"I think that hes going to surprise on the upside, very much on the upside, well see", Trump said in Quebec of Kim.
Mike Pompeo said Thursday that Kim Jong-un had personally assured him that, "he is prepared to denuclearize".
Here are some photos of the two holding their own little summit to get you pumped for the real thing next week.
"The situation was much more shocking than I had expected", he said.
Asked how long it would take for him to know if Kim was honest about giving up nuclear weapons Mr Trump said: "I think within the first minute I'll know".
"It's unknown territory in the truest sense, but I really feel confident", he said. Well, I think very quickly Ill know whether something good is going to happen. "I think the G-8 would be better".
Since becoming the North's leader in 2011, Kim has only taken one known overseas trip by air - to Dalian in China in early May - flying in his personal Ilyushin-62M jet and accompanied by a cargo plane. That would be illegal, under the 2016 law, unless North Korea also agrees to key human rights reforms.

But this summit might just be a Trump-Kim affair.
The summit is set to mark the first meeting between a sitting US President and a North Korean leader and comes after Trump and Kim previously engaged in a war of words over the North Korean nuclear program and each nation's military capabilities. "We're going in with a very positive spirit".
In their letter, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Robert Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called for any agreement with North Korea to meet five key points: that all weapons of mass destruction be removed or dismantled; that there be no uranium enrichment or plutonium reprocessing; that it end all ballistic missile testing; that it allow "anytime, anywhere" inspections of its facilities; and that a deal be permanent.
"We might see a similar scale of security personnel from North Korea and safety protocols as we did in April, but they'll also have help from Singapore like special vehicles and agents", said Cho Seong-ryoul, senior research fellow at the Institute for National Security Strategy. He said he was told to stay away from Sentosa Island and the Shangri-La Hotel.
It's not clear if he had shipped over the massive bulletproof and fireproof limousine that became a social media sensation when Kim was shown being driven across the border between the Koreas during his first summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, in April, with a dozen staunch bodyguards encircling the auto.
"I think we were played".
Last year it carried out by far its most powerful nuclear test to date and launched missiles capable of reaching the USA mainland, sending tensions soaring to a level unseen in years as a newly-elected Trump traded threats of war and colorful personal insults with Kim, with Trump dubbed a "dotard" and Kim "Little Rocket Man".
Beijing, the North's only major ally and key economic lifeline, is also ready for a peace agreement, according to William Overholt, an Asia expert and senior fellow at Harvard University, and could "come down very hard on the North" if Pyongyang refuses to abandon its nukes despite potential USA offers of a peace treaty, security guarantees, diplomatic recognition and economic assistance.
