Trump-Kim Summit

Watch Kim Jong Un get a rock star welcome in Singapore

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un received a superstar's welcome in Singapore on Monday, where his arrival was greeted by cheers and shouts of "Mr. Kim! Mr. Kim!" The reception is particularly startling as Kim is heavily criticized by international bodies and human rights organizations for running "one of the most repressive authoritarian states in the world."

"Unclear if [the people cheering] have ever read the news, ever," tweeted CNN's MJ Lee.

Administration officials have told NBC News that President Trump does not plan to discuss human rights at his summit with Kim on Tuesday.
