A North Korean source in one of the two Hamgyong provinces told Daily NK on Tuesday, ahead of his Singapore summit with U.S. President Donald Trump, Kim heightened surveillance of senior military officials and confiscated their mobile phones. After departing that gathering in Quebec, Trump attacked Justin Trudeau as "dishonest" and "weak" after the Canadian prime minister told reporters his government would retaliate against new USA tariffs it viewed as unfair. I mean, obviously, it's the very front end of a process.
Negotiations between the USA and North Korean teams are continuing in an attempt to iron out the details of what was a vaguely worded agreement between the two leaders in Singapore.
Last September, Trump taunted Kim as "Rocket Man" in a speech at the United Nations, during which he vowed to "totally destroy North Korea" if the US was forced to defend itself or its allies.

Trump has expressed frustration over criticism that he legitimized the communist regime and gave it concessions by meeting with the leader and agreeing to suspend military exercises between South Korea and the U.S. In return, critics say, North Korea committed only to the vaguely worded "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula.
Trump's meeting with Kim came on the heels of his combative G-7 meeting with traditional US allies, including Canada and the United Kingdom.
Trump said he has no plans to decrease the number of USA troops in the South as part of security assurances for the North, but has left open the possibility to do so in the future.
North Korea remains under strict sanctions imposed in August by the United Nations Security Council that ban exports of coal, iron, lead and seafood - which account for $1 billion of the country's annual $3 billion in trade.
