President Trump to meet Kim Jong Un in Singapore: report

President Trump will likely meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore this summer, according to a new report.
Trump drummed up suspense on Wednesday for the first-ever meeting between a sitting American President and a North Korean leader, saying an announcement would be made within three days.
While sources who spoke to CNN said Trump has settled on Singapore, the President publicly acknowledged the plans could fall apart when he said, "Everything can be scuttled. Everything can be scuttled ... You'll be the first to know about it if it fails."

Trump, who previously touted the possibility of meeting in Singapore, ruled out the Korean Demilitarized Zone where Kim met South Korean president Moon Jae-in in late April.
The White House is reportedly moving ahead with its plans for Trump to fly to the island city-state in Southeast Asia after the North Korean dictator agreed to suspend nuclear and missile tests and discuss "denuclearization."
The rogue regime also released three U.S. detainees late Tuesday in an apparent goodwill gesture ahead of the planned talks.
Trump made a point to publicly thank North Korea's leader for the prisoners' release — "I appreciate Kim Jong Un doing this" — and hailed it as a sign of cooling tensions and growing opportunity on the Korean peninsula.
Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim — all Korean-Americans accused of anti-state activities in North Korea — are headed towards the Joint Base Andrews outside Washington, where they will land early Thursday.
