Trump aims to persuade the North Korean dictator to give up his country’s nuclear arsenal in exchange for relief from U.S. economic sanctions. He’s promised American investment in the under-developed country would follow.

The U.S. campaign to economically isolate North Korea will continue even as preparations for the summit advance, Sanders said Monday, adding there has been no change in what Trump has described as a “maximum pressure” campaign on North Korea.

The Singapore government issued a public order establishing special zones around both the Shangri-La and Capella hotels from June 10 to June 14. Anyone entering the zones will be required to comply with strict conditions and drones will be prohibited from flying in the areas.
