The first-ever meeting between a USA president and a North Korean leader was to kick off at 9am on Tuesday (2am BST) with a handshake, an image sure to be devoured from Washington to Pyongyang and beyond.
The president reminded critics that since he first agreed to meet Kim Jong-un, North Korea stopped testing nuclear weapons, paused missile launches, and returned American hostages to the United States.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the president was fully prepared for the meeting.
The United States and South Korea are not now talking about withdrawing any of the roughly 26,000 US troops on the Korean peninsula, Mattis said at a Pentagon press briefing.
The consensus for a second summit was also reached during multiple working-level meetings between the two sides, Joongang Ilbo said.
Trump and Kim, who have traded a volley of insults and even threatened each other of nuclear war, are meeting at Capella Hotel, a five-star resort on Singapore'sSentosa Island.
"Certainly it creates conditions for further forward movement and decreases general tensions around the Korean peninsula", he added. The two clasped hands for a long while as they posed for photos in front of a row of USA and North Korean flags.
Detailed discussions between USA and North Korea officials "are ongoing and have moved more quickly than expected", the White House said in a statement. "Tomorrow, we will get our clearest indication to date whether Chairman Kim Jong-un shares this vision", Pompeo said.
"I think that I brought awareness to a lot of things around the world and I think North Korea has given a lot of people the opportunity to do this conference now and I hope it's a success". Trump briefly called off the summit a few weeks ago before agreeing again to the meeting.
Trump also said during a press conference Saturday at the Group of Seven (G-7) meeting that he'll gauge Kim's mindset "within the first minute" of meeting him in Singapore.
But critics said the Kim and Trump summit was more style than substance, producing a document short on specifics about the key issue of Pyongyang's atomic weapons.

The duo have met nine times throughout their career, all on clay, with Nadal taking six meetings to Thiem's three. But from the moment Nadal broke serve in the 10th game to win the opening set Thiem's belief ebbed away.
Another U.S. servicemember in Somalia was killed in May 2017 during an operation about 40 miles west of Mogadishu. U.S. troops alongside Somali and Kenyan forces came under fire during operation against al-Shabab in Jubaland.
In their joint deceleration, Trump and Kim vowed to continue building "a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean Peninsula". Thus, it's hard to see the outcome of the summit as anything but a series of motherhood statements with little substance.
The Canadian leader pulled a "sophomoric political stunt for domestic consumption", Kudlow said, that amounted to "a betrayal". Trump, during the G7 summit , antagonized leaders of G7 nations. "I may have had a much different attitude".
Kim Jong Un has reportedly taken his own toilet to the Singapore summit where he is due to have nuclear talks with Donald Trump . Lee has said the summit would cost Singapore about S$20 million ($15 million), more than half of which would go on security.
