The White House has yet to release the document's text. "We just need the doors to be opened so we can start fresh", he said, telling Cuomo, "it's a great day" and exclaiming: "I'm so happy!"

"For me, as an analyst, it's that all we will have to rely on is the word of Trump and/or Kim", Killough said.

US President Donald Trump plans to depart early from his unprecedented summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, the White House said yesterday, declaring that nuclear talks with the North have moved "more quickly than expected".

The two clasped hands for a long while Tuesday as they posed for photos in front of a row of USA and North Korean flags.

But they were soon smiling and holding each other by the arm, before Trump guided Kim to the library where they held a meeting with only their interpreters.

In a letter on Monday, Senate Democrats outlined how they believe Trump should handle negotiations with Pyongyang, saying any deal should require that North Korea give up its nuclear and ballistic weapons programs.

The two will huddle alone for roughly 45 minutes before being joined by aides for a larger meeting and working lunch.

"I think things could work out very nicely", Trump said in a Tuesday meeting with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. "It was not easy to get here", he said through his translator.

North Korea, however, has shown little appetite for surrendering nuclear weapons it considers vital to the survival of Kim's dynastic rule.

Mr Trump said he felt "really great" about the meeting. "The President has also expressed his openness to expanding access to foreign investment and other economic opportunities for North Korea if they take the right steps".

"We are hopeful this summit will have set the conditions for future successful talks", Pompeo said yesterday evening.

It's so far unclear whether the USA and North Korea will release some kind of joint statement or agreement following the sit-down.

Here's a look back at some of the many comments Trump has shared on Twitter about the North Korean leader.

He added there was no mention of verifiable or irreversible denuclearization in the Singapore summit agreement.

The U.S. President, who is more than twice Kim's age, then appeared to lead the way to the library where they held a one-on-one meeting, placing his hand on the North Korean leader's counterpart's back.

Pompeo on Monday drew a firm line, saying the US plans to keep sanctions in place until North Korea eliminates its nuclear weapons capability.

Yet the top USA diplomat added Trump is ready to offer "unique" guarantees to ease the regime's concerns about giving up a nuclear arsenal that provides a deterrent against foreign adversaries while also serving as a key point of national pride.
