As preparations are underway for a US-North Korea summit, US officials are trying to solve the logistical issue of who will pay for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's housing, according to a new report.
A week after abruptly scrapping the summit with Kim, President Donald Trump announced Friday that the historic talks were back on for June 12 in Singapore.
With its economy weakened from tough sanctions, Pyongyang is requiring that another country pay for Kim and his delegation's hotel bill, The Washington Post reported Friday.
According to the Post, Kim is demanding to stay at the luxury, five-star Fullerton hotel, where a presidential suite costs more than $6,000 a night....

Demanding little sucker isn’t he.
The Donald knows how to deal with punks like Kim.
I’d give a weeks pay to pay for his room and board. Get on with it. Umm, wait, make that a month’s pay since he’s so hungry and all.
Simple. Take it out of the UN’s hide.
Simple, split it!
This is a: Sharticle
It is so easy for Trump to play the media for fools. Always having them looking this way while all the real action takes place that way.
BTW, I wonder when they (the media) will catch on that the wall is getting built.
The Washington Post is throwing out insults to North Korea in hopes of derailing the meeting. The Washington Post doesn’t want Trump to look good.
Don’t you just love how the Washington Post and CNN care about the real important things.
Trust Big Don and Pompeo.
Simple. Take it out of the UNs hide.
The UN receives about 25% of it’s money from us. Trump will handle it in the right way.
Give him the hotel room, and hell, open minibar too!
Get him hooked on the lifestyle he and his leaders would have if his country wasn’t a 3rd world s-hole.
If a meeting would de-facto lead to further appeasement in the same template as under previous administrations, would not one actually -want- the meeting derailed in favor of true CVID (denuclearization)which was the administrations admirable initial starting point?
Offer the very best accommodations available on one of our flat-tops. Fly him back and forth on an Osprey with a fighter escort. Fly over a few missile boats along the way. Give Fat Boy an idea of what is waiting if he gets out of line.
He had millions to build and launch missiles to intimidate the world; but needs someone else to pick up the tab for his hotel bill?
Sorry, Kimmy. Perhaps Super 8 and Dennys is more your speed. Of course, we can cancel until he saves his allowance. This is just a low brow ploy to make someone else foot the bill for his demands.
Trump hotel? Seriously, why is a newspaper wasting ink and bandwidth on such a silly topic?
Pay for it but put him in the basement next to the plumbing supplies.
The money is clearly not a real issue. The real issue is that this is “shape of the table” negotiations, an NK specialty.
Who pays for the meeting has nothing to do with appeasement or denuclearization.
