Twitter’s emoji for Trump’s North Korea nuclear summit is very weird

Twitter’s emoji for Trump’s North Korea nuclear summit is very weird

The Trump-Kim summit, which will be held at the Capella Hotel on Tuesday morning, will mark the first time a North Korean leader has met with a sitting USA president.

They will meet for a very short time, just the two of them and their translators.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met with U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday in Singapore.

President Trump said during the signing ceremony that they have "developed a special bond".

Kim's first major interaction with the worldwide community also betrayed a sense of awe and wonder as he faced the rapid fire shutters of photographers in the opulence of the Singapore luxury hotel where the meeting took place.

Singapore has been following developments on the Korean peninsula closely for a long time, the Prime Minister told the North Korean leader.

Still, "the friendly greeting suggests that both Kim and Trump want to have a good meeting that sets a positive tone for the hard negotiations to come", said Michael Kovrig, senior adviser for North East Asia with the International Crisis Group.

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

As Trump and Lee sat down for a working lunch at the Istana house, Trump sounded optimistic, telling Lee, "we've got a very interesting meeting in particular tomorrow, and I think things can work out very nicely".

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, meanwhile, said on Monday that preparatory talks had moved "quite rapidly", with the USA prepared to provide North Korea security assurances that are "unique" from what it has previously offered.

Shortly after arriving in Singapore in the afternoon, Mr Kim, who is Chairman of the State Affairs Commission in North Korea, the nation's highest decision-making body, met Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong for the first time.

Trump was presented with a birthday cake by his Singaporean host. Mr. Trump stopped to address waiting cameras, saying "a lot of progress" had been made, and that it was "top of the line, really good". The North Korean approach, he added was: "Let's be friends (ie, change the relationship), and then we will change our behaviour".

Rodman told reporters at Changi Airport that he had travelled to Singapore "to see what's going on" and that he hoped "that things turn out to be well for everyone in the world".

He has also convinced the North Korean people that nuclear weapons are their only savior from an invasion by the U.S. But Kim, who was educated in Switzerland, has also promised to transform North Korea's economy and the lives of its people.
