Pompeo: Giuliani 'doesn't speak for the administration' on North Korea

I think this is so typical of everything Donald Trump does. It's about the attitude. "It's about willingness to get things done". "I think we're going to get to know a lot of people that our country never got to know", he said. And that's something very important toward the ultimate making of a deal, he said.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said they expect that the Singapore summit will yield nothing more than a vague "end of war declaration" and leave the main issues on defining denuclearisation for further negotiations.

According to a report from the Daily Beast, two of Trump's administration official said that the president is considering inviting the North Korean leader to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla. "I have not seen any secret plan or been told about one", he said. "I tell both the North Koreans and the Americans, we are there to serve tea and coffee". "I did it once before", he said, presumably a reference to a letter that temporarily cancelled the meeting. "It would be wonderful if it were".

Preparations for the summit between Trump and Kim, which is due to be held at a luxury resort on the island of Sentosa, continued this week. National Security Council spokesman Garrett Marquis noted the president met with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton Thursday afternoon "to continue their strategic discussions" ahead of the summit.

Abe has been pressing the U.S.to ensure it protects his country's security concerns such as addressing North Korean short-range missiles capable of hitting Japan, maintaining USA military deployments in the region, and returning Japanese citizens abducted by North Korea.

Trump, once again complained that past presidents failed to deal successfully with the North Korea problem.

"He has indicated to me personally that he's prepared to denuclearize".

Mr Trump called off the summit in May, accusing North Korea of "tremendous anger and open hostility".

The meeting next week in Singapore will be the first of its kind between a leader of North Korea and a sitting president of the United States.

Trump is scheduled to meet with Kim on June 12 in Singapore to discuss nuclear disarmament on the Korean Peninsula.

Mr Giuliani was speaking at an investment conference in Israel when he made the remark. Abe strongly hoped that this historic summit in Singapore will be a resounding success.

He described the talks with Trump as an "in-depth and candid exchange of views", and said he'd been given Trump's assurance that he would raise the plight of the abductees with Kim.
