good morning good morning. i'm diane macedo. >> i'm kendis gibson. here are some of the top headlines we're following on "world news now." president trump expressing thanks to the prime minister of singapore for hosting the historic summit with north korea. the president will meet kim jong un for the first time months after trading insults and threats. we'll have a live report from the region. speaking of insults and threats, the tension between the u.s. and canada is heating up. he said we can't let our friends or enemies take advantage of us. neighbors near cleveland reported smelling gas before an explosion destroying this house. the explosion and flying debris caused damage to nearby homes as well.
and the band's visit swept last night's tony awards top prizes, and in the most emotional moment of the night, students from parkland, florida sang an anthem of survival from "rent." those are some of our top stories on this monday, june 11. from abc news, this is "world news now." what a moment there at the tonys. the audience was just jaw-dropped. and afterwards, huge standing ovation. >> if you were watching at home, you got chills just listening to them. great to see them on that stage after all they've been through. but we're going to start this half hour with history unfolding. some 10,000 miles from most u.s. cities. president trump and kim jong un are preparing to sit down in singapore at the negotiating table for the first time. the white house has confirmed their first meeting will be just
one on one. >> the summit officially gets under way tonight 9:00 p.m. eastern time. karen travers is live in singapore. give us an idea of what this summit will actually look like. >> reporter: good morning, diane and kendis. for now, all we know about this summit is that president trump and kim jong un will be meeting one on one to start that meeting. as you say, it will take place 9:00 eastern time on monday night. after that, they'll let in their expanded staff for what would be their second meeting, a more, full meeting a larger conversation. but for now, the white house is not indicating if there will be anything else added. but there's certainly the possibility. this, for now, on the books is a very short schedule. just two meetings. not clear how long they're going to take. but the president said over the weekend he's going to know in the first minute if kim jong un is serious about giving up his weapons. he was asked how is he going to know. he said his touch, his feel, gut
instincts. >> gut instinct is how the president's going on this. i know there's a half mermaid-half lion there. what's the worst experience you've had so far, getting used to the humidity? >> reporter: i haven't been here long. president trump got here sunday and had a very light schedule on monday. he's officially finished for the day, kendis. he had a meeting with the prime minister of singapore and an expanded lunch. this is a chance for the president to say thank you for hosting this historic summit. he appreciated the kindness, hospitality and friendship. on thursday, it's president trump's birthday. and i guess the singapore officials did their legwork. they knew that birthday was coming. and at the end of the lunch they
surprised him with a birthday cake. yes, he likes cake, but president trump also really likes ice cream. so hopefully they gave him the two scoops that he likes with pie and cake. and another little fun detail. when he has events at the white house he gets two scoops of ice cream. everybody else at the table only gets one. >> if they're starting things off on the right foot, i think giving him a birthday cake was a nice gesture. >> you can win anybody over with sweets. >> that is true. no doubt. our karen travers there in singapore. thank you. >> and thousands of journalists are covering every angle of this summit. but north koreans have slight details on this. >> we usually hear from abc's julie cho when she's home. this morning she's in singapore. >> reporter: the mood here on the ground, cautiously hopeful. asian countries welcome kim's first step out of isolation into the stage of international
diplomacy. north koreans woke up to this headline. it reads, our nation's great leader departs for first historic meeting with u.s. president. they also mentioned that he flew to singapore on a chinese plane. this is the furthest a north korean leader has ever been away, including his father and grandfather. singapore paying extra attention in security around st. bridges hotel where kim is staying. cost of hosting this event, $15 million u.s. and the singapore prime minister says half of that is spent on security alone. now if there's one party that is left out of this historic summit, it is south korea. president moon jae-in did a great job as a go-between between the two leaders up to this state. we know the president wanted to be here, but obviously, he wasn't invited. >> she's referring to the president of south korea who
wanted to be there for the meeting, but it's supposed to be a man-on-man thing with the president of the united states and the north korean dictator. while the press has moved on to singapore, he still has in the back of his mind the spar with u.s. allies. >> the president is slamming canadian prime minister justin trudeau. they refused to sign a traditional statement of solidarity with the g-7 nations, president trump did. and he was back on twitter saying we can't let our friends or allies take advantage of us anymore. here is brad mielke. >> the international community's collective jaw was on the floor this weekend. president trump issued scathing tweets about canadian prime minister justin trudeau before and after the g-7 but became furious when trudeau openly criticized american tariffs. but justin fishel was at this event and said the most shocking thing involved the country that wasn't even there. >> he started the whole thing off by saying russia should be
back in the g-8. that's a big deal. he said the group would be more meaningful if russia were in it. he completely glossed over the fact, because he brought it up and was asked about it, that russia was removed in 2014 because they illegally annexed crimea. that's how the substance started. then it was the tariff battle. and that's where everything started to erupt at the end of the summit. so as we see relationships with traditional allies plummet to new lows, potential olive branches for north korea and russia. here more on "start here" later this morning. check it out apple podcast or your favorite podcasting app. >> keep it here on abc for the full coverage of the summit in singapore. >> we'll be live around 9:00 eastern time when president trump and kim jung-un meet for the first time. to south florida and a community that was urged to be on guard just days before a

now finally able to enjoy the summer sun with the wedding out of the way. but to the newest member of the family, the duchess, did she show too much skin for the queen's taste? the controversy. from abc news, this is "world news now." >> the right em-fas-is? >> you nailed it. meghan showing a little shoulder there. >> yeah, she's wild. you wonder what kind of controversial outfit kim jong un will have. >> he will not show too much shoulder. >> the world is watching as the president and kim jong un, fresh from super cuts is there in singapore, preparing to shake
hands as everyone watches on. it will be the first time these two world leaders have met. first time for any u.s. president and north korean leader. >> officials from the u.s. and north korea are still making final preparations for the talks in what may be the first step toward dismantling kim's nuclear arsenal. let's go to karen travers. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. hopefully super cuts gave kim jong un some hair spray. it is very hot and steamy in singapore. but today is a light day for president trump and kim jong un. we just saw the president a few moments ago having lunch with the prime minister of singapore. they had a working meeting before that. and it was a chance to thank him for hosting this incredible summit. he said he appreciates the hospitality, the friendship. the president said tuesday's summit with kim could be very interesting and that things could work out very nicely.
there are expectations ahead of the meeting. why are we here in singapore is the big question. there are a couple reasons for that. it's a place kim jong un could travel to, someplace he could logistically get to, unlike some cities in europe. singapore has relations with north korea, it made it easier for kim jong un to come here, and this is a very strictly-controlled country. there are tough restrictions on demonstrations. there are restrictions on the media. it's another good place to have a tightly-controlled environment. the security forces here are very familiar with pulling off logistics as something as monumental as something here in singapore. >> they're meeting on an island a little secluded itself. do we have any idea of the president's expectations for the summit at all? >> reporter: he's really trying to temper expectations.
he has a long paper trail of saying this is going to be a big success unless it isn't. the latest thing he's saying is it could be a big success or a modified success. that's the big question. what does the united states consider a success? they are pushing for denuclearization, a firm commitment, but how and when is still very much in the air. >> you're saying their expectations may be different, but the big goal is denuclearization. and even the way the u.s./north korea define that seems to be different as well. so how do you reconcile that? >> reporter: the united states is pushing for what white house officials call complete, irreversible, denuclearization, verifiable. they want to make sure that this is actually happening, and the president's been a little bit
all over the map on whether he wants to see it done all at once, which had been the original position in the u.s., get it all done, give up everything or whether it can be done in stages, give up something, get a reward. that's what some allies, china of course, working with north korea, that's what they're pushing for. kim doesn't want to give up his leverage. there are concerns about the security and future of the regime. president trump has been saying don't worry, we will guarantee your protection and also not be pushing for regime change. >> the president said all at once is ideal, but piece by piece may have to be the way. we'll see how much he can get done. karen travers, live from singapore. >> singapore had two weeks to plan the summit and get the incredible security operation into place. >> it's as tight as it's ever been and will be that way until the summit is over.
jordan phelp has more on that. >> reporter: good morning, from here in singapore, which is under tight security with president trump and kim jong un here in town. staying at hotels just about a half a mile apart from one another. the two leaders are set to meet tomorrow at a resort on an island that is being tightly controlled by the government. there's only one road connecting that island to the mainland here. and all the comings and goings are being monitored with checkpoints on the road and coast guard boats on the water. singapore is already a tightly-controlled and governed country, which is one of the reasons it was an attractive option for this summit. an added 5,000 police officers are on duty for this occasion, and of course all of this added security doesn't come cheap. but the government of singapore is footing the bill, an estimated $20 million. it's extremely rare for kim jong un to ever travel outside the borders of north korea. and you can see here his
they're seen here actually jogging alongside un. certainly, not a sight you see every day, diane and kendis. >> i don't think i've ever seen that before. >> he's had it a couple times. >> a uber pulls away and i'm not ready yet. >> he apparently had a plane that flew in his own personal toilet as well as food and of course that limousine as well. >> personal toilet for security. all right. jordan, thank you. >> stay with abc news for full coverage of the historic summit in singapore. >> we will be live tonight at 9:00 eastern time when president trump and kim jong un meet for the first time. but back here in the u.s., while the president is on the other side of the globe, the first lady is state side. >> she served as honorary chair with jack nicklaus and sheila johnson. >> in a statement, the first
lady thanked the ford theater's society for its dedication, education and the arts. >> all right. so melania keeping busy while president trump is in singapore. >> and apparently, melania is unable to travel for four to six weeks after she had surgery last month. >> we wish the first lady well, glad to see her up and about. coming up, we are learning new details about anthony bourdain's final days. >> and a lot of stars in attendance, will ganss fresh off the red carpet. first, a look at today's temperatures.
