Donald Trump has arrived in Singapore only a couple of hours after Kim Jong-Un.

Wearing a red "Make America Great Again" baseball cap, the former NBA Hall-of-Famer said that Tuesday's historic meeting was years in the making. "And today is a great day for everybody, Singapore, China, a great day".

"I don't see the politics of this whole situation".

"Yes, Donald Trump reached out", Rodman said, telling Cuomo he had received a call from a person he described as Mr Trump's secretary.

Just meeting with Trump marks a diplomatic accomplishment for Kim, who has emerged from isolation in recent months and rapidly increased his outreach to other world leaders.

The summit was part of a "changed era", North Korea's state-run KCNA news agency said in its first comments on the event. Have a handshake, have a smile, have a glass of iced tea.

"We may be able to recoup a little bit of that but I think it is a cost that we're willing to pay and it's our contribution to an worldwide endeavour, which is in our profound interests", said Lee during a press conference held at the summit's global Media Centre.

Pompeo on Monday drew a firm line, saying the USA plans to keep sanctions in place until North Korea eliminates its nuclear weapons capability. Since then, he's launched almost 100 missiles and conducted North Korea's most powerful nuclear tests. "If you can do certain things, I would listen, my ears would be open, '" Rodman said. I still kept going back. I was the only one who felt so. Rodman said he had tried to pass on what he heard from Kim to Barack Obama but was "brushed off".

"I gave him something for his birthday ..."

President Trump and the North Korean leader looked relaxed after the working lunch, with the US President showing his armoured limousine, "The Beast", to Kim at the end of their post lunch walk.

He said: "We have had substantive and detailed meetings to date, including this morning with the North Koreans".

Karen Leong, Managing Director of Singapore-headquartered Influence Solutions, said the first 60 seconds showed both leaders seeking to take charge in their encounter.
