Spare a moment, as you anticipate one of the most unusual summits in modern history, to consider North Korea's leader as he left the all-encompassing bubble of his locked-down stronghold of Pyongyang on Sunday and stepped off a jet onto Singapore soil for his planned sit-down with President Donald Trump on Tuesday.
Kim Dae-jung won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2000 for the first-ever inter-Korean summit since the 1950-53 Korean War with Kim Jong Il, the late father of current North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
"Why would Kim. believe any commitments President Trump makes when he arbitrarily tears up an agreement with which the other party is complying?" said Antony Blinken, who was deputy secretary of state under Barack Obama.
President Trump's arrival in Singapore.
Kim will likely spend the remaining days at the hotel focusing on last-minute preparations with his top officials for Tuesday's summit.
It will be the first face-to-face meeting between leaders of the two countries, which have been hostile to each other for more than six decades. I feel that Kim Jong Un wants to do something great for his people, and he has that opportunity.
Trump is scheduled to arrive in Singapore later on Sunday and go directly to his hotel, according to the White House. Trump and Kim Jong-Un have both suggested they could also pursue a peace treaty to officially end the Korean War, which ceased because of an armistice signed in 1953.
Grandmother gets pardon after Kardashian meets Trump
Previously, Kim visited the White House last week for a meeting with 45 about Alice's situation and prison reform in general. Trump commuted Johnson's life sentence on Wednesday , following Kardashian's high-profile campaign.
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 obviously, what has been done before hasn't worked".
But in early 2018, North Korea began attempts to improve relations with South Korea by sending a team and delegates to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.
Not only does the resolution shed light on what takes place within these camps - it demands actions by the North Korean government and offers policy options for the United States and its allies to monitor the regime's actions. He also referred to Kim as "little rocket man".
The President would be wise not to take the North Koreans lightly, even though he is convinced he has superior dealmaking skills well beyond those of his predecessors that will help him size up Kim in an instant.
Raising expectations in advance of the meeting, Trump said the outcome will depend heavily on his own instincts. USA officials said that is not their understanding, and that it's possible the leaders could meet again later on Tuesday.
Well, maybe, if anyone here knew it was happening. "And I think it's going to work out very well".
In a series of Monday tweets from Singapore, Trump defended his position by saying "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal". "People don't know much about him".

"Prime Minister Lee wished Chairman Kim success for the US-DPRK Summit and expressed hope that the US-DPRK meeting will advance the prospects for peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and the larger region", the statement added.
Meanwhile, officials from North Korea and the US met for working-level talks in Singapore at 1000 local time, a diplomatic source familiar with the issue confirmed to NK News on condition of anonymity. But some US officials have questioned whether Trump was doing enough to get up to speed.
The American president traveled to Singapore from Canada and the tensions of the G-7 summit that centered largely on disputes over trade.
Numerous architects of the Sunshine Policy, including Lee, advise the Moon administration and were invited to a dinner on the sidelines of the first summit between Moon and Kim Jong Un in April.
The delegation reportedly includes Shotaro Yachi, the head of the Japanese National Security Council.
Denuclearization is a lengthy process.
