President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un arrived in Singapore Sunday in advance of their Tuesday summit. Both were greeted at the airport by Singapore's Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan and immediately went to their hotels. Trump told reporters he feels "very good" about the summit shortly after arrival.

Kim met with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who will speak with Trump Monday. Trump traveled on Air Force One from the G7 meeting in Canada, while Kim arrived via an Air China plane. Kim is traveling with a large retinue of guards and officials, including his sister, Kim Yo Jong.
