7:03 am
short time on the g7 is very much on his mind. he ripped off a series of tweets overnight, critical of some of the u.s.'s closest friends. we have complete coverage, we'll begin with peter alexander in singapore this morning. hi, peter. good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. that meeting will begin just 11 hours from now and within the last hour or so, the white house has revealed new details about how it will go down. it will begin with president trump and kim jong-un alone in the room, just the two men and their translators before they invite in some other officials, among them the secretary of state mike pompeo. then he'll follow up with a working lunch. so why is the president leaving so soon? tomorrow the white house says it's because the on going talks between the two sides have been progressing much more quickly than they expected. but what is still unclear, what, if anything, they've agreed to. >> reporter: this morning secretary of state mike pompeo focussed on the next 24 hours. >> president trump is going into this meeting with confidence,
7:04 am
positive attitude and eagerness for real progress. >> reporter: overnight, president trump meeting with singapore's prime minister, the host of today's summit. >> had a very interesting meeting, particularly tomorrow. it will work out good. >> reporter: the president and kim jong-un both arrives in singapore sunday. the north korean dictator flying in on an american-built jet. security officials trotting alongside his motorcade through the streets of singapore. mr. trump is billing the summit as a get to know you plus, predicting it won't take him long to size kim up. >> i think within the first minute i'll know. >> how? >> just my touch, my feel. that's what. that's what i do. >> reporter: raising the stakes for the north korean leader. >> i feel that kim jong-un wants to do something great for his people, and he has that opportunity. and he won't have that opportunity again. >> reporter: is summit comes after months of heightened tensions with the two men trading rhetoric. >> rocket man is on a suicide
7:05 am
mission for himself and for his regime. >> reporter: the segt for the summit this resort on sentosa island, off the southern coast of singapore. the former british colonial trading post, now a global economic power in its own right. the biggest question surrounding the summit, will kim agree to give up his nuclear weapons? as u.s. officials are still trying to determine the size and scope of his weapons program. experts caution full denuclearization could take more than a decade with many skeptical kim will ever abandon his program entirely. >> back live in singapore, president trump is in for the night, but the north korean dictator kim jong-un is out. he is exploring downtown singapore as we speak. within the last hour from this perch, we actually saw the streets being closed down by police as his motorcade wound its way through here. there are now indications that this evening, as you can see from this picture, he is out on the town, alongside the foreign minister of singapore with one
7:06 am
of their stops expected to be the luxurious casino here. savannah, that's the latest. back to you. >> peter, thank you. >> the president's trip to singapores comes on the heels of a heated g7 summit where he stoked tensions with some of america's most important allies. nbc's kristen welker has that part of the morning. hey, kristen good morning. >> good morning. the president is escalating his war of words with a new twitter outburst overnight. he's in singapore looking to make a friend out of one of america's oldest foes, all while increasing at odds with america's allies, lashing out of canada's prime minister in unusually personal terms. it's a calculated effort before showing strength meeting with kim jong-un. will it work or will it backfire? >> reporter: hours before talking nuclear weapons with kim jong-un, president trump monday morning still venting on twitter about trade tariffs and the g7 summit. fair trade is now to be called full trade. if it's not reciprocal. the president concluding a
7:07 am
contentious visit with america's oldest al lice, first agreeing to sign a joint economic pledge, then abruptly pulling out by tweet after taking off. attacking canadian prime minister justin trudeau as very dishonest and weak after trudeau in measured remarks called new u.s. tariffs on steel and aluminum insulting and vowed to retaliate. >> canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around. >> reporter: the president mocking trudeau again monday. tweeting, justin acts hurt when called out. mr. trump's advisers slamming the prime minister, call his remarks a betrayal. >> he really stabbed us in the back. >> there's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with president donald j. trump. >> reporter: but trudeau's office says the prime minister said nothing he's said before, in public and private conversations with the president. mr. trump's sudden reversal, stunning allies. germany responding with its own tariffs.
7:08 am
french president macron, weeks ago, hand in hand with mr. trump, now accusing him of incoherence and inconsistency. also alarmed, senator john mccain, tweeting his own message to foreign leaders. americans stand with you, even if the president doesn't. the white house is framing the president's angry reaction as strategic positioning before sitting down with kim jong-un. >> he is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with north korea. nor should he >> this was about north korea? >> of course it was, in large part. >> let's take one more look at this picture that's making waves around the world with many saying it captures this global moment. president trump facing off against his allies in increasingly isolated. now remember, this all came after the president called for russia to be reinstated into what was formerly the g8. allies balked but vladimir putin welcomed the president's statements. savannah?
7:09 am
>> let's bring in former energy secretary u.n. ambassador on. he has travelled to north korea eight times, secured the release of three americans in the past and also has met directly with kim jong-un's father also opened communications with the current regime to secure the release of otto warmbier. good to have you. we have your whole resume in there. you really are the perfect person to talk to because you actually negotiated with north koreans. what should the president expect? >> well, first, he should take kim jong-un aside that north koreans don't negotiate across negotiating tables. he should expect kim jong-un to be focussed, relentless, well prepared. and what the north koreans never do is they never say yes. if you make a proposal to them, they don't compromise. they don't think like we do. they try to outlast you. so, i think the president needs to substantively on the nuclear issue, on the missile issue, on the human rights issues, on the
7:10 am
normalization issues be very, very focussed and try to pinpoint them because the north koreans try to slip away from most of their agreements. >> you just said that the north koreans were shrewd, very prepared. the president has said for him it's more about his own touch and feel. what do you think of that? does that concern you or do you think actually that might work? >> well, it concerns me because, you know, as a former diplomat, you have to be totally prepared. you have to know the issues. you have to listen to your secretary of state, your adviser. president doesn't seem to do that a lot. my worry is that the president is going to let kim jong-un slip away not focus on timelines. i think for the denuclearization issue, the most important thing is verification. finding ways to make sure that the north koreans comply with their agreements, that they discuss their inventory, disclose it, where is all the nuclear missiles. >> well, that's the thing because as you know better than
7:11 am
anyone else, we've made deals before with the north koreans and they cheated. so how do you make sure you're not getting that situation again? >> well, one of the problems in the past deals is that we didn't have enough inspectors. we have to get inspectors out there. we have to get them to disclose where their missile and nuclear sites are. we have to find ways to make sure that their timelines. this agreement may be two to three years, but most importantly verification, inspectors, timeline. >> bottom line, do you think this was a good move for the president to meet face to face with kim jong-un? i mean n some sense it's a freeby because that's something they've wanted, just the meeting alone, the optics alone. on the other hand, all the old diplomacy that didn't work in the past, so where do you come down on it? >> well, i come down supporting the president. i want him to succeed, but i worry. in the past, the north koreans have always wanted a meeting with the president of the united states. they got it. so we made a major concession. now it's up to them to make
7:12 am
concessions. i just hope the president doesn't forget about human rights issues, about issues relating to our soldiers, our remains of our soldiers from the korean war, bring them home to their families. help the japanese with the abduction issue, but also do something about the north korean people. many live in a goo lag. also normalize relations. set up separate embassies. it's good for countries to talk together. hotlines, normalization, everything is focussed on the nuclear issue. that's the most important issue. the north koreans have to find ways to destroy their nuclear weapons, their missiles, set up a schedule for that to happen. it's a big risk gamble, but it's worth it. but i'm worried. i worry. >> all right. well, you'll probably be worrying for the next 12 to 15 hours or longer. former ambassador bill richardson, thank you very much. we appreciate it. severe weather parts of east coast hit with flooding rain overnight. al is here with the latest on
7:13 am
all that. hey, al. good morning. >> thanks so much. you can see, this is philadelphia. and about two to three, maybe even four to five inches of rain falling in several hours and that created a real mess. rescue teams had to rescue folks in high water. we always tell you, turn around. don't drown. and we have more of this on tap for today. in fact, flood watches around the del mar va peninsula, on into southern new jersey. more strong storms firing their way through as we put the radar into motion and show you what we expect during the day today, this frontal dip down over virginia it will start to dry out today, but we will also watch some of this moisture reform again tomorrow as it moves through to the south. rain fall amounts anywhere from about a quarter to a half an inch, but locally could be upwards of another inch or so oversaturated ground, guys, that could cause more problems. back to you. >> al, thank you. now to florida where investigators are looking into a tragic alligator attack. a woman was killed there while
7:14 am
she was out walking her dogs. nbc's kerry sanders has that story this morning. kerry, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, savannah. this morning the park here where the attack took place remains closed. it's unclear when officials will reopen it. there's a saying in florida that in every body of water just assume that there is an alligator. sadly in this case, that was true. >> reporter: this morning, the park where a south florida woman was killed by a vicious alligator attack was locked shut. 47-year-old woman's death is a tragedy. there had been warnings to be aware of gators in the area. >> there have been alligators in the area. you have to be careful. >> just days before a 6 foot gator was caught near a neighbor's front door, a notice from the homeowner's association warning exercise caution with our families and pets. mindful that alligators, snakes and other wildlife may be in the area, according to the south florida sun sentinel.
