As for where Kim will spend the night, he's opted for the St. Regis Singapore, where it is believed he has checked into the hotel's $11,500-a-night Presidential Suite.

Trump made the unprecedented decision to meet with the leader of the rogue regime, a move all of his predecessors had avoided. NY time - in front of reporters, the president and the North Korean leader secluded themselves on Singapore's Sentosa island for roughly 45 minutes while their entourages waited nearby. The 12-man unit, each dressed in a black suit and blue and white striped tie, was selected for skills including marksmanship and martial arts as well as physical fitness and even their looks, Agence France-Presse reported.

Trump speaks to Kim as the pair prepare to begin their closed-door talks. As Cuomo himself said of Rodman Monday night, "He is our best resource right now for understanding the minds of the two men, especially Kim Jong Un".

"It's wonderful, when I said those things, when I said those damn things, when I went back home I got so many death threats", a tearful Rodman told CNN's Chris Cuomo while wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat.

Goldgeier expressed concern about the plan for Trump and Kim to meet alone, with only interpreters in the room.

The face-to-face meeting was "very, very good", the United States leader said after the talks.

U.S. and North Korean officials are set to meet Monday morning in Singapore to make final preparations for Tuesday's meeting.

At the start of the summit, the two leaders who once threatened each other with nuclear annihilation shook hands on a red carpet in front of the island resort hotel chosen for the meeting. It's "stunning" and "not to be minimized in any way", but it's also important to remember that "Kim Jong Un has given up nothing at this point".

The US President is reportedly spending a bit more time with PM Lee today - two hours of talks and a working lunch together with government officials from respective countries, according to Channel NewsAsia. One dispatch by the Korean Central News Agency said North Korea and the U.S. would exchange "wide-ranging and profound views" on establishing new relations, building a "permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism", achieving denuclearization and "other issues of mutual concern, as required by the changed era".

Trump gives his trademark thumbs up to a grinning Kim.

"The world will see a major change", he continued through a translator. But North Korea kicked out the inspectors after the Bush administration accused it of cheating.

"North Korea has its own royal lineage - the Kim family - and so it is natural that Kim Yo Jong traveled to Singapore separately from her brother", Christopher Green, a North Korea researcher and Sino-NK editor, told NK News on Monday.

Trump predicted earlier Monday that the summit could "work out very nicely" as officials from both countries sought to narrow differences on how to end a nuclear standoff on the Korean peninsula.
