Donald Trump on Thursday said he’s not sweating the upcoming summit in Singapore with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, telling reporters the meeting is “about attitude” and not, presumably, a well-informed strategy.

Bloomberg's Jennifer Jacobs reports Trump has, in fact, spent roughly ten hours per week with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo learning Kim Jong-un's family history.

Trump also commented on reports Dennis Rodman will also be in Singapore before the summit, insisting Rodman “was not invited” by the president.

Trump and Kim Jong-un are set to meet on June 12 at the Capella hotel on Sensota Island.

 

Trump promised reported the summit is "more than a photo-op," and suggested it could last more than just one day. 

 

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he “will meet President Trump to coordinate in order to advance progress on the nuclear issue, missiles and, most importantly, the abductees issue.”
