TRUMP AND KIM ARRIVE IN SINGAPORE FOR HISTORIC SUMMIT

President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un arrived in Singapore Sunday ahead of a highly anticipated summit. Playing host to one of the 21st century’s most highly watched diplomatic meetings comes with a hefty price tag, as Singapore has discovered. The host nation of Tuesday’s US-North Korea summit has shelled out about US$15 million, on the historic event, according to Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. If diplomatic talks between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un fail to produce any kind of agreement on the rogue state’s nuclear weapons program, that could bolster Washington’s appetite for military action, strategists warned as quoted by CNBC.
