President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un will hold talks in Singapore on Monday night, the first time a sitting U.S. president has agreed to meet with a North Korean leader. President Trump, who has said he wants “normalization” with the North, is expected to discuss U.S. demands for long-term denuclearization. We’ll discuss the summit and what’s at stake for peace on the Korean peninsula.
