President Trump, Kim Jong-un Arrive in Singapore, Prepare for Summit
History is being made in Singapore Monday with the highly anticipated summit between the U.S. and North Korea.
North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-un and President Trump are both in Singapore preparing for the summit.
The White House has made it clear that their goal is to shut down the Communist nation’s nuclear program.
The meeting will be the first time a U.S. President has come face to face with a North Korean leader.
Upon his arrival, President Trump first met with the Prime Minister of Singapore, who is hosting the summit.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo sat in on the meeting and says they are feeling positive about the summit.
President Trump has his uncertainties about the meeting but believes it could end positively.
“This is a leader who really is an unknown personality. People don’t know much about him. I think that he’s going to surprise on the upside. We’re going in with a very positive attitude, and I think we’re going to come out fine,” said the President.
This is only the fourth time Kim Jong-un has traveled outside of North Korea since becoming its dictator seven years ago.
President Trump had just left Canada after the G7 summit.
President Trump recently imposed new tariffs on steel and aluminum.
Canada announced it would respond to U.S. tariffs with retaliatory measures and plan to move ahead with their on tariffs.
The President announced he would withdraw from a trade agreement with U.S. allies.
