Still, both offered optimistic words before Wednesday's dinner.

Trump told reporters that that's what the two are discussing during their second day of talks. These uncertainties are just the reason why we need to think more seriously about the issue of securing our security self-determination. If the United States fails to come up with a detailed roadmap to eliminate nuclear warheads and substances at the upcoming meeting, the initiative of the complete denuclearization of North Korea can be killed off. Even Trump's director of national intelligence, Dan Coats, said he didn't know.

The North Korean leader said they would "have a very interesting dialogue" and hoped the Hanoi summit delivers "an outcome welcome by everyone". So, the U.S. -North Korea summit in Hanoi will be a watershed that determines the destiny of the Korean peninsula.

"Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime", Trump added.

Back at the Singapore summit, the leaders took a stroll around the Capella Hotel, . but with the summit venue this time, placed right in the middle of the city, . we might not be seeing that walk.

In the wake of an intercontinental ballistic missile test by Pyongyang in November 2017, Trump derided Kim as a "sick puppy", drawing cheers from a crowd of supporters at a campaign-style rally.

Trump took to Twitter to declare that his was superior.

"I'd much rather do it right than do it fast", the president said.

The president's closing news conference was hurriedly moved up, and he departed for Washington more than two hours ahead of schedule.

Real Madrid vs. Barcelona
Lack of cutting edge in front of goal in Barça defeat: "Apart from in the last game, we've scored goals, and scored quite a few". Yet up next for Barca is their second La Liga Clasico of the season as Real Madrid host them on Saturday at the Bernabeu.

Facing mounting pressure at home over investigations into Russian meddling in the election, Trump has sought a big win by trying to persuade North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons in exchange for promises of peace and development, a foreign policy goal that has confounded multiple predecessors.

- And could the meeting yield far more concrete results than the leaders' first summit, a meeting in Singapore less than a year ago? He's negotiating on behalf of his people, a very worthy, very smart negotiator, absolutely. "And I believe it will be something - hard to compete with for other countries".

"We will get it done together!"

"Chairman Kim and I had a great talk about that last night", Mr Trump added.

"It's actually not a bad idea", Trump said, after the prospect was raised by a reporter.

"We're going to have a very busy day tomorrow", a smiling, relaxed-looking Trump, said seated beside Kim at a round dinner table with the other four officials and two interpreters.

The two leaders then retired to begin their negotiations privately but were photographed shortly afterward walking on the Metropole hotel's pool patio, where they were joined by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and North Korean official Kim Yong Chol.

Just a few days earlier, he said Kim had the chance to turn his impoverished state into "a tremendous economic behemoth".

The collapse of the summit leaves Kim in possession of what analysts say could be an arsenal of 20 to 60 nuclear warheads, which, if fitted to its intercontinental ballistic missiles, could threaten the USA mainland. "We have a fantastic chemistry".
