Trump and Kim’s Secluded Singapore Pleasure Island

James Crabtree (The New York Times, 11/06/2018)

On the roads just outside Singapore’s Capella Hotel last Friday, gardeners were replanting the flower beds and laborers were touching up road markings, shading their heads from the fierce midday heat. Two uniformed men stood by the resort’s long driveway armed with clipboards and walkie-talkies, ushering curious onlookers away. “We have a private meeting inside,” one said.

Private, but not exactly secret. On Tuesday, the sprawling complex on Sentosa, Singapore’s “pleasure island,” is preparing to host the most anticipated diplomatic meeting in recent history, as President Trump meets with the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un.

Trump, Kudlow asserted, “is not going to permit any show of weakness on the trip to negotiate with North Korea, nor should he.” Kudlow continued that “Kim must not see American weakness,” adding that Trudeau “can’t put Trump in a position of being weak going into the North Korean talks with Kim. He can’t do that. And by the way, President Trump is not weak. He will be very strong, as he always is.”
