Meet the young Singaporeans building bridges with North Koreans

A woman walks past a cannon barrel stuffed with flowers in a symbolic gesture of peace at Fort Siloso in Singapore, as preparations continue for Tuesday's Trump-Kim summit.

President Donald Trump speaks to reporters on June 9, 2018, during the G7 Summit in La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada.

Hundreds of North Korean security experts have no doubt been up nights wondering how to safeguard Kim Jong Un since Trump shocked the world by accepting the North's invitation to meet.

Trump hopes to persuade Kim to completely abandon the arsenal of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles that the North Koreans have spent more than a generation amassing.

Speaking just before embarking on his marathon journey to Singapore for the pair's historic summit, Trump bristled with confidence as he boasted that contacts between their respective negotiating teams had been positive. "They're really working very well with us".

The White House had said Trump would leave the summit earlier than initially planned and skip the last session on climate change and oceans on Saturday to head to Singapore. "When the government says, there is prosperity in terms of food and rice, we see it ourselves and see that there is a drought and there is no food for us", Kim said. Accompanying him on the trip is Mike Pompeo, the Secretary of State who has already been to North Korea twice this year in trips shrouded in secrecy. "As President Trump said this week, he approaches the summit with confidence". Kim, whose organization helps defectors escape North Korea and China and assists them once they reach South Korea, said that, even now, the situation is much the same; North Koreans know their government is lying.

"As far as the "economic aid" advertised by the U.S.is concerned, the DPRK has never expected it", the article said, using the initials for the North's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Poll numbers that showed most Americans - on both sides of the aisle - approve of his handling of North Korea.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average extended its winning streak Friday, as investors shrugged off trade worries at the start of the G-7 summit between the USA and allies. "And I think we should make that clear". "I think that he's going to surprise on the upside, very much on the upside", Trump said. A Nobel Peace Prize for Trump may also be on the line.

His remark brought ire from many, including MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle, who wondered how his appearance in softcore porn related to hardcore global relationships.

Some analysts suggest that, rather than lead to a US-North Korea confrontation, a failed summit will result in renewed diplomatic efforts by South Korea - and possibly others - to restore stability and maintain North Korean restraint, so as to avoid the prospect of renewed escalation of military conflict. He believes North Korea is unfairly portrayed in the West.

"He could take that nation with those great people and truly make it great", Trump said.
