Trump-Kim summit.

The two leaders emerged about three hours into their meetings after a working lunch with senior aides.

The historic first meeting between a sitting US president and and North Korea's leader will take place Tuesday at 9 a.m. when Trump and Kin will meet alone with only translators in the room.

Mr Trump also said he "absolutely" would invite Mr Kim to the White House.

Dr Balakrishnan posted a photo on Facebook which showed the two parties celebrating Mr Trump's birthday early with a large cake.

The summit is being held at a hotel on Sentosa, a popular tourist island a few hundred metres off the Singapore mainland and started at 1pm.

It initially was meant to rid the North of its weapons, to forge the "complete denuclearization" of the country.
