Singapore hotel offers 250 free Trump-Kim burgers to celebrate summit

12 Juin 2018

USA president Donald Trump has signed three agreements with North Korea leader Kim Jong-un at a summit in Singapore today, but what is in them remains a mystery.

The historic first meeting between a sitting us president and and North Korea's leader will take place Tuesday at 9 a.m. when Trump and Kin will meet alone with only translators in the room.

Before he became president, Donald Trump was better known for his property empire.

The talks - unimaginable just a few months ago - will focus on North Korea's controversial nuclear programme. Singapore's diplomatic relations with North Korea stretch back four decades.

Van Susteren: "Mr. President, nice to see you".

"I believed in North Korea", Rodman said.

Donald Trump says he will have a "terrific relationship" with Kim Jong Un as they appear together for the first time in Singapore.

In response to a question on whether the two leaders will meet again, Trump said: "We'll meet again, we'll meet many times". "So we look nice and handsome and thin?"

Footage shows the camera panning over to Kim, who receives a translation of Trump's comments - and remains completely expressionless.

Some of the dishes on the menu raised eyebrows, even among Koreans.

Trump and Kim may well end up branding tomorrow's summit a success.

The Trump-Kim burger is made with a hope that the summit can be as harmonious as the burger, the hotel's general manager Patrick Garcia Fiat said.

Singapore is a short flight from North Korea for Kim Jong Un, and until recently, North Koreans could travel there visa-free for such luxuries as shopping, and sophisticated medical care.

"I think, far more, and there are things that we negotiated after that document that are also very important", Mr. Trump told Stephanoplous.

Then at the last moment Mr Kim's sister, Kim Yo-jong, pulled a pen from her pocket which she gave to her brother.

Elsewhere scores of people were glued to TV screens at the Seoul railway station, cheering and clapping in response to Trump and Kim's cordial greetings.

While interest in the meeting was understandably high, one man seemed more emotional than most.

The meeting is set to take place Tuesday morning (Monday evening Washington time), when the leaders will talk one-on-one.

The North Korean leader is expected to arrive at Changi on Sunday, a source involved in the planning of the trip told Reuters on Friday. Today is a great day for everybody, Singapore, Tokyo, China, everybody ... it's a great day.

The flamboyant former basketball star added that the Trump White House called to thank him for his unlikely diplomacy.
