chairman kim. the u.s. position, he says, remains clear and unchanged. we heard from president trump a short time ago here as well saying he's looking forward to what he described as a very interesting meeting tomorrow. he said that he thinks it could workout very nicely. the president was vetted by the singaporean prime minister today, the foreign minister posting a picture of president trump enjoying a birthday cake in advance of his birthday which will be later in the week on thursday. to give you a sense of the stakes here for kim jong-un, this meeting already gives him a win, the respectability, the dictator this hermiten lookinti alongside president trump. it is not noted what president trump will take away. he doesn't know if complete and verifiable denuclearization is

word complete around the issue of denuclearization. arguably we could say the issues with the u.s. present bigger gaps and also higher stakes. president trump is going into this having alienated long-time allies, whereas kim jong-un has spent months seeking them out. and he has found them in south korea, in china, and in russia. all of them now taking concrete steps toward building economic ties with north korea. so, for the u.s., a return to maximum pressure is not an option. phillip? >> fascinating and consequential days ahead. thank you so much, janice. >> and while that historic north korean summit may be imminent, it is a in he continues his fight against members of the g7, particularly canada, calling free trade fool's trade and name checking canadian prime minister justin trudeau in twitter posts once more. it follows a stunning reversal
