The US president said the agreement was "pretty comprehensive," though details of the document were not immediately released. Trump did say the DPRK’s denuclearization process will be starting “very quickly,” in response to a question from a journalist.

Trump also said he “absolutely” would invite Kim to the White House, when asked by a reporter, and added that he expected to see the DPRK leader many times in the future.

"Well, it was not easy to get here… The old prejudices and practices worked as obstacles on our way forward, but we overcame all of them and we are here today," said Kim.

Democratic People's Republic of Korea leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump reached the venue of their historic summit in Singapore on Tuesday, after both sides sought to narrow differences over how to end a nuclear standoff.

8:00 am

US President Donald Trump left the Shangri-La Hotel at 8 am Tuesday morning for the Capella hotel in Sentosa, an island resort off the south coast of Singapore, for a historic summit with Democratic People’s Republic of Korea leader Kim Jong-un.

Trump sent two tweets in the morning saying “meetings between staffs and representatives are going well and quickly… but in the end that doesn’t matter. We will all know soon whether or not a real deal, unlike those of the past, can happen!”

In another tweet, he blasted domestic critics in the US who called his meeting a major loss for the US. Trump called them haters and losers, saying “we have our hostages, testing, research, and all missile launches have stopped, and these pundits, who have called me wrong from the beginning, have nothing else they can say? We will be fine.”

Analysts believe the success of the Trump-Kim summit will help boost Republican lawmakers in their midterm elections. Democrats have already threatened to impeach Trump if they win majority in the Congress.
