Kim set a deadline for ending summit, prompting earlier exit by Trump: Bloomberg

(Reuters) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un set a deadline of Tuesday for ending the Singapore summit, prompting President Donald Trump to move up his departure to Tuesday instead of Wednesday as planned, Bloomberg News reported on Monday.

Citing two U.S. officials familiar with the planning, Bloomberg said Trump had been willing to stay longer if negotiations were progressing, but since Kim set definite plans for departure, so did Trump.
