Trump told reporters he expected a "very tremendous summit" aimed at delivering on promises to get North Korea to agree to concrete steps toward giving up its nuclear weapons. Trump is expected to arrive Tuesday evening. Kim arrived to a red-carpet reception on Tuesday after a 65-hour, 2,500-mile ride on an armored train that traveled from Pyongyang through China. He was greeted by Vietnamese officials, and waved to a crowd of people carrying Vietnamese and North Korean flags.
