So yesterday, Reuters reported:
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is scheduled to depart Singapore at 2 p.m. local time on Tuesday, a source who is involved in the planning of his visit to the city-state for a summit with U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday.
The Tuesday departure plan is tentative, the source said asking for anonymity because of the sensitivity of the information.
So in typical Trump fashion (e.g., canceling the Eagles White House visit after learning few players would attend), Trump today announces he will leave early too:
In the latest twist in the drama-filled nuclear talks with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, President Donald Trump announced on the eve of their historic meeting that he will be leaving Singapore early because the nuclear negotiations have moved “more quickly than expected.”
That was before the two had even met, and it was not clear whether it was good news or not.
No details were given on any possible progress in preliminary talks between aides at the talks. And the abrupt change in schedule came shortly after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had seemed to lower expectations for the meeting, which Trump had earlier predicted could potentially yield an on-the-spot end to the Korean War.
Seems Kim might beat him out the door …
Trump, after the first-ever meeting between U.S. and North Korean leaders, had been scheduled to fly back to Washington on Wednesday morning after spending Tuesday with Kim in Singapore. But on the eve of the summit, he altered his schedule, opting to return at about 8 p.m. on Tuesday after a full day of meetings with Kim — almost 15 hours earlier than previously anticipated.
So they are going to have a quickie, but who’s screwing who?
