Rodman arrives in Singapore ahead of summit

This probably comes as a shock to none of you, but Fox News' Sean Hannity has scored the big post-North Korea summit interview with President Trump.

Trump landed in Singapore a little after 8:30 p.m. local time for the highly-anticipated meeting with the North Korean leader, which is set to take place on Tuesday.

He said he expected the Trump-Kim summit to "go fairly well" but added, "people should not expect too much for the first time".

Both men had looked serious as they got out of their limousines for the summit at the Capella hotel on Singapore's Sentosa, a resort island with luxury hotels, a casino, manmade beaches and a Universal Studios theme park.

"Just meeting the regime, Kim Jon Un, and the whole marshals and everybody", Rodman continued on why he was invested in North Korea.

"We will all know soon whether or not a real deal, unlike those of the past, can happen!" he wrote.

He is now three grand slam titles short of Roger Federer , the pair having shared the past six slam titles between them. It was clay-court tennis as usual at Roland Garros on Sunday, as the Spaniard won his 11th French Open singles title.

In a separate question, the BBC interviewer noted that Mr Kim is notoriously paranoid about his safety and asked what Singapore had to do to reassure him.

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman - one of the few Westerners to have met the North Korean leader on visits to the capital city of Pyongyang - is in Singapore.

The sudden change in schedule added to a dizzying few days of foreign policy activity for Trump, who shocked US allies over the weekend when he used a meeting of the Group of Seven industrialized economies in Canada to alienate America's closest friends in the West. Lashing out over trade practices, Trump lobbed insults at his G-7 host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

"Trump clearly has the upper hand here because the media in North Korea is so tightly controlled".

That came as Trump threw the Group of Seven's efforts to show a united front into disarray after he became angry with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and said he might double down on import tariffs by hitting the sensitive auto industry. "And that it's Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un makes it feel like we've gone through the looking-glass". After the earlier insults and incitements, there was no way to overstate the stakes - and worldwide hopes for an easing of tensions - involved in putting Trump and Kim in the same room together, joined only by their translators. White House chief of staff John Kelly, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and national security adviser John Bolton sat on Trump's side of the table.

"To all Americans and the rest of the world I'm honored to call President Trump a friend".

He added that Singapore's efforts to host the summit would go down in history if the meeting was successful. That's in part because of South Korea's diplomatic outreach to the North, which was highlighted by two summits this spring between the rivals' leaders.
