Tearful Rodman claims vindication for Kim ties

Trump met Kim on Singapore's Sentosa Island at the Capella hotel, starting with a carefully choreograph and landmark handshake against a backdrop of alternated USA and North Korean flags.

While Kim is staying at the St Regis Hotel that has been converted into a fortress ahead of June 12, Trump is reportedly staying at Shangri-La Hotel.

The two leaders began their historic summit meeting around 8am Singapore time with a series of handshake photo opportunities. The United States and the DPRK commit to hold follow-on negotiations, led by U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, and a relevant high-level DPRK official, at the earliest possible date, to implement the outcomes of the U.S. - DPRK summit.

The agreement doesn't appear to contain any firm promises from Pyongyang to abandon its nuclear weapon program, but rather, opens the door to ongoing discussions. I got so many death threats.
