As many foreign policy experts, religious leaders, and human rights advocates have pointed out, denuclearizing the Korean peninsula is a critical security goal.

In a Monday afternoon Tweet, Stelter fired a stiff jab in the direction of the Fox News host - arguing that the word "interview" might not describe what is set to air on Tuesday night.

"I believe we're going to have a terrific success or a modified success", Trump said during a press conference last week with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Again accusing the longtime U.S. ally of unfair trade practices, Trump added: "Then Justin acts hurt when called out!"

The two leaders are at the site, with Kim arriving at 8:55 p.m., and Trump showing up five minutes later.

"While a summit between Trump and Kim would be historic, it is unlikely to be decisive".

Fox News Calls Trump a "Dictator" Ahead of North Korea Summit
Huntsman was discussing Donald Trump's arrival and his meeting with the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un scheduled in Singapore. That was, perhaps, until she accidentally called him a dictator. "Anthony, talk to us about this moment", Huntsman said .

Trump, after meeting recently with a North Korean envoy at the White House, said the summit will likely be part of "a process".

Trump spoke only briefly in public on Monday, forecasting a "nice" outcome. Lee has said the summit would cost Singapore about S$20 million ($15 million), more than half of which would go on security.

In the past two months, he has met twice with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and twice with China's leader Xi Jinping.

Experts believe the North is on the brink of being able to target the entire United States mainland with its nuclear-armed missiles, and while there's deep skepticism that Kim will quickly give up those hard-won nukes, there's also some hope that diplomacy can replace the animosity between the USA and the North.

Trump and Kim planned to meet one-on-one for most of an hour- joined only by translators.

Following their meeting, President Trump will hold a media availability with reporters as Kim Jong Un departs back to North Korea.

U.S. and North Korean officials were still meeting on the eve of the summit in an effort to bridge the gap between the two countries on how to substantively achieve North Korean denuclearization.

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

Trump initially touted the potential for a grand bargain with North Korea to rid itself of a nuclear missile program that has advanced rapidly to threaten the United States. Trump has also raised the possibility of further summits and an agreement ending the Korean War by replacing the armistice signed in 1953 with a peace treaty. On a larger level, the astronomical cost of the nuclear weapons program contributes to the massive poverty in North Korea, among the world's poorest countries.

Trump advisers cast his actions as a show of strength before the Kim meeting.
