Trump blasts 'haters & losers' in typo-filled tweet from Singapore

Trump blasts 'haters & losers' in typo-filled tweet from Singapore

Trump and the North Korean leader are both in Singapore for Tuesday's meeting, the first-ever between United States and North Korean leaders.

At best, we can hope for a joint statement signed by Trump and Kim that spells out in general terms what both men are hoping to accomplish and how they intend to accomplish it, along with perhaps a grand gesture, like a promise to open a USA embassy-or a McDonald's-in Pyongyang.

Trump and Kim - both intent on making history - greeted each other early in the day with extended hands in front of a row of United States and North Korean flags, a previously unthinkable sight that reflects a new chapter in the two countries' acrimonious relationship. North Korea was sharply concerned about security leading up to the summit. China, South Korea, and Russian Federation have all tried to influence the strong-headed leaders before they sit down together for the first time.

"Meetings between staffs and representatives are going well and quickly....but in the end, that doesn't matter".

Joint armed forces of from the Chinese police and the People's Liberation Army have enforced tight security in the border area of Dandong in northeastern China's Liaoning province, that lies across from North Pyongan province, the source told RFA's Korean Service.

North and South Korea remain technically at war after the 1950-53 conflict ended in an armistice that Seoul's then leader refused to sign and divided the peninsula along the Demilitarised Zone. Trump has openly floated the possibility of striking a peace deal formally ending the Korean War 65 years after an armistice ceased military hostilities.

Trump and Kim are staying in separate hotels less that a kilometre apart in the famous Orchard Road area of Singapore, dotted with high-rise luxury apartment blocks, offices and glittering shopping malls.

Kim was cheered by onlookers who caught sight of the dictator, who until earlier this spring was not believed to have ever left North Korea as supreme leader.

The day began with Trump patting Kim on the back and placing his hand on the North Korean's shoulder as they walked into their first meeting.

South Korea estimates the North has 50 kilogrammes of plutonium, reportedly enough for around 10 bombs, and a "considerable" ability to produce uranium weapons. "If they don't denuclearise, that will not be acceptable".

A formal end to the Korean war may also be discussed. But Trump has notably avoided calling out authoritarian leaders on human rights when he wants closer ties with them, whether it's adversaries like China and Russian Federation or allies like Saudi Arabia and the Philippines.

A sit-down with the USA president is something North Korea has long pushed for.

During this warming of relations between the two Koreas, March saw Mr Trump stun the world by accepting an invitation to meet Mr Kim.

Close US ally Japan has urged Trump to bring up the decades-old issue of its citizens abducted in 1970s and 1980s to train Pyongyang's spies in Japanese language and customs. Meanwhile, Mr Kim has called Mr Trump "mentally deranged" and a "dotard". It's aimed at settling a standoff over Pyongyang's nuclear arsenal.

Still, the road to the Singapore talks has been far from smooth. "If Trump gets something about this, it will boost his agenda".

So the summit was almost derailed by talk from Trump's hawkish National Security Advisor John Bolton of a "Libya model" of disarmament. It was a striking about-face from less than a year ago, when Trump was threatening "fire and fury" against Kim, who in turn scorned the American president as a "mentally deranged US dotard".
