Just a few days before tomorrow's scheduled meeting between President Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un, former NY mayor Rudy Giuliani claimed Kim had "begged" for the meeting after Trump called it off a few weeks ago.
It is unclear, however, under what terms North Korea would agree to in an effort to reduce its nuclear arsenal. Kim also released a statement in September that said he will "surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged us dotard with fire". "He's one of the best negotiators of all time and I'm looking forward to him adding to his historic success at the Singapore Summit".
Publicly, so far, Trump has offered Kim no more than economic aid and a guarantee he will not be overthrown by the US. Pyongyang says it hopes for a "new" start with the US.
As it was widely expected, the two leaders will discuss the issue of denuclearization, a concept that is feared to become the main stumbling block on the way to a diplomatic breakthrough.
A US official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Monday's meeting appeared aimed at making 11th-hour progress ahead of the summit since Sung Kim's earlier talks did little to narrow a gap between the two sides on the definition of denuclearization or win agreement on tangible commitments from Pyongyang toward dismantling its nuclear arsenal. "As a Singaporean, I am proud that Singapore can be seen as a neutral party and a hub for the event", she added.
"It's kind of insulting", Trudeau said.
In a statement, Rodman praised Trump. -South Korean military exercises and US comments that the North should follow the "Libya model" of denuclearization by eliminating everything upfront.
Since then, the path to the summit has been rocky, with Mr Trump at one point calling it off completely.
If you're not going to be able to walk away - we didn't walk away from the awful Iran deal that was signed, and if you look at what's happened, since I signed that deal, Iran and in all fairness, I say it with great respect for the people of Iran, but Iran is acting a lot differently. And I think it would be well received.
When asked about eventual normalization of ties, he said: "That is something I would hope to do that when everything is complete".

"He would be there, he would be running his country, his country would be very rich", Trump said in May, noting that Libya "was a much different model" and not applicable in this case.
"I really feel confident.
I don't want to waste his time", Trump said.
President Trump traveled to the summit - which will be the first-ever meeting between a USA president and a North Korean leader - from a G7 meeting in Quebec, Canada. "That's what I do".
But it was only Monday morning in North Korea that the government news agency reported that Kim was in Singapore, had met with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and would meet Trump on Tuesday. "I think that he's going to surprise on the upside, very much on the upside", Trump said.
When Trump and Kim meet at 9 a.m. (0100 GMT) on Tuesday they will be making history as leaders of their two countries have never met previously - or even spoken on the telephone.
Despite the initial high stakes of a meeting meant to rid North Korea of its nuclear weapons, the talks have been portrayed by Trump in recent days more as a get-to-know-each-other meeting. "There's nothing", he said.
A "changed era" had come about, it said.
No one, not even Trump himself, expects this one meeting to produce a comprehensive agreement on denuclearization, but if the two men manage to get to the first historic handshake, it will be a huge achievement for them both personally and a feather in Trump's cap when it comes to his unconventional style of worldwide diplomacy.
