Trump, Kim Jong-un to open historic summit with one-on-one powwow

SINGAPORE — President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will begin their historic summit with a one-on-one meeting, focusing on their personal rapport as they seek a deal for Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons, an administration official said Monday. The length of the initial private meeting has not been determined, said the official, but the two leaders will likely make that decision depending on how their talk unfolds. A bilateral meeting of the U.S. and North Korean delegations will follow, said the official. In a final round of pre-summit preparation, top negotiators from the two sides met Monday at the Ritz Carlton Hotel.
