When President Donald Trump meets with North Korean dictator Kim Jon-Un next week in Singapore, former National Basketball Association star Dennis Rodman will be on hand, according to a report from the New York Post.
Following a conciliatory statement issued by North Korea via state media shortly after, Trump reversed his decision and preparations for the summit resumed.
Affirming their support for Trump's scheduled June 12 meeting with Kim Jong Un in Singapore, seven influential Democrats including Senator Minority Leader Chuck Schumer warned Trump against signing a deal at any cost, and laid out conditions they want met before any agreement is struck. "North Korea looks like it's moving along very well".
The on-again-off-again summit is expected to focus on U.S. efforts to get North Korea to abandon its nuclear program.
Singapore also revoked all work permits held by North Korean citizens in March.
Last month, Trump canceled the summit following threatening language by Kim and the North Koreans.
While referencing the finalization of logistics, Sanders also commented on bilateral negotiations occurring along the North-South border between USA and DPRK representatives.
But they say the public relations value of such a historic event could quickly fade if Trump fails to wring any significant concessions from Kim toward the dismantling of North Korea's nuclear arsenal. "We're not paying for their expenses".
"We've reached a point where the summit is extremely fragile and can easily be tipped out of balance", Graham Ong-Webb, a research fellow at Singapore's S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, told AFP.
FOX Business reached out to McDonald's for comment on whether they would be interested in opening in North Korea, however, the company did not respond at the time of publication.
