The clock is ticking down to the historic summit set to take place between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. With only three days to go, Trump is making it clear that he is there to "achieve a truly wonderful result for North Korea and the World" and will not be jerked around by the stout dictator. He also declared the opportunity could be a change for great peace and prosperity for North Korea that should not be wasted.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">…Create peace and great prosperity for his land. I look forward to meeting him and have a feeling that this one-time opportunity will not be wasted!</p>&mdash; Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) <a href="https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1005554692133249026?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

While the president called the summit a "mission of peace," he also said that the two leaders are in "unknown territory in the truest sense." If Kim can meet and befriend American basketball star Dennis Rodman, then he shouldn't have any trouble becoming friends with the likable and humorous Donald Trump.

The president left the G7 meeting of world leaders in Canada for the summit with North Korea which is to be held at the vacation destination Sentosa Island in Singapore. The island is home to around 20,000 people and has several dozen hotels, many of them luxurious to the extreme with western appeal.

Trump spoke to the media before his departure and said that the North Korean leader had an opportunity to do "something very positive for his people, for himself, his family." Washington is hoping the talks could lead to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. The first year of Trump in office saw some insults exchanged between the two leaders, although they were mostly from Kim who called Trump "mentally deranged" and a "dotard."

Trump replied with a subtle but witty comeback, "Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me "old," when I would NEVER call him "short and fat?" Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!" Since then, the pair of done a political dance that involved Trump calling off the meeting after Kim threatened to do the same, then making amends and reestablishing the summit.
