This share is as high as at any point since 2005. And, just past year, North Korea was named by the USA government as the culprit behind the massive "WannaCry" ransomeware attack, which infected hundreds of thousands of computers around the globe and severely disrupted the United Kingdom's health care sector.

Trump and Kim are set to meet on Tuesday at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa for talks which could see North Korea dismantle its nuclear arsenal in return for economic help and security guarantees.

Concerns have increased for both Republicans and Democrats on these questions since 2013, Pew reported.

Citing two U.S. officials familiar with the planning, Bloomberg said Trump had been willing to stay longer if negotiations were progressing, but since Kim set definite plans for departure, so did Trump.

South Korean officials are hopeful that the meeting between the US and North Korea will set the stage for an end to the world's last remaining cold war and the division of the Korean peninsula.

While a majority of Americans support sanctions, most also support military intervention to protect allies.

He said his perception of Kim - a "bad guy with nuclear weapons" - had improved considerably following his two meetings with South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the border truce village of Panmunjom. "He's much more interested in the theatrics of public policy, rather than the substance", Resnick said.

The summit is seemingly created to focus on North Korea's nuclear arsenal, though the details surrounding it remain hazy and it's not clear exactly what Trump and Kim will discuss when they initially meet.

The US-North Korean summit will mark the first-ever meeting of sitting leaders of the two countries.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is also in Singapore, said in a tweet that Washington is "committed to the complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula".

Trump advisers cast his actions as a show of strength before the Kim meeting.

In return, Kim, said to be in his mid-thirties, called Trump "mentally deranged" and a "dotard".

He would not say whether that included the possibility of withdrawing USA troops from the Korean Peninsula, but said the context of the discussions was "radically different than ever before".

Exuding confidence, Trump said he has done relatively little formal preparation.

Trump and Kim lookalikes held a summit of their own at a local shopping mall, while one bistro is offering a libation known as the Trump-Kim "Bromance:" Beer, tequila, diet Coke and the Korean distilled rice liquor known as soju.

The two leaders landed in Singapore hours apart on Sunday.

Asked Saturday about his goals, he said: "Well, I think the minimum would be relationship".

"It will certainly be an exciting day and I know that Kim Jong-un will work very hard to do something that has rarely been done before". He told reporters he thinks he will know nearly immediately whether a deal can be made, saying: "I will know, just my touch, my feel".
