they said through kcna, the main anchor woman who comes out for important moments that this is historic foreign tour. announcing the fact that kim jong-un is coming to singapore to talk to the u.s. president ahead of time. they clearly are hoping it can be successful and establish relations with north korea and u.s. a durable peacekeeping mechan m mechanism. we are getting specific detail -- details about what kim jong-un is talking about. there have been a number of people following kim jong-un. you see the lines of people when he came from the airport to the hotel taking photos. some waving at him. a few less following the u.s. president. more following the north korean leader. dave. >> quite an image of the body
guards taking a jog. less than 17 hours from the summit. paula, thank you. after months of negotiations and posturing and preparation, the white house has a day to nail down the president's strategy. what will it be? we hope to find out more in an hour when the white house is set is for a briefing. we have jeremy diamond in singapore. within the next hour, we will hear from the official where we layout where we stand. the president sounds optimistic. what is the deliverable here for the white house, jeremy? >> reporter: that is right. first of all, we can report that secretary of state mike pompeo will be the senior administration official to brief the press corps tomorrow. before he does that, we learnend trump and kim jong-un will meet
one-on-one tomorrow with translators by their sides. first they will shake hands before the cameras and they will go into a room, just the two of them, with translators, and begin to hash out a potential agreement. begin the discussions. president trump says he believes it is within the first minute he will know whether or not kim jong-un is serious. it appears that first minute will be between those two men. not with any other senior u.s. officials around them. the president meeting with the singaporean prime minister. he believes the summit could work out nicely. that comes as a senior u.s. official is working out details with the north korean delegation today in singapore. they were discussing what could potentially be an agreement that the u.s. president and north korean could reach. and secretary of state mike pompeo says those discussions led by the ambassador to the
philippines were substantive and detailed. >> jeremy diamondiamond, we wil to you soon. thank you. we look forward to the statement from me pompeo in the next hour. as president trump tries to make base with-- make peace wit long-time enemy, he is ups allies. the u.s. paying close to the cost of nato. the president refusing to sign the g7 communique or statement. once he heard justin trudeau say canada plans to retaliate against mr. trump's steel tariffs. >> i have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing, but something we absolutely will do. canadians are polite and reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around. >> president trump calling trudeau's comments dishonest and
weak. and listen to the president's top advisers piling on. >> he really stabbed us in the back. he really did a great disservice to the whole g7. >> there's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bat faith diplomacy with president trump. >> a special place in hell for the prime minister of canada. let's go live to berlin and bring in correspondent atika shubert. atika, what is the response to all of this? >> reporter: deeply disappointed. not surprised, dave. considering it is not just trade, but climate change and whatever the international agreement is with the closest allies, donald trump is intent on removing himself from it or breaking it. he is not just singling out canada for criticism on twitter. he is attacking germany out of europe.
singling out the fact they only pay 1% of the gdp on nato defense. that is an old complaint of his. why is he singling out canada and germany in particular? what we know from prime minister trudeau's comments that there was a concern he was making donald trump look weak. if germany's case, it is this. the main photo across the front pages. we have a close up of the photo. chancellor angela merkel looking stern over donald trump. that may be a reason why president trump has been attacking germany on twitter. he doesn't want to be put in this position as he goes into talks with kim jong-un. >> the body language of that photo is astounding. you wonder why he would sit there and have the elevated
reverse power complex there. atika shubert live for us this morning. thank you. >> it is interesting, dave. how you read that photo depends on what you think of donald trump. his supporters say look at him. he is standing defiant against the rest of the world. lectured by the status quo. others are saying it looks like president trump is isolated and alone. >> what do you make of this? it depends. >> true. that photo will be in newspapers around the world. the president is renewing attacks on trade spending and for countries not paying their fair share. saying the u.s. payshe entire cost of nato and adding that they pay onl a fraction of the cost and laugh and also he singled out germany for paying 1% of gdp and we pay 4% of a larger gdp.
sheer wh here is what you need to know. nato is asking members to spend 2% of their gdp on defense. there's no penalty if they don't. it is a guideline. the u.s. doesn't pay the entire cost. out of 28, the u.s. pays 4% of the gdp. the u.s. is the giant in the room. $686 billion on defense. that is double all other nato countries combined. largest economy in the world with the largest military spending. germany spent 1.2% of gdp on defense. members that fall below 2% are ramping up spending. eu and canada on track to meet that by 2024 because of the c cajoling of the president.
>> what brought him back to this? >> it is him on the newspaper and maybe he is tying trade and defense and the u.s. hal authority. >> merkel did put that photo out first. perhaps that was a shot. president trump refusing to retreat from his call to readmit russia into the g7. he is doubling down. >> it would be an asset to have russia back in. i think it would be good for the world. i think it would be good for the united states. of the countries of the current g7. i think the g8 would be better with russia back in. we are looking for peace in the world. not looking to play games. >> is russia looking for peace? russia was killcked out four yes ago for annexing crimea.
let's bring in correspondent matthew chance. >> reporter: donald trump is in a g1 on this issue. everyone else in the g7 is against it seems bringing russia back into the group of industrial ee eed nations. the downing of the civilian airliner and backing of bashar al assad and the chemical weapons attack on a former spy and his daughter. when you look at rewarding russia, there is no support in that alliance. in terms of the russians, they responded with skepticism. they said we don't care about
the g8. we focus on other formats. there is an awareness in russia and awareness that donald trump cannot always deliver on the things he promises. he promised to make it better and it has gotten worse. >> astounding. matthew chance live. thank you. 13 minutes past the hour on historic monday. a pizza delivery man is saved from deportation after arrested dropping off food to the new york army base. why he gets to stay in the united states with his daughters and wife. that's next.
but we won't get there without you. visit alz.org to join the fight. 4:17 eastern time. a federal judge blocked the deportation of the undocumented new york city pizza delivery man. he was turned over to immigration officials this month delivering pizza to an army base in brooklyn. more from polo sandoval.
>> reporter: dave and christine, pablo villavicencio, the 35-year-old pizza delivery man is in custody. he went to a brooklyn area army base to make a delivery because he had no department of defense identification, he was subjected to a background check to gain access to the base. the system showed an active warrant. i.c.e. was called and villavicencio was detained and nearly deported when his lawyers filed an emergency stay. we are told by his family that villavicencio had actually filed for a green card in february and was currently waiting to hear a response from the government when he was detained. the legal team for the gentleman says he does not have a criminal record and in 2010 voluntarily deportation order did not come as a result of any law enforcement encounter. it was an administrative process
playing out in court. according to the legal team, this was not the first time he had made a delivery at that base. we will find out in a month what the judge decides. dave and christine. >> thank you, polo. white house staffers have been taping pieces of paper back togethersident trump rips them up to comply with the presidential records act. the papers are letters that are required by law to be preserved and sent to the national archives. an analyst terminated after 30 years of service, said he never seen anything like it in previous administrations. i have a letter from chuck schumer. he ripped paper in tiny pieces. >> the president has a pattern of deleting or ripping up papers. the white house has systems in place to preserve all tweets.

with a north korean leader. president trump digging in his heels in trade after the rocky weekend with the g7. why he is isolated himself from the allies and global reaction. welcome back to k""early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm dave briggs. we are live in moscow and berlin with the reaction to the president's movt the g7. we start in singapore where they are putting on the final preparations for the summit. president trump is getting ready to do something no u.s. president has done. meet face-to-face with the leader of north korea. it is late afternoon in singapore and has been a busy day. president trump met with the singaporean prime minister and officials for aorking lunch. the president joined by top aides and members of the cabinet. including secretary of state mike pompeo and chief of staff john kelly and national security adviser john bolton. >> president trump is insisting this is a one-time shot for kim
jong-un to achieve peace and prosperity for his people. >> i think within the first minute i'll know. >> how? >> my touch. my feel. that's what i do. i think i'll know pretty quickly whether or not in my opinion something positive will happen. >> north korean state media reporting kim is open to discussing denuclearization and durable peacekeeping on the korean peninsula. i'm sure we have to define that. every party probably has a different idea of durable peacekeeping. for the latest let's go live to cnn's paula hancocks in singapore. durable peacekeeping is in the eye of the beholder, i assume. >> reporter: absolutely, christine. we hear from the north koreans they will talk about denuclearization and peacekeeping. we know the north koreans want a
peace treaty on the korean peninsula. we also have been seeing this flurry of diplomatic activity. the ambassador kim meeting with his north korean counterparts. meeting at the demilitarized zone for the last couple weeks. they met here to try to hammer out final details and agengenead substance of the talks. you know the u.s. president has seen the singaporean prime minister. he sounded positive when he was talking to prime minister. saying i think things could work out nicely. secretary of state mike pompeo saying the president is very well prepared. these are really the last flurries of activity we are seeing ahead of the meeting. we see a few media scrums here. everybody camped outside the hotel with the north korean delegation and following them as they go to meet with the u.s. delegation. we have not seen anything of kim jong-un today. the north korean leader.
we have been hearing from state-run media they have announced publicly this is happening. they announced it to their people. showing that they do believe it could go well. it is quite unusual to announce this thing ahead of time. the famous anchor woman coming forward and talking about it and it being a historic tour. back to you. >> the president of the united states on air force one on sunday. the leader of north korea on a borrowed plane fro china. really fascinating dynamic. thank you for that. talk to you soon. after months of preparations, we are getting our final glimpse of what is ahead for this meeting. we will hear from secretary of state mike pompeo in just less than an hour's time. there are pictures of the president in singapore. as what to expect at 9:00 eastern time, let's check in with jeremy diamond in
singapore. jeremy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dave. secretary of state mike pompeo is expected to answer questions at 5:00. very, very shortly. of course, there are a number of issues that remain to be resolved and key questions reporters will be asking. first among them is how much have u.s. and north korean officials bridged the gap on the understanding of denuclearization of north korea means. we know officials were meeting today to try to iron out details of the potential agreement. we heard at this point that president trump and kim jong-un will be meeting one-on-one for their first meeting that kicks off this summit which is tomorrow. of course in our time in singapore. that could leave a lot of u.s. officials with questions and some worries. we know president trump has been eager to be free whiling in discussions with kim jong-un. he wanted flexibility. he suggested he will go in and
go off his gut. his instincts. clearly there will not been any u.s. officials in that room to steer him. >> the president's touch and feel. a lot on the line. jeremy, thank you. it is a fascinating juxtaposition. the president trying to make peace with a long-time enemy. at the same time, chaos simultaneously driving a wedge with america's longest and closest allies. the president attacked members of the g7 on twitter over massive surpluses. the president refusing to sign the g7 communique once he heard prime minister justin trudeau say this. >> i have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing. it is something we absolutely will do because canadians, we're
polite and reasonable, but we will not be pushed around. >> talking about canada retall yating. -- retaliating. president trump calling those comments weak. listen to the president's top advisers reacting. >> he really stabbed us in the back. he really actually -- you know what? he did a great disserviceo the whole g7. >> there's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engaging in bad faith diplomacy with president donald trump. >> let's go live to berlin and bring in correspondent atika shubert. atika, that is not typical diplomacy talk we are hearing here. this is america's closest allies and friends. what is the reaction there in europe? >> reporter: well, i think it is pretty clear here people are not surprised anymore at these
statements from president trump. they are disappointed nonetheless. this is what chancellor merkel said in the interview that it was sobering. europe has to take its future in its own hands. she would like a good relationship with the u.s., she can't count on a good relationship with president trump. why he is singling out canada? we heard the comments earlier from administration officials. why germany? that may be because of this pho photo. you have seen it. it is on the cover of most newspapers. the headline "europe will not be intimidated." it shows merkel leaning over and seemingly giving what looks like a luecture to president trump. it doesn't make donald trump look very good. that may be why he is lashing out over germany and germany only pays 1% of gdp and nato defense. that is an old complaint of
president trump's. it dismantled the relationship with the u.s. and closest allies. >> so interesting to renew that complaint about nato as he is about to be on the world stage with north korea. at te atika, thank you. and the president won't a -- went on a tweet storm. protecting the same countries that rip us off on trade. they pay a fraction of the cost and laugh. he singled out germany forslowl pay 4% of a larger gdp. it is asking members to spend 2% of the gdp. there is no mpenalty. the u.s. doesn't pay the entire
cost, but it pays more. out of 28 nations, four actually spend 2%. the u.s. is the biggest economy an powerful economy with the biggest military and biggest military spending in theworld. the u.s. spent $686 billion last year. more than double all the other nato countries combined. germany spent 1.2% last year. members fall below 2%. they have been spending more. ramping up spending really amid the criticism from the white house. the eu and canada are on track to meet the target by 2024. there are those who follow this and say the u.s. pays the most and has a bigger voice at the table. >> that's why. >> there have been elements in europe which have been not wanting to spend more militarily. last century was horrible with spending from europe. nato is the blunt for the west against russia. that is why it is an important
key. >> good segue. president trump pre-furefusing s call to admit russia back in the g7. he is doubling down. >> i think it is an asset to have russia back in. it would be good for the world. it would be good for russia. it would be good for the united states. it would be good for all of the countries of the g7. i think it would be a positive thing. we are looking peace in the world. >> russia was kicked out of the g8 a year ago for annexing crimea. let's good live to moscow and bring in matthew chance. what is the reaction there, matthew, on the fascinating statement from president trump. >> reporter: it is fascinating and stunning. the reaction has been perhaps not surprisingly skeptical from
the russians. first of all when they heard it they focus on other formats. president trump on the state visit to china says he prefers the chinese led group of countries he was currently taking part in the summit. he says was essentially more important than the g7. i think what is behind that is a high degree of skepticism. first of all, there is anyone else in the g7 that would tolerate the readmittance of russia. there has been no progress made on annexation of crimea or the downing of the civilian airline err or backing of bashar al assd in syria. so skepticism or any willingness on the part of the others to bring russia back in. skepcism in general that president trump can deliver on the promises he makes rding
russia. he promised to makes relations better. the russians are looking at this situation for a long time. they want to draw a wedge with the united states and europe. it seems president trump is doing that work for them. >> you wonder what did russia do to get back in his good graces? we would like to hear the president speak to . matthew chance live in moscow. thank you. politico reporting that president trump is shredding documents that are supposed to be kept under the confidential records act. one has the painstaking process of putting them back together. next. from the very beginning ...

they need to tape them back together to comply with the presidential records act. the papers include letters and official documents required by law to be preserved and sent to the national archives. a former analyst terminated after 30 years of service said he never seen anything like it in previous administrations. i had a letter from chuck schumer and he tore it up. >> donald trump's penchant for deleting tweets and reposting them is raising questions about compliance with the law. the white house has systems in place to preserve all tweets. the pentagon identified the u.s. service member killed on friday in somolia. 26-year-old alexander conrad died of injuries. four other soldiers wounded when the team came under attack by
