As he left the G7 summit in Canada, Mr Trump called on the pint-sized despot to seize on his “one time shot” to make history and agree to disarm in exchange for economic prosperity.

Boasting of his deal making prowess, the president insisted on the chances of success: “I’ll know within the first minute. My touch, my feel, that’s what I do.

“You know how they say you know whether you’re going to like someone in the first five seconds?

“Very quickly I think I’ll know if something positive is going to happen”.

After a choppy run up to their meeting, the president refused to put odds on the chances of winning a peace deal for North Korea to disarm.

He explained: “There has not been done before. Very little is known about him, but I think he is going to surprise on the upside.

“We’re going in with a very positive attitude, and I think it will be fine.

But who knows? Maybe it won’t work out.

“But at the minimum, but at least we would have met each other.”
