THE United States is preparing for Donald Trump ’s summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong - un with the nuclear threat on the Korean peninsula top of the agenda for high profile talks with Japan.

President Donald Trump told reporters that he doesn’ t think he will “have to prepare very much” for an upcoming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un , stating any possible success will be based on “attitude.”.

As it turned out, Donald Trump hasn't really prepared at all.

"I don't think I have to prepare very much. It's about attitude," he answered the reporter, near the Oval Office.

"It's about willingness to get things done but I think I've been preparing for this summit for a very long time."

So he has been preparing but he also hasn't. He's going with instinct rather than a more conventional approach.

It's all very confusing. But whatever the truth is it's a tad concerning because it might mean that his eagerness could lead to a bad deal.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to visit Kim Jong Un in North Korea, state media says

  Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to visit Kim Jong Un in North Korea, state media says Syrian President Bashar al-Assad will visit Kim Jong Un in North Korea’s capital, the regime’s state media announced Sunday in what would be the first face-to-face meeting between the two dictators.North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency said Assad expressed willingness to visit Pyongyang to meet with Kim on May 30 while receiving the credentials for the North Korean ambassador.

"It's about willingness to get things done, but I think I've been preparing for the summit for a long time, as has the other side". Abe said he wanted to make sure that Trump 's Thursday's "Outnumbered" panel collectively cringed over Rudy Giuliani's comments about North Korean leader Kim Jong Un .

Donald Trump said Thursday that he doesn’ t need to prepare much for his upcoming summit with Kim Jong Un , and it might be trolling. There’s a ton of good evidence that Trump actually is preparing for the summit .

But Mr. Trump has been in the driver's seat all along. In fact, we probably wouldn't be in this position if it wasn't for him or his administration.

After summit, North Korea shows Trump in new light

  After summit, North Korea shows Trump in new light North Koreans are getting a new look at U.S. President Donald Trump after his summit with leader Kim Jong Un and it's a far cry from the "dotard" label their government slapped on him last year. Previously, even on a good day, the best he might get was "Trump." No honorifics. No signs of respect. Now, he's being called "the president of the United States of America." Or "President Donald J. Trump.

WASHINGTON — Heading into his North Korea summit with characteristic bravado, President Donald Trump said Thursday that “attitude” is more important than preparation as he looks to negotiate an accord with Kim Jong Un to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula. Preparing to depart Washington for

It might have just been posturing but he called off the meeting only to call it back on – and that's where we're at right now.

"It's all going along very fine. Hopefully, it continues on this track. If it does, the world will be a very happy place," he said from Washington.

"The sanctions are extraordinarily powerful. We could add a lot more but I've chosen not to do this at this time."

But in his classic passive-aggressive style, MrTrump then said if the meeting goes well, the North Korean dictator could be given the chance to visit the White House.

Again, Mr Trump's critics are screaming as White House visits are only ever given to key allies. But maybe that's what Kim Jong-un will eventually be? Scary thought, isn't it.

Now Kim might be visiting the White House. This is definitely cart before the horse. Back to the summit.

And if the summit does go well, will you be inviting North Korean leader Kim Jong - un to the United States? TRUMP : Well, the answer is yes to the second part I think he would look at it very favorably, so I think that could happen. All I can say is I am totally prepared to walk away. I did it once before.

Trump plays down need for preparation for Kim summit . Later at a White House news conference, the President said he is “totally prepared ” to walk away from the negotiating table, if Kim Jong Un is not ready to deal on the future of North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.

Singapore – a country that's fast become the Switzerland of the east – is in readiness for next week's event.

"Singapore's entire foreign policy since inception as an independent sovereign nation is that it could be friends with everybody," Harry Sa from the Institute of Defence and Strategic Studies said.

The venue itself is very special. The five-star Capella Hotel on the resort island of Sentosa.

There's no confirmation yet on where the two leaders will be sleeping. Word is that Mr Trump likes the look of the Shangri-La, while Kim reportedly has his eye on the Fullerton Hotel where the Presidential suite costs up to $7000 per night.

But, the North Koreans don't have a huge budget with all those economic sanctions so the Americans might have to find a discreet way of paying the bill.

Or Singapore, with all the publicity it'll get, may be inclined to give them a freebie. These are strange times.
