With preparations for President Donald Trump's meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore well underway, one of the biggest logistical hurdles may come down to a simple question: who is paying for Kim's hotel? Trump and Pompeo have both promised North Korea a bright and prosperous future should the communist regime agree to abandon nuclear weapons.

If the meeting takes place in Pyongyang, it would be the first time a world leader has visited Kim in the capital.

"We discussed our priorities for the potential summit between our leaders".
