Preparing for North Korea summit

Posted: Updated:
La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

President Donald Trump landed on Singapore's Sentosa Island early Sunday morning for the highly anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. 

Flying in from Canada directly after the 44th G7 Summit in Quebec, President Trump now prepares for the historic meeting less than 24 hours away.

One of Trump's goals for the summit is to make a deal that would denuclearize the country.

Local lawmakers warn of similar agreements the regime has not fulfilled in the past.

"North Korea has been down this road before, offering to do tangible things and then not producing," Representative Ron Kind of Wisconsin's 3rd Congressional District describes.

Stressing the importance of clarity during the historic meeting, Kind says President Trump can benefit from clear communication.

"It's important that we make it clear to them what we mean by denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula so, ultimately, they know what the ask is," Kind concludes.

President Trump and Kim are set to meet at 9 a.m. on Tuesday in Singapore, which is 8 p.m. on Monday locally.
