WaPo: US determining who will pay for Kim's hotel room

Donald Trump waits on Kim Jong-un letter, talks up possible meeting

The U.S.is considering paying for Kim Jong Un's hotel stay when the U.S. and North Korea meet in Singapore for a denuclearization summit scheduled for June 12, according to a report.

According to the report, North Korean officials indicated Kim's entourage prefers one particular hotel, the Fullerton, an island resort near the coast.

Aside from the online furor over Trump lying to the press, again, some people just couldn't get over the size of the letter from the North Korean envoy. "Maybe, you'll need to see it and maybe fairly soon", said Trump.

Washington has said that North Korea's denuclearisation should be a complete and nearly immediate process, while Pyongyang has appeared to put safeguards for the regime's survival as a pre-condition to a process of gradual dismantling, accompanied by a measured lifting of the sanctions.

While the contents of the letter are unclear, Trump said the letter from Kim was "very interesting" calling it a "very nice letter".

"We'll be meeting on June 12th in Singapore", Trump told reporters on the White House grounds after seeing off Kim Yong-chol, a close aide to the North Korean leader.

With no plans to leave Barcelona any time soon, though, that may well be a question that goes unanswered. Argentina , meanwhile, are in Group D with Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria.

Since then, preparations for the meeting kicked into high gear, with delegations from Washington and Pyongyang holding meetings in the demilitarized zone in North Korea and in NY. It was expected that General Kim Yong-Chol would have dinner with the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo. "But I think you're going to have a very positive result in the end". The president and the North Korean delegates then posed for group photographs.

Meanwhile, Kim's popularity hike was less surprising due to photos and videos that went viral of him and Moon joking, hugging and even holding hands.

However, Trump now appears hopeful that the meeting will be rescheduled, as diplomats continue to prepare for what would be a historic meeting between two leaders who have threatened to destroy each other's country.

While the reporters said yes to the question they also discovered for the umpteenth time how much Trump lies.

And he acknowledges that if diplomacy with North Korea works, then troop levels and similar issues can come up, but only in discussions between the US and South Korea.

"Between now and if we're going to have a summit, they're going to have to make clear what they're willing to do".
