What are realistic outcomes from the Trump-Kim summit?

The Air China Airbus 330 flight at Changi airport raised speculation that a delegation of North Korean officials joined an advance team headed by Kim's close aide, Kim Chang Son, who was in Singapore to prepare for the talks.

"He could take that nation with those great people and truly make it great, so it's a one-time, it's a one-time shot, and I think it's going to work out very well", Trump said. Unlike traditional summits between heads of state, where most of the work is completed in advance of a photo-op, US officials say the only thing certain ahead of these talks will be their unpredictability.

"We might see a similar scale of security personnel from North Korea and safety protocols as we did in April, but they'll also have help from Singapore like special vehicles and agents", said Cho Seong-ryoul, senior research fellow at the Institute for National Security Strategy.

"I don't want to get too far into the details, but when you think about complete denuclearization, it would certainly be all of their sites, not just those that have been declared", Pompeo said in an interview Friday with YTN, a South Korean TV network.

The North Korean leader's 39-year-old IL62 P-885 appeared over northeast China for a brief time on the flight tracking website, though disappeared from view shortly after entering Chinese airspace.

Agreeing to a troop withdrawal from South Korea would be the worst possible outcome for the summit, said Christopher Hill, a former US ambassador who ran negotiations with North Korea in the George W. Bush administration.

"I think I'll know pretty quickly whether or not, in my opinion, something positive will happen", Trump said. Calling his trip "a mission of peace", the US President framed the meeting as a rare opportunity for Kim and said the US was going in with a positive outlook.

In addition, the two leaders likely will establish some of the essential matters that they want to address under an agreement and a commitment to the negotiating process.

Trump Calls to Readmit Russia to G-7
Going into the summit, Mr Trump was at odds with other leaders on issues such as trade, Iran and climate change. Halting all trade with countries that don't drop tariffs is a "very profitable answer", Trump said.

While Singapore has authoritarian leanings, it is still a thriving bastion of capitalism and wealth, and Kim will be performing his high-stakes diplomatic tight-rope walk in front of 3,000 worldwide journalists, including a huge contingent from the ultra-aggressive South Korean press - sometimes referred to by Pyongyang as "reptile media" - two of whom were arrested by Singapore police investigating a report of trespassing at the residence of the North Korean ambassador. "The people of Canada are wonderful, and it's a great country, and a very lovely country".

"Kim Jong Un might bring good looking female bodyguards to embody a more approachable image", Ahn said. "I think within the first minute, I'll know", Trump said of the scheduled Tuesday meeting in Singapore.

"We are the ones who have been talking about putting it on the table", he said.

For the first time, a sitting U.S. President will meet the North Korean Chairman. President Trump can not fully suspend sanctions on North Korea unless North Korea agrees to key reforms. And by the way, we have worked very well with their people, they have many people now in Shanghai, our people have been - in Singapore - our people have been working very, very well with the representatives of North Korea and I think we're going to come out fine.

"My suspicion remains that he is going to try to get as much sanctions relief as possible without having to give up his weapons", said Sen. "People don't know much about him".

After the real Donald Trump left the G7 summit early on Saturday to make his meeting with the real Kim Jong-un, he sent a series of tweets announcing his excitement.
