Asked by reporters how the talks were going, Trump said: “A lot of progress - really very positive. I think better than anybody could have expected. Top of the line, very good. We’re going now for a signing.” He gave no further details.

Trump made the remarks as he and Kim walked around Singapore’s Capella hotel after a working lunch aimed at discussing ways to end the nuclear standoff on the Korean peninsula.
