StarMetro Toronto - - CANADA & WORLD -

U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un con­verged on Sin­ga­pore Sun­day ahead of one of the most un­usual and highly an­tic­i­pated sum­mits in re­cent world his­tory: a Tues­day sit­down meant to set­tle a stand­off over Py­ongyang’s nu­clear ar­se­nal.

Trump de­scended from Air Force One, greet­ing of­fi­cials and declar­ing he felt “very good,” be­fore he was whisked away to his ho­tel.

Hours ear­lier, a jet car­ry­ing Kim landed, and af­ter shak­ing hands with the Sin­ga­pore for­eign min­is­ter, Kim sped through the city’s streets in a limou­sine bound for the lux­u­ri­ous St. Regis Ho­tel. Trump has said he hopes to win a legacy-mak­ing deal with the North to give up their nu­clear weapons.
