Trump will address reporters after Tuesday’s meetings. He’s scheduled to speak with the media around 8 p.m. local time before leaving Singapore for the U.S.
The meeting between Trump and Kim is scheduled to take place nearly two weeks after the president met with North Korea’s former military intelligence chief at the White House. Kim Yong Chol was the highest-ranking North Korean official to visit the White House in 18 years.
The president said he hopes Tuesday’s summit will be the start of improved relations between the U.S. and North Korea.
“I think it will be a process,” Trump said June 1. “I never said it will go in one meeting, but the relationships are building, and that’s a big positive.”
