A Fox News anchor apologised after accidentally calling Trump a 'dictator'

Trump's Diplomacy

Trump on Monday forecast a "nice" outcome, while Kim spent the day out of view. After the meetings, the two teams and other senior officials met for a working lunch, where beef short ribs, sweet and sour pork and "Daegu Jormin", or Korean braised cod, were served for the main course, according to the menu.

The first episode of this close encounter with Kim had the whole world binge-watching, from the first handshake to the dictator's tour of the presidential limousine, known as "The Beast", courtesy of Trump.

Commenting on the upcoming summit, she said: "This is history, regardless of what happens in that meeting between the two dictators, what we are seeing right now, this is history". North Korean and USA journalists argued and elbowed one another for almost 20 minutes jostling for position to capture the moment when Trump and Kim entered the room.

In a September 2017 speech in front of the United Nations, President Trump referred to Kim as "Rocket Man" and threatened to "totally destroy North Korea", which earned a rare rebuke directly from Kim describing the president as a "frightened dog" and "mentally deranged USA dotard".

By the early evening, the country's tightly-controlled media had completely ignored the meeting, at which Kim made a vague pledge of denuclearization and Trump suggested he would end "provocative" joint military exercises with South Korea.

In the hours before the summit began Trump expressed optimistism about prospects for the first-ever meeting of sitting U.S. and North Korean leaders, while U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo injected a note of caution whether Kim would prove to be honest about his willingness to denuclearise.

With destiny calling, Trump was the first to arrive at the colonial-era Capella Hotel on Sentosa, a resort island off Singapore's port with luxury hotels, a Universal Studios theme park and man-made beaches.

Hamilton's fifth place, combined with Vettel's win, means the Ferrari driver now holds a one-point lead in the standings. It was Ferrari's first win in Canada since 2004 and came from their first pole there in 17 years.

One Twitter user wrote: 'This Singapore Summit between Trump and Kim needs a name.

Tuesday's meeting is the first ever between a sitting U.S. president and North Korean leader.

Trump and Kim both spoke to reporters gathered in the room.

The two then sat down with their broader national security delegations for a second meeting.

"Anthony, talk to us about this moment", she added, turning to Scaramucci.

Trump's tweets have been shown to regularly closely follow discussions on Fox & Friends, Fox News' morning magazine show. The president said that his newly formed relationship with the dictator is markedly different from the lesser relationships his predecessors had with Kim's relatives, saying "they've never gone this far, you know, they've never been at a level like this, and his father never dealt with a president".

It wasn't immediately clear what specific progress, if any, had been made in preliminary discussions between US and North Korean officials in the run-up to the Tuesday summit.
