Putin praises 'brave' Trump over planned meeting with North Korea's Kim

"We said we're not going to have a summit under those circumstances".

Darren Prince - Rodman's representative - would not confirm the trip to the Post. He said the plans were "moving along very nicely", according to BBC. "Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un are pretty much the same".

Giuliani, the president's lawyer, said Trump pulled the plug on the meeting with Kim on May 24 because top North Korean officials insulted top administration officials.

A week after Kim Kardashian visited the White House to discuss reform of the criminal justice system with President Donald Trump, The New York Post reports sources saying Rodman could play a role in negotiations on the Singapore resort island of Sentosa on Tuesday.

Sentosa is home to palm-fringed beaches, tourist sites and some of the best golf courses in Asia and Universal Studios Singapore.

Sanders told reporters on Monday in Washington that the summit would start on the morning of June 12.

Donald Trump says he can pardon himself. Can he?
Trump's team argues that the president can't be forced to answer questions or be charged with obstruction of justice. Attorney Preet Bharara also told State of the Union it would be "outrageous" for Trump to pardon himself.

Most notably, the South Korean government paid US$2.6 million for the North Korean delegation's transportation, meals, and hotel bills at the Pyeongchang Olympics earlier this year.

The Washington Post speculated last week that - in an effort to avoid insulting Kim by offering to pay directly - the United States government was trying to find a "discreet way" to pay for the North Koreans' share of the summit.

Sentosa, meaning "peace and tranquility" in Malay, is Singapore's fourth largest island connected to the mainland via a 700-meter bridge.

Kim Chang Son, director of North Korea's state affairs commission secretariat, and Joe Hagin, a deputy White House chief of staff, met at the hotel in late May to work out security and logistics measures.

"I don't want to take all the credit".

They could be gearing up for the possibility of the North-U.S. summit leading to trilateral talks involving South Korea, but the Blue House has been hesitant in confirming the goal of their visit.
