  • Kim Jong-un has removed key members from his administration

Rodman has visited the Hermit Kingdom five times since 2013 and even gave the regime's sports minister a copy of Trump's "The Art of the Deal" as a gift for Kim's birthday in 2017. "Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un are pretty much the same", Rodman said. However, North Korea still operates a small embassy in Singapore.

They are "finalizing preparations and will remain in place until the summit begins", said Sanders.

"I think it's probably going to be a very successful process", he said.

The former New York City mayor told The Wall Street Journal that Trump's cancellation of the meeting, which is now back on for the planned date of June 12, forced the North Korean leader into a favorable position. I don't want to sit there and say, 'I did this, I did that.' That's not my intention.

The off-again-on-again meeting between Trump and Kim was originally announced earlier this spring and more officially put on the schedule last month for June 12 in Singapore. DPRK is short for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the formal name of North Korea.

Much Ado About Martian Organics
Methane is also quickly broken down by ultraviolet radiation, so any of the gas discovered on Mars was probably released recently. We also know that Mars was once warmer and had a denser atmosphere, important requirements for life as we know it.

Trump told reporters at an Oval Office event that plans for what will be the first meeting between a serving US president and a North Korean leader, were "moving along very well".

President Donald Trump's National Security Adviser John Bolton is reportedly being kept out of discussions with North Korea because of his aggressive statements about using military force against the reclusive nation and its nuclear arsenal.

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

It also reported that the White House press corps is said to be operating its own media center for journalists who travel with the president.

In April, South Korean adviser Chung-in Moon was even more specific, saying North Korea might be interested in welcoming a McDonald's if tensions between the US and North Korea ease, according to the Chicago Tribune.
