>> that is unbelievable. ed henry, thank you. >> stunning. >> thanks for joining us tonight. we'll be back tomorrow. >> 9:00 p.m. in our nation's capital. 9:00 p.m. in new york city and 9:00 a.m. here in singapore where we are live and only as you can see on the screen moments away from president trump's historic one-on-one summit with the north korean dictator kim jong un. north korean dictator at the summit site here in singapore. this is an important moment in the united states. now after the summit by the way we will tell you all about the president's historic meeting. we will play you the full interview. we will be interviewing president trump on this program tomorrow night. we have our opening monologue in just a few minutes. from singapore telling us what to expect from this meeting. we have fox news chief white house correspondent our friend john roberts what's
going on there? >> sean, good to see you, and good morning to you. your live position. a little bit of breaking news. the president tweeting while he was waiting there for kim jong un to so the president could get into the cappello resort there. larry kudlow his chief economic advisor has suffered heart attack and taken to walter reed national military medical center. we have no word on what the condition of larry kudlow is. but he is obviously in good hands. walter reed national medical center one of the premier medical institutions in this we will stay abreast of that and bring youopments on that part as things unfold. now to the immediate matter on hand here at singapore and this summit. if you look at where we are now, compared to where we were just a few months ago, it is remarkable progress. these are leaders who not only had a sense of animosity towards each other because of their various country's positions but also were hurling personal
insults at each other. president trump calling kim jong un little rocket man in the speech that he made to the united nations general assembly. kim jong un saying, rather unkind thingsbout president trump. yet, here they are in the same building at the same time. what remains to be seen though is just how serious kim jong un is about the process of denuclearization. mike pompeo the secretary of state has told us on a couple of occasions now said he was told in person by kim jong un because he has met him twice in person this will be the third time that kim jong un wants to denuclearize. that he has a personal commitment from kim that, yes, he wants to go ahead and do it. but it would seem to cut against the grain last two or three decades u entered into negotiations. maybe rolling back nuclear program. the north koreans have done one thing on one hand and then they have done something quite different on
the other u remember, they said they were going to get rid of plutonium production system and then they merely swapped that out for enriched uranium which is what led to nuclear bombs that they had been test you had. the president going into this with a great degree of skepticism that north korea really means what it is saying but the president insisting only thing that he will stand for is complete irreversible and verifiable denuclearization of the korean peninsula. we know to some degree what kim jong un is looking for. is he looking for econo guarantees u is he looking for security guarantees. he would like to see an end to the korean war and isolation of the united states. unless is he prepared to give it all up. in a way that can be verified, sean, is he not going to get much from this president. >> i don't think there is any doubt about it. john roberts checking back in with you throughout the hour tonight in singapore. here in washington we have
counsel to the president. kellyanne conway is with us. kellyanne, i think john roberts summed it up right. the complete, verifiable irreversible denuclearization of the korean peninsula on top of what has already happened which we can officially say is historic. that is by the way we are watching kim jong un and the president, let's watch this. as they meet shaking hands. history in the making. >> sean: that was the photo op. we are expecting in about -- let's listen in.
[inaudible] >> what do you hope to accomplish, sir? >> sean: the media is now shouting questions what would you like to accomplish, first? it's scheduled to be a 45-minute meeting. many expect it might go on longer. many talks have gone on throughout the day yesterday and throughout the night tonight. and leading into this morning. 9:00 a.m. here in singapore. we do expect in about 15 minutes from right now that the president and kim jong un or at least the president will be making a statement. when that happens. we will bring it to you
live. but let me go back to kellyanne conway, counselor to the president. complete verifiable irreversible denuclearization of the korean peninsula. we already have a lot that's happened here. we dismantled one nuclear test site. at least kim jong un has. we have three american hostages have been released. missiles sto being fired back in december over japan, the saber rattling has stopped. they are actually talking about denuclearization. and some hardliners have been, well, let's say expunged or removed from power. so, a lot has happened leading up to this that really paved the way for this, kellyanne. >> that's right, sean. and peace and progress have already won. the steps is that have been made truly are historic. everybody watching is witnessing history. congratulations to you for securing the first post summit interview with president trump. and i know that he will tell you what he thought of today. but remember what he has said already.
which is that this president knows that sometimes negotiations like this take 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or more meetings. you can't change 70 years of war and a country that has isolated its sufficiently from most of the rest of the world as it becomes nuclear capable. and you can't expect that to turn around in a day or meeting. let's remember what's changed from past president attempts. leadership of president trump. it's his ability to reframe the way we look at relations around the globe. and i will tell you, this is not an american issue. denuclearization of the korean peninsula is everybody's business. this benefits the world. that's also why preside trump has brought on board the south korean president, mr. abe from japan. he keeps including folks from the region in the conversation. he has been preparing for this for quite a while insofar as he has been conferring with and receiving briefings from folks though ho are versed in the region.
here you are you are right. way ahead of the game. something about president trump accepts the invitation from north korea to at least sit down and start to talks. are people this weekend who are saying they hope the summit fails. they hope the economy tanks. folks, don't bet against peace and progress for the world. get on. >> sean: kellyanne, if i can interrupt you. hang on one second. we're going to listen in on kim jong un and the president now apparently taking questions. >> i feel really great. we're going to have a great discussion and tremendous success tremendously successful. it's my honor. we have a terrific relationship. i have no doubt.
>> all right. guys, let's go. >> sean: all right. as you can see. let's keep listening in. the president will have a terrific relationship. a little hard to hear the interpreter here. we will be putting up on the kyrons at the bottom. basically what you have a bunch of niceties. photo opportunity. this is an historic event. the last time we saw something probably as big as this, thiss back to reagan and gorbachev and, remember, i it did not work out as some people thought. it prey greed over time. the wall came down. we l. they be talking about denuclearization human rights. will he they be talking about possible reunification of north and south korea somewhere down the line? all of those issues, i'm sure, will be discussed at some point. as the president was very clear when he left washington, he was saying this is a process. there will be nothing signed here, he said. he said this might take two,
three, four, five meetings or maybe even more. but it certainly is worth it. if we can make the world a safer place. but, again, the core argume and mandate of the united states and this is very clear. it is complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization of the korean peninsula. all right. joining us now, we have dr. sebastian gorka, sara carter and you see this pool behind us daniel hoffman was swimming in it doing laps. i was up with you. that's how i know. good to see you. the goal is noble. we have so much that has happened leading up to this. which should give the world hone. there is no guarantees here at all. but the fact that north korea took all of those stepping, hostages released. missiles stopped being fired. they are willing to talk about denuclearization. all of that and then knock down one of their nuclear test sites. that's a pretty big concession just to get here.
>> there is a lot of stepping already been taken already. long-term is whether he wants to cash in capability for food and cash. and incident grating his economy into the region and the world. those questions remain to be answered. what we know today is that the president is taking the presource core step which is to establish the relationship with kim jong un on which everything depends. >> sean: there was one political point, dr. gorka, making before this. you know, it's interesting. every economic measure and 500 plus days. fairly remarkable. compared to 8 years of obama. everybody who said donald trump couldn't win the primary. couldn't win a general election. that thought trump's economy would tank. and that this day would never occur because he called little rocket man and talked about fire and fury. if they had any intellectual honesty, democrats and the media would be eating crow.
many politically sadly don't want this them to be successful because that hurts them in november. >> bill maher wants the american economy to tank. >> sean: he said so, recession u. >> einstein made out speed of light famous with his equation. i think now we are going to have to talk about the speed of trump. think about what has happened in just 500 plus 10 days. it is truly remarkable from the crushing of the isis caliphate. 75% decrease in legal immigration. think about what's happened in a matter of a few weeks a couple of months ago we were talking about potential fire and fury on the korean peninsula. today on the anniversary of reagan's brandenburg gate speech where he sedentary down this wall. i doth my cap to choose june 12th a big day. we may be moving from fire and fury to potential peace and prosperity. >> sean: similarities are
remarkable. i know there is a whole generation weren't watching when reagan met gorbachev and reagan walked away from racovic. mr. gorbachev tear down this wall. >> tree tried to remove it six times. >> had to manually write it in there as he was riding to the event. the swamp is an old phenomena. been around for a long time. >> feels like the swamp because it's more humid here in singapore than any place i have been in a long time. similarities are remarkable. but it wasn't just tear down this wall. it was the evil empire. sounds a lot like fire and fury and sounds a lot like little rocket man. >> it was the iron curtain and reagan doctrine. this didn't just happen overnight. just like north korea right now. it doesn't happen overnight. months of preparation in november kim jong un launched the icbm.
icbm over 2700 miles into space. think about that, sean, the space station is 250 miles up. this was a really direct thread. it was a real warning. and that's why the fire and fury statement came up. here we have these two men really challenging one mother. something more important that's happening here. this is theinning of something very important, and isolated nation like have you described so much, samuel in all of your work. coming outefro. and. reaching out to you. do you want to take this opportunity go back to november fire and fury? >> daniel, you have been really remarkable from the get-go. you have been warning people especially the white house. don't manage expectations here and i think very early on the president rightly, look, kim jong un is
unpredictable. nobody expected him to cross the dmz newt arms of the south korean president. but it happened. and the president walls very don' anythin signed, 12, 3, 4, 5 visits. maybe invite them. maybe i won't. i will size him um in main. like he probably did all of his business life. said i prepared my whole life for this. >> i think the president followed a really smart path. we st secretary pomp to pyongyang to two visitso size up kim jong un. and seat extent to which he was serious about conducting negotiations. i think forefront of kim jong un's cals ist his nuclear deterrent is important for his regime security. he saw what that meanto fellow a ought accurate. >> on their definitely looking for. what assurances do we have that if they need the economic assistance article
that the delegates of kim jong un $35 buffet breakfast which is the monthly salary of the average person. people are starving in north korea. at some point that becomes existential threat to the are regime. too. assurance of the united states and china be enough to make give it up -- yeah. >> that's why it was genius i'm going to find outs who did it whoever had the plan yesterday who take kim resort we there were before. 57 stories. unbelievable building. autopsy pew lens what can you do in singapore in a matter of a few years. and showed this to kim. can you imagine what he is thinking right now? wow. this is the west. this is free markets. this is democracy. they planted a seed in his mind that okay, perhaps we could have this on the korean peninsula. it's genius.
it's utter, utter genius. >> sean: one of the other things this is party of the lead up to this. very interesting. the president, that is his sort of power posed if you look -- if you noticed with inister trudeau, all of a sudden he was sitting back and saw president trump leaning forward like this and he went into the president smiling. he are both smiling. these are the niceties, planned in advance. orchestrated in advance. one interesting point, there is a differing policies as it relates to foreign policy. there is a philosophy of reagan. peace through strength. trust but verify. the berlin wall came down. then there is the philosophy of bill clinton he tried to bribe kim jong il with $3 billion in energy subsidies and told the american people this is a good deal are to the american people. it wasn't. he got nuclear weapons u like there is no cargo planes being sent here of cash and other currencies like obama sent to the mull also a in iran a very big
philosophical divide about how to approach these people. >> absolutely and failed sanctions. you know, talk, talk, talk. what we see is continually proliferate nuclear capabilities. we saw that in syria. when north korea was actually assisting syrian regime u. and we see that consistentl consistently. leadership, by president trump. reagan was very good at this. what effects them. it's what takes them. and had you mentioned what is it going to take for kim jong un to move into this century to give his people what they need and economically i think right now seeing he has had that for some time went to switzerland in school in switzerland u this wasn't somebody isolated from the rest of the world. he just wanted the rest of the world's respect. it's going to be difficult. human rights abuses in north korea are staggering. there is a lot.
>> sean: gulags there. >> that's right. >> sean: one step at a time. i believe the nukes needs to be pawrst the conversation. if you denuclearization of the korean peninsula occurs. we have safer world. to what extent daniel huffman did the president's sanctions and the president strike brigades off the korean coast do you think have an influence on kim jong un? >> think very serious and significant impact. two pronged offensive. the contrast couldn't be greater. we are sitting in the middle of one of the most economically vibrant regions on the planet. north korea shut outlier. singapore is the prototype. not just kim jong un is taking it all. in everyone who is traveling with him. kim jong un has to balance the fact that his economy i in free fall. that threatens his regime greatly.
he has to think about that coupled with the united states' determination to mount this deterrent that we have made very clear to him that we will be responding very seriously in the events of any military activity from north korea. >> sean: one other thing and i want you to add to that dr. gorka if you can. i also think one unbeknownst little factor here if did you go back to when the president was meeting with the chinese president. very -- actually fascinating and interesting. because meetings that were supposed to be 15, 20 minutes, went on five hours. there is a story that the president tells that when he was at dinner with the chinese president, that was the night of the first syrian strike. >> right. >> president assad had used these weapons against his own people. in the middle of dessert as the president tells the story. he leaned over and told the chinese president well, they are hurting children innocent people just so you know somebody else told him that relationship seems to
have solidified greatly and is very under reported. how big a factor is it? the biggest factor these talks today of a player who is not in that room right now is china. and the fact that china after that dessert and the chocolate cake and the 59 criewstles missiles. >> sean: you heard the story, too. >> indeed. there was some kind of gelling at mar-a-lago. afterwards they didn't produce what the president expected. when the president got even more serious. when he sent those tweets about beijing did not step up to the plate what happened? beijing stopped buying north korean coal. one of the few things they had. >> sean: that was huge. american. in our banking sector sanctions north korea. somebody told you a year ago china is going to help them
north korea financial sector. they would have september tout funny farm. it happened. this is the trump effect and also i have to say here it's mike pompeo. what mike pompeo has done is absolutely incredible. truly incredible. >> mike pompeo is a rock star. he came in first in his class at west point? >> at west point. >> sean: we are a little jealous a little bit too much resume building here. continue with our panel. as we just saw moments ago, a photo opportunity. the president kim jong un they are now meeting, what is scheduled to be only a 49 minute meeting. we will be watching the time and see what happens. it is understood that the president -- they might be both going home after this all happens for the very latest we have right here with us in singapore fox news chief national correspondent our friend ed henry is with us. ed, what's going on? interesting you mentioned the timing. commentary on other channels maybe because this schedule is getting compress you had that the deal was following
through. the president trying to extinguish any talk along those lines with some tweets right before these talks started haters and others trying to calm this down. white house telling me they basically planned for the possibility of the president staying a second day for these talks to continue but also knew thatt might only be one day. kim jong un basically indicating he wants to go home just a few hours after these talks end. nowhe president planning to do the same. but, again, u.s. officials are cautioning that could change based on what's happening right now, happening before our eyes behind closed doors. if they are making progress and need more time, they very well both leaders could extend their time here in singapore. on the other hand, u.s. officials saying that in the pregame talks, they feel like they made so much progress in terms of denuclearization, and getting there on a reasonable timetable that
perhaps and under a compressed schedule they could get some kind of a peace deal or framework for peace deal regardless of how long they stay here. very bottom line as you were talking about mike pompeo a moment ago the secretary of state, a little scoop i heard was about a week, a week and a half ago, the president went with his family to camp david. mike pompeo was supposed to go there and brief him during some of his down time to prepare him for this summit. but, i'm told that pompeo told his aides he didn't really need to brief the president anymore. he was very confident a week or so ago that the president was already very up to speed on all key issues. have you had democrats like chuck schumer say this was seat of the diplomacy. they don't know what's going to happen on the ground in singapore. the president's team is very confident that a he is prepared and b they are closing in on some kind of a deal. we're waiting and watching very closely. at the top of the how about, mike pompeo, john bolton and chief of staff john kelly will join this meeting between the president and
chairman kim and expanded bilateral meeting as they call it just over a half hour from now to try and figure out exactly what kind of a deal they can hammer out, sean. >> sean: great perspective, ed henry thank you for being with us. we stay in singapore. our own john roberts is standing by. we are watching history in the making. john in. i would love to be a fly in that room. >> wouldn't that be an ing p be. here had you two leaders really throwing rocks at each other, now shaking hands and being very cordle with each other. president saying they are going to have a great relationship. n sing the have me a lot of very big obstacles in order to get together in that room. again, the big question, because we haven't been exactly to this point. many times in the past because there has never been leader t leader talks. and certainly never been the president of the united states and the leader of
north korea in the same room together just them and their translators. bueen through a lot of negotiations with north korea and they have never really panned out. you had that agreement back in the early 1990s that seemed to go some distance tobing north korea's nuclear program. with the one hand they were getting rid of petaluma prograplutoniumprogram and enrit program. there is so much to talkabou he. the president had said on many occasions that they can't get it all done in one meeting. what hopes to do is start a process. if you look at languages wage that m pompeo, the secretary of state used yesterday, he said the ultimate goal is the complete irreversible and verifiable denuclearization of the koreans peninsula. the ultimate goal. what's the interim goal. the president said when he told me which he threw a picture at him like to do that it all at once. that's not realistic.
can't just box newcomerstown larr program. put it on thrans port plane and take tote united states in kind of the same way that they did with the libya program in 2003. it's much m massive. also includes big ballistic missile program. that's going to have to be taken apart. then there is this idea, too sean of verification. north korea has always played hide andak with its nuclear program. even when expect inspectors were allowed into country. stressed it again yesterday v for verifiable is a big, big, big issue here. until you get a program in place and get cooperation from the north koreans that they are going to be very transparent, absolutely transparent and let you know everything you are doing, you are never really going to know what north korea is up to. when you look at the history of this nation. they have always said one thing and done another. so if the president president can get same track
everybody knows what's going on and north korea does want to denuclearize that's going to leave an open question. "the washington post" had update on larry kudlow u according to jude kudlow his wife she told "the washington post" and the white house is working oan statement right now that larry kudlow is fine, quote fine and that the docrs at the walter reed national military medical center are terrific and they are taking good care of him. trying to get independent verification of that, sean. haven't been able to at this point. they are working on beard dogging this as well. the word is that larrykudlow is. sean? >> all right. john, by good news, great news. i'm freafnsd larceny, thank you for that report. we will get back to john and ed henry. what we are witnessing here really history in the making. what is perhaps the most consequential weak by the way in recent memory when you think about this. president met personally when the particular
territory. now meeting one-on-one. discussion expected to last 45 minutes is going to be followed by a joint meeting and a working lunch with advisors from both sides. now, the result matta goal in these talks is the complete and verifiable and by the way irreversible denuclearization of north koa. so we're going to show you why president trump has already garnered more diplomatic success right here in this region than any other administration in modern history. there is reason. it didn't happen by accident. we will discuss how the president's policies now force kim jong un tout negotiating table in the first place. the perspective and understanding, we have got to learn these lessons how there are democrats some in the media don't want to admit they are wrong. don't want to admit that the nuclear war we are predicting didn't happen and peace may happen in its place. by the way we do have to announce the president will be sitting down with us right here in singapore for a one-on-one interview. that's all happening. you will hear directly from him what went on behind the
scenes what's actually happening right at this hour. we have so much to cover and we are going to get into it in tonight's breaking news singapore opening monologue. ♪ >> sean: all right, as we speak, the president is conducting a series of meetings with the north korean dictator kim jong un. they just met, they shook hands, they had a photo op. and tomorrow the president will join us right here on this program for an important one-on-one and he will bring inside that room. how did we get here? detail the president's goals how political opponents of the president are purposefully trying to create artificial unrealistic expectations so this is a failure when we have groton so much out of this already before it even started. no one predicted that these talks would immediately result in the complete and total denuclearization of north this is going to be a process as the secretary of state mike pompeo said hard work actually begins after the summit.
and it's very important to remember what president trump. what he just said he told under the circumstances it's a process it's a long process and here is what he said. >> our people very been in singapore. our people have been working really well. beare going in with a positive attitude and come out i think fine. i have said it many times. who knows? who knows? may not work out. good chance it will not work out. probably even better chance that it will take a period of time. it will be a process. >> so this is going to be an ongoing process. president saying can he go at his own pace he can go faster and he can go slower. cannot forget the untrustworthy nature of kim jong un and his predecessors we have learned from history. mostly cloudy won't agree to our terms. the president stated many times he will walk away. that will be the right thing
to do. he already cancelled this. this president is not going to be duped into sending cargo planes full of cash yolike bill clinton promised they will never get nuclear weapons. knee know abject failure. kissing the rings of despouts doesn't work. trying to bribe them doesn't work. frankly a form of insanity. in order to award mistakes and clinton's blunder. hold out president and it seems to. following predecessor ronald reagan and just like donald trump, reagan applied trust but verify very oppressive. just like trum some of you may not remember. this worth learning the f history ord to repeat the failures.
take a listen. >> they preach the supremacy of the state. declare its omnipotence over individual man predict eventual documentation of all peoples on the earth. they are the focus of evil in the modern world. so in your discussions of the nuclear freeze proposals, i urge you to be aware of the temptation of pride and labeling your sides big es. ignore the facts of history and aggressive forces of evil empire. to call the arms race a giant presidents understanding and remove yourself between right and wrong, good and evil, it's important to remember president reagan was not afraid to walk away from the negotiating table thuvment is very key before effectively i understanding the cold war. ronald reagan in 1986 one-on-one talks with mikhail gorbachev walked
away in iceland. and of course tonight we have many reasons. hopeful. previous administration u kim jong un he dismantled one of his nuclear. intercontinental ballistic missiles firing them over japan and guam threatening the entire region. at least temporarily. bask in december. he ended all nuclear tests. arrested three american hostages. he walked across the dmz and had friendly talks with the south korean president. president moon. and now for the first time in history the sitting down right there as we speak and without hesitation, without any concessions from the united states, this is a point the media hasn't made. none, zero, he has given nothing. and we have groton concessions that nobody predicted. and the president is demanding complete, verifiable irreversible
denuclearization. this is obviously a worthy goal. you care about your kids. your grand kids. you want a safer world. this is a good day for you. at least we have hope. primarily achieved. how did we get here main strategic regions. peace through trent. it box every time i. he sent carriers to the describing to the region. tightened up screws on sanctions program have crip tell north korea's horrible economy. make no mistake in north korea today their dire kim jong un's kingdom deals with hunger and poverty that is a threat to his power. by the way on a scale we are not seeing anywhere else in the world. as kim jong un comes here, they can take a look at just how beautiful south singapore is and say maybe we can do this in my country. because north korean economy is so distressed, even kim jong un, report reportedly
needed financial assistance. i will let him stay with me if he wants. i will let him sleep on the couch u primary way, this is an important lesson. trump forced kumaritashvili with improved relationship with the chinese president. china is north korea's biggest trading partsner. many believe it holds it appreciate on kim jong un and his ar regime. the world is watching. we are watching here in singapore. you still have people on the left predictably, i have said many times that if the president actually gave a million dollars or more to every american citizen. you would have people on the left say isn't it 2 million? there are people that president trump's success is a failure for them. in other words, they want these talks to go nowhere. do you think the democrats want the president to do well here? there are people who have been wrong about donald trump, our president. every single step of the
way. pundits, so-called journalists, fake news, they claim oh, trump is leading to us a nuclear holocaust because of his huff words and actions against north korea. the same people, let me see they predicted and laughed at the idea that trump could win the republican primary. they laughed at the idea he could beat hillary clinton. the same people didn't believe that the trump's economic agenda would be successful in 500 days. same people predict you had president trump would everybody been impeached. we have the lowest unemployment rate in half a century. we have more jobs than people to fill them unemployment ryan lines. lowest unemployment record for african-american americans. women in the workplace. more jobs available people on unemployment. pretty amazing for 500 days. g.d.p. growth it's at faster pace than at any time during out 8 years of obama u oh, yeah, and president trump is
still in office, no legitimate threat of impeachment. not a shred of evidence about trump, russia collusion. constantly wrong on out fox news media. overpaid lazy so-called journalists, really? it makes t look back when out president is successful and it helps the country and our world. for democrats they want to get back in power, i get it to be successful that doesn't help them. once again, this has been on a grand scale. people have under estimated donald trump again and again. even sadly some want him to be failing so they can be proven right. and many are incapable of ever reporting objectively on this president. my some are saying trump wasn't prepared for the summit. they will never win, watch this. >> yes, preparing for this all along in his imagination. there is a difference between studying up for it.
this is not a dog that likes to learn new tricks. he relies on the same statement over and over again. would he have told you president will depend on instinct feel and touch. >> what i'm worried about with president trump is this whole tng i'm god's gift. i will go n a moment and i will know within 30 seconds whether there will be a deal or not or whether i know the history of north korea doesn't matter it doesn't matter. >> he says i have been preparing all my life when was that, when you appear new playboy soft come poe or bothered slapped. when you were leaking information, disguising yourself as your own pr guide talking in the tabloids what a great lover you were. >> now so obvious and transparent from everybody she said not something you
ever gp. they got their position. we understand. by the if the president succeeds. think about this. is this good for the world or not good for the world. good for kids and grand kids or not good for kids and grand kids u bad news for them. that's sad. we think that kim jong un and the president might be coming out for another photo opportunity. if that happens, we will bring it to you live. we bring back danielle hoffman, sara carter and dr. gorka. i think for me having watched reagan and watched and watching history unfold. reagan was tough on gorbachev and the soviet union. reagan took a tough stabbed. so many similarities and some of the same people that were wrong about reagan are wrong about here. >> right. president reagan's on
intelligence to make good. one the first steps he made behind the tweens is to bring back clan destin service officers native korean speaker with extraordinary expertise in the region. and andrew kim who accompanied mike pompeo on that easter weekend trip to pyongyang and he has played a really critical behind the scenes role. i do know him. >> sean: everybody here we have all been meeting and talking with each other. everybody here can verify. this he scares the living daylights out of you. daniel offman and i mean n complementary way. every is, of course, being recorded. when you take a thampsz the chinese and russians. you have been tell me since you got here. i'm sure it's true. not the shower part. i'm hoping it's a slight level of discretion here.
>> i'm thought so sure how interesting the shower part would be. >> sean: thanks a lot, daniel, the level of interest is so high in this summit. tracking us, the russians and chinese in particular. >> sean: you say highest level. you were very clear.you were tes that they -- that electronic communications are being horn tored everywhere here. no getting away from it. >> my estimation that the chinese and the russians in particular have mounted a full-court press in order to determine -- in order to collect as much intelligence as they can. they are pretty wide in scope when they do that they know this is an extraordinarily important meeting. one of the things that the president has done to his credit is that he has kind of shut out russia and china two party of the six party talk who are not holding our interest at part. by doing that and trying to leverage our bilateral engagement with north korea. i have think he has had much more success. they are trying to influence
out russians and chinese behind the scenes and collect information as well. >> sean: you and gorka, you are almost -- the thing is you went 35 years. you lived in russia you, what, five years. >> >> >> sean: three decades. you understand this game more than anybody. >> in a lot of ways this is a what we are dealing with. >> that's right. even back at home when we are talking about fisa and carter page and all the issues surrounding mueller. i want to goc to what daniel was saying. the chinese saying so much at steak here. they have a light at stake with north korea. it's very important for them to understand what's going on. they don't want to seale the christ of north korea. they wanter is noble or take effect ingeght being. neuritis interest just like the united states has our
own national security interest to really understand what's going on here. same with the russians. this is what trump is so fantastic at. he is able to reach out. he says, okay, i'm going to decide right now. reaching out with north korea. i'm dealing with kim jong un. i understand your concerns as well. but i'm negotiating with you. despite what the say sayers say because we know he has been actually prepping for this for months. he has been prepping for this ever since november of last your. when they lifted off their icbms. >> sean: very hard to hear. and great observation. very hard to hear, dr. for can a when they were there for the photo op. they answered a couple questions. we expect them t come out in a moment. overcombings everything. was here i thieve it will be very successful. without a doubt. tungt path and practices blinded our ears blinded our
eyes and ears. it sounds like i keep going back tout fact that kim mace all these concessions. one little news item that pandemic don't pay attention to three hardliners i don't know if we'll use the word purge, he is spunged. removed. >> need to spend more time with their children what you hear from the media if they get fired i need to spend more time. that couple lynn being fired. >> goes back to key element of your monologue, sean. why was reagan disefl and why is trump seemingly so successful? you can't win unless you believe in your team. and it's a very simple formula. if you start your presidency with a global apology tour, you are not going to negotiate your way out of
the paper bag. you are going to give in to the mullahs in reign. you are going to allow out chinese to rise. you are going to respond to russian invasion of the ukraine rolling over and playing dead. reallynstill faith in america. when you believe in your fight. you can win negotiations. when you are going there thinking hey we are the wad guys you will get steam roller evidence. >> think with obama's e. junt went on apology tour. >> lou are you going to -- >> sean: i didn't see it at the airport when i arrived. >> how are did you going to uponly change the world if you think your country is the problem. that's what president obama want. you are the problem. you will get played by everybody. and trump did never be played. >> look. not even knows the outcome, one thing for certain, this is his industry nut making.
leading up to. this kim jong un had a kelly line about this as he waste not osi for him to get here. >> on a chinese plane. >> apparently didn't h money for hotel room. i offered him -- no, i'm getting. i tried that joke. first we have more information from our own john roberts here in singapore but did not go to dinner with us last night bull who you? >> well, i'm available tonight, sean. yes, sean, i can hear you. that oprah is still open open. room together for little more than half an hour now. very earliest stages of forming a relationship and will give us the very earliest indications of how this could go going forward. the president's with him
here in singapore know that the outcome of this one-to-one is the most important thing that is going to happen today and is probably the most important thing that has happened with the u.s.-north korea relation want to even call a relationship, in decades. the president wants to sit down with kim. he wants to take a measure of him. he wants to gauge whether or not is he serious about denuclearization. he wants kim to be able to see that president trump is sincere about offering them economic incentives. security incentives and potential end for the north korean watch include normal trade relations it could be a huge boon to north korea. the president said yesterday that he hopes the two of them will like each other so that they can move forward. i don't think can you overstate the fact that everything that will happen from here on in is really penned on the relationship that the two of them can
develop with each other in this one-on-one. if they gotten size u remember a cousin pell weeks ago the vice chairman you have imlak came to the white house he was basically to walk in the southport co-through the reception room oval to the oval office. hand the president the letter from kim jong un and then walk down the sidewalk to the south lawn driveway and thrive off. he tunged out being being there an hour and 15 minutes longer the signs are the better. you were colony here. they are now out of that meeting. again, sean, to be fly on the wall would be specifically. we should also tell you. >> sean: john? >> go ahead. >> sean: john, if can i interrupts you, the president kim jong un came out together. they were now waving to the waving media that is there. seems friendly. the president saying high
now it looks like they are going back into another room room or another conference. talks with afternoons is scheduled to be lunch. 9:50 a.m. singapore time. 9:50 p.m. d.c. in new york. it looks like kim jong un, did he just put his arm around donald trump. if my video is right there. and i couldn't see totally. but, now i assume they have got another meeting. they have a working lunch and both sides, both tells will be there. john, that's the plan? >> yeah. they are going to go into what's called the expanded bi lat. mike pompeo, jaffe expwron kelley. u.s. commander on the u.s. side. kim will bring in advisors and i believe kim jong un will be among item fcialght from there they will go to a lunch where the american delegates and north korean delegates will expand even
further. it will also include on the american side the u.s. ambassador to the philippines who really is oint person here in dealing with the north korean delegates about the finer points of diplomacy here and what they can and cannot get done as well, sarah huckabee sanders will be joining and matt pot jerry who ipottenger. is he an interesting fellow. journalist, "wall street journal," stationed in beijing. he speaks mandarin. he clearly know as lot about this region. and matt, for the most part, has been in out white house over at the executive office buildingorking on this. nonstop literally 24 hours a day, seven days a week. is he finally going to have a commands to meet kim jong un. which may be in the leads for those of you have following though. but for those who follow out white house every day. amazing opportunity for
somebody who has been doing incredible work on trying to bring theology two sides together u now, as for the departure, the president has initially scheduled to stay here through wednesday morning just in case there were -- there was reason for more meetings. 10:00 in the morning here on tuesday. so the president was going to stay through until about noon tomorrow just in cases there was a reason for there to be more meetings on wednesday morni the north korean delegates said well kim jong un is going to be leaving between 2:00 and 4:00 on tuesday. the president decided he was going to leave as well. is he scheduled to depart around 7:00 this evening. we are told that the detar temperature time is style fluid there is the potential here and i don't know how great it is. if the two leaders are getting along. with the delegates are totally engaging in spirit and dialogue. maybe we will see departures delayed a little bit. i would pause it to you that the long e. this goes' today
the better it is. likely relationships are developing and making progress. you saw the relationship there between kim jong un and president trump. it seemed very cordial and seemed friendly. looked much warmer than that. >> sean: they are actually -- >> elbow a number of times. >> sean: john, if i may. the president now -- they are actually sitting at a table. what was the planned delegates working meeting before they have what is an 11:30 lunch that would be an hour and a half from right now. let's listen. in. >> problem big glim until >> working together, we will get it taken care of.
after they had met privately. etty much on time. about a 45 minute meeting. this is expected to go on until 11:30 a.m. singapore time. media expectations were way out of whack despite everything the president said. no, we are not going to sign anything. this is a "get to know you" basically. we're going to meet maybe two, three, four times. mike pompeo sitting to the left of the president. interpreter to the right of the president. chief of staff john kelly. he said the hard work will begin after all this. a lot of meetings between both sides of been going onehind the scenes. our own ed henry, fox news chief national white house correspondent, is with us. very hard from our position to hear a lot about was said there. except "i look forward to working with you." that i did pick up from the president. >> that's right. just the fact that there were
warm words being expressed. the fact that they are sitting down. the president of the united states and chairman kim at a table a few feet apart after multiple handshakes and walks. the 45 minute meeting. all of the punditry in the run-up to this, suggesting it's falling apart, that the time and shrunk. it's unlikely there's going to be a deal. think about, week after week leading up to the summit how many times we have heard this helmet is not going to happen. the president had set expectations too high. here we are, the first ever meeting between the u.s. president, democrat or republican, and a leader from north korea. last august, guam was on a high state of alert because north korea was threatening to send either medium or long-range missiles to attack guam with u.s. military personnel and their family and others better. the talk of potential nuclear conflict. critics saying the president's rhetoric about fire and fury was
spinning us into a nuclear war. the bottom line is, less than a year later, the president quite literally is at the peace table, sean. >> sean: great points. one of our points of even making here, daniel hoffman, sara carter and's -- sebastian gork. trunk leather will be a good relationship. i will forward to working with you. i believe it will be successful. by all indications of everything we discussed the lead up to this day. >> they broke the ice. here we go. now we have negotiations. it's a great first step. >> we saw with mike pompeo statement earlier that he said he sees things moving in the right direction. he was very positive. i think were going to see a lot of developments after this meeting. >> this wasn't just like any other bilateral. the man looked like it but lecture number one thing. this the first time since 1933.
history was made right now. >> sean: i want to thank you all. will be back here tomorrow. we'll have an interview with the president. right here tomorrow night, 9:00 a.m. singapore time from a 9:00 eastern. let not you heart be troubled. laura ingraham is next. >> laura: good evening. i'm laura ingraham and this is a very special edition of "the ingraham angle." where witnessing history in the making tonight as president trump and kim jong un just wrapped up their one-on-one meeting and are now holding an expanded bilateral meeting, as you saw that, top advisors. it's the first time a u.s. president and north korean leader have met face-to-face, and the stakes cannot be higher with president trump seeking to denuclearize the korean peninsula and solve a u.s. foreign policy riddle that has stumped policymakers for decades. here's what they had to say as he summits. >> we are going to have a great discussion and i think
