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.

"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.

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.
