'Totally Prepared to Walk Away' From June 12 Summit

That's not my intention, ' Rodman said, adding that his intention was to go to the North and be an ambassador.

Trump added that he hoped some day USA relations with Kim's secretive Pyongyang government could be normalised.

"I think it's a process", he said.

Despite his repeated criticism of Obama for failing to stop North Korea's nuclear development, Trump took Obama's advice and employed it in his strategy.

Trump said that this is something that should have been handled many years ago by other presidents.

"Well, Kim Jong Un got back on his hands and knees and begged for it, which is exactly the position you want to put him in", he added.

He appeared at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics alongside a Donald Trump lookalike, and the duo are set to take part in an alternative summit ahead of Tuesday's meeting between the U.S. president and Kim. Still, Trump tried to tamp down expectations.

President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe met on Thursday ahead of the summit with North Korea.

The goal of Trump's "maximum pressure campaign" is to press North Korea to return to dialogue and produce desirable outcomes from talks. Leading the American efforts in negotiating with the North Koreans, he said the U.S. is making progress, inch by inch. "But I know many of you are going and I look forward to seeing you there".

Trump's meeting with Abe comes ahead of what promises to be a tense Group of Seven summit in Canada, clouded by the U.S. leader's aggressive trade policies.

"I wish to directly face North Korea and talk with them so that the abduction problem can be resolved quickly", Abe said. "If they don't denuclearize, that will not be acceptable", he told reporters shortly after Abe arrived at theWhite House.

On the other hand, Trump said he might extend an invitation to Kim to Washington.

Pompeo plans to stay in the region following the summit to meet with officials from Japan and South Korea and to travel to China, an important North Korean ally, to discuss the next steps involving Pyongyang.

Trump has lately been playing down expectations for the summit by no longer talking about an immediate agreement to eradicate North Korea's nuclear arsenal.

Trump has made clear he prefers a bilateral deal to reduce the US trade deficit with Japan, while Abe's government says multilateral agreements would be best. And I think it would be well-received.

If Singapore's reputation for tight security was one reason the real Kim Jong Un agreed to hold his summit with Donald Trump in the city-state, the fake Kim Jong Un now knows why.

"They have to de-nuke", Trump said. The president has been receiving a daily briefing by his team of national security experts, including new Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

"I don't think I have to prepare very much", Trump said to reporters after a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. "It's about attitude. It's about willingness to get things done", he said.

In case you thought Trump was preparing for his summit with Kim Jong Un - you know, learning about the subject and walking through the likely North Korean ploys and weak points - he's doing nothing much at all.
