"I think I'm very well prepared - I don't think I have to prepare very much", Trump said at the White House on Thursday.

Kim Jong Un will reportedly be landing in the Asian nation Sunday and will be staying at the Saint Regis Hotel due to security reasons.

He said the police officers who stopped him at Singapore's Changi Airport searched his bags and questioned him for about two hours before letting him go.

"I'm glad to say that as of now, it's all systems go", he said.

"I congratulate the leaders of other countries for crazily being able to make these trade deals that were so good for their countries and bad for the United States", Trump said.

Rubio, who applauded Trump's now-reversed decision to cancel the summit, said at the time that it was apparent that Kim's goal "was either to gain sanctions relief in exchange for nothing or to collapse global sanctions by making the USA appear to be the unreasonable party".

Asked how he would be able to make such a distinction, he said: "My touch, my feel". "You know, the way they say that you know if you're going to like somebody in the first five seconds, you ever hear that one?" "They are really working very well with us", Trump told reporters at a press conference in Quebec, adding that he was looking forward for the meeting.

"I will be on a mission of peace and will carry in my heart the hearts of millions of people, all over the world".

South Korean President Moon Jae-in, a liberal who has made engaging the North a cornerstone of his political career and who has been the fulcrum on which much of the recent diplomacy has pivoted, shook off a suggestion in May that he receive the credit for reducing tensions with North Korea, saying Trump "can take the Nobel Prize" as long as the Koreas receive peace in return.

Time will tell if Brown's prediction holds true; tipoff of Game 3 is tonight at 6:00 PM PT at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Cleveland is expected to put Rodney Hood back into the rotation despite his postseason 15 percent shooting from downtown.

Trumps remarks came two days after he said he didnt need to do a lot of preparation ahead of the historic summit because the interpersonal relationship between the two leaders would be the more important factor.

South Korean activists hold candles during a rally to support of the USA and North Korea summit on June 9 in Seoul. A planned summit between Trump and Kim will be held in Singapore on June 12.

The summit is set to mark the first meeting between a sitting US President and a North Korean leader and comes after Trump and Kim previously engaged in a war of words over the North Korean nuclear program and each nation's military capabilities. "There's probably an even better chance that it will take a period of time, it'll be a process".

She said she hoped the high-level discussions between Mr Kim and other world leaders will lead to greater engagement and encourage more institutions to form connections with North Koreans.

"So we're going in with a very positive spirit", Trump said, before misidentifying the site of the meeting.

Still, it's a serious contrast to the days previous year when choice insults - Trump's "little rocket man" and Kim's "dotard" - were flying between Washington and Pyongyang during the North's nuclear and missile tests.

Trump's Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said Trump receives daily intelligence briefings on North Korea.

Later, the United States president expanded on this thought.

During a press conference this week, Trump also suggested that he could invite Kim to the US if the June 12 summit goes well.
